Nothing was saving our day
there was nothing to say,
but you said something anyway
claiming I stepped out of line
which forced you to leave me,
as if that idea was mine.
Oh, you stupid thing
speaking of course as your dear departed
oh, you stupid thing
it wasn't me that you outsmarted
oh, you stupid thing
stopping it all
before it even started
I bet you knew it would come
that's just like you, to sit back
and just play it dumb
one word of warning would help
but that sacrifice was made
trying to save yourself
Oh, you stupid thing
speaking of course as your dear departed
oh, you stupid thing
it wasn't me that you outsmarted
oh, you stupid thing
stopping it all
before it even started
Maybe that's just how I am
to fall where I stand,
or I'm weak for that kind of man
one who looks helpless and brave
but you turned into a coward
I don't care for the parts you saved.
Oh, you stupid thing
speaking of course as your dear departed
oh, you stupid thing
it wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
speaking of course as your dear departed
oh, you stupid thing
it wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing.
