He said, he said, he said

He said you're just as boring as everyone else
When you tut and you moan and you squeal and you squelch
He said you're just as boring as everyone else
Nothing ever happens

Things replace things
Days replace days
Things replace things

She said I'm going use my teeth and my claws
She said I'm going use my teeth and my claws
She said I'm going use my teeth and my breasts
I'm gonna make it happen, she said

Run, run, run, run, run, run
And you cannot run or ever, ever escape
Run, run, run, run, run, run
And you cannot run or ever hide it away
Run, run, run, run, run, run
Something glorious is about to happen
Run, run, run, run, run, run
The reckoning, the reckoning

Reckoning, the reckoning
Reckoning, the reckoning
Reckoning, the reckoning
Reckoning

You're just as boring as everyone else
When you tut and you moan and you squeal and you squelch
They go you're just as boring as everyone else
Stuck past timing

The fear and the yearning
The fear and the consumption
The fear and the yearning
It's gonna eat you alive, they go

Run, run, run, run, run, run
And you cannot run or ever, ever escape
Run, run, run, run, run, run
And you cannot run or ever hide it away
Run, run, run, run, run, run
Something glorious is about to happen
Run, run, run, run, run, run
The reckoning

They go, they say
They go, they say
They go, they say
They go, they say, say
They say, they go

They go why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?

Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so fucking useless

Play it cool boy, play it cool boy
Play it cool boy, play it cool boy
Play it cool boy, play it cool boy
Play it cool boy, play it cool boy
