Up in the morning
Up in the evening
Picking down clocks
When the birds come out to eat
Oh to eat

Up on the mountain
Down in the king's lair
Pushing these blocks
In the heat of the afternoon,
Oh afternoon

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here
at all
No.

It's
who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's night
or day

So won't you save us
What we are
Don't look clear
Cause it's all uphill from here
Oh.

Up in the attic
Down in the cellar
Lost in the static
Coming back for more
Oh for more

Out with the reason
In with the season
Taking down names
In my book of jealousy
Jealousy

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here at all
No.

It's who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's night or day

Because it's who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's night or day

So won't you save us
What we are
Don't look clear
Cause it's all uphill from here

Oh.

They say we're crazy [8x]


It's who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's night or day

Because it's who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's night or day

So won't you save us
What we are
Don't look clear
Cause it's all uphill from here
Oh.
(They say we're crazy)
