It's when we're cover to cover
It's an endless fuse
Chain-led peter never seems to get any smarter

I'm always marking pages so
That I don't get confused
End up in a fight I never had any part of

Listen naive plaything
Coming over, clueless
Every time you call
An accident just waiting to happen
Still hasn't found out
How to take a fall

Make me a present
Make it something sweet
Small enough to go unnoticed and big enough to compete

What does a massive pass that keeps
Blocking up my street
Looking for a new contender to disassemble

Listen naive plaything
Coming over, clueless
Every time you call
An accident just waiting to happen
Still hasn't found out
How to take a fall
How to take a fall
How to take a fall
