(Pardon me while I burst, pardon me while I burst.)

A decade ago I never thought I would be, at twenty three,
On the verge of spontaneous combustion.
Woe-is-me.
But I guess that it comes with the territory;
An ominous landscape of never ending calamity.

I need you to hear.
I need you to see that I have had all I can take and
exploding seems like a definite possibility to me.

So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world and it's people's mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame.
Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same.

Not two days ago, I was having a look in a book
and I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knees.
I said, “I can relate,” 'cause lately I've been thinking of combustication
as a welcomed vacation from the burdens of the planet earth.
Like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D...
And thinking so much differently.

Pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of this world, and it's people's mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame.
Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same.
Never be the same.

Pardon me while I burst into flames.
Pardon me, pardon me, pardon me...

So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world and it's people's mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame.
Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same.
Pardon me... I'll never be the same, yeah.

Hidden track: Smokin the Herb Again

Yo Yo Yo, Yo, Yo Yo What
Smoking
We're smoking, we're smoking the herb again
We're smoking, we're smoking, we're smoking the herb again

(Chris)
Damn, I really wish I could find my sack man
Must have got eaten by Pac-Man
If I had it I could smoke again
Smoke with my friends to the very end
But now I'm trying to comprehend
When's the next time that I'll smoke again
I need to know, please tell when will we smoke again

(Jose)
I got a buddy, his name is Ted
He's got a problem going through his head
He doesn't know how to puff-puff-give
But I like so I'll teach him and I'll let him live
Everyday we teach him right
When he defies, we have to fight
But at the end of the trying day
We says it's ok and we puff away

(Mike)
Just the other night, I saw you, you were smokin not sharing and being tight
But that's ok, you are my friend, we're smoking it until the very end
The lessons that we put out, we order you to try it out
It's nice to smoke, yea that's what we're all about

Smoking
We're smoking, we're smoking the herb again
We're smoking, we're smoking, we're smoking the herb again

Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho
Spit it Ya Wet It, Don't Babysit just Hit it, Now Pass it to the Left

I smoke, you smoke, we smoke, they smoke, smoking everywhere
I smoke, you smoke, we smoke, they smoke, smoking all together

Smoking
We're smoking, we're smoking the herb again
We're smoking, we're smoking, we're smoking the herb again
