Loopy says he likes it up on top
Yes he knows if he ever lets go
The pretty machine will swallow him whole
He has no fear he has no sense of shame
He will not stop until everybody everywhere
Wants to know his name
The one hit wonder he likes the big time
He says he wants to live the kind of life
That will make the folks back home
Bitch and whine
He knows if he ever even gets the chance
He'd sell his soul to make the monster dance
They can't hurt you unless you let them
Loopy says he sure does like the good life
Yes he knows all those women who scheme
Are just pretty pictures in the pretty machine
He knows if he ever gets to try
He will bite down hard to make the monster cry
He knows if he ever even gets a chance
He'd sell his soul to make the monster dance
They can't hurt you unless you let them
I will say it again
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
Loopy says he likes it up on top
He prays to god and he hopes like hell
That the pretty machine they will never fail
He has no fear, he doesn't really even have the time
He knows that the world is in love with the pretty machine
Oh yeah, the pretty machine
The one hit wonder, he likes the big time
He wants to live the kind of life
That will make the folks back home
Scream bitch and whine
He knows if he ever gets to try
He will bite down hard to make the monster cry
He knows if he ever even gets a chance
He'd sell his soul to make the monster dance
He knows if he ever even gets to play
He will stomp like god to make the monster say
They can't hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They can't hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
