ADAM: My rock candy passion is bitter-sweet,
And onto the teeth,
'Cause she would rather fall in chocolate,
Than fall in love, especially with me.
I stood under the waterfall,
With a kiwi pineapple parasol,
As Cinderella dropped the crystal ball,
And made a concrete cavern a caterpillar concert hall.
I wish that we could sail our sad days away, forever,
In deep blue seas of paper machй,
LIGHTS: Let's dance in the moonlight!
ADAM: A barracuda chased our dog days away, forever,
Let's sink or swim, 'til we fall in love,
LIGHTS: And dance in the moonlight!
ADAM: When we join The Yacht Club.
I would rather go swimming with great white sharks,
Than wade in romance,
'Cause I can never find the courage to ask her to dinner, or even to dance,
Don't sweat under your overcoat,
'Cause my heart can't hover this paddle boat,
You'll hit the bottom of the highest note,
And the chatty tree frogs will never wanna leave your throat.
I wish that we could sail our sad days away, forever,
In deep blue seas of paper machй,
LIGHTS: Let's dance in the moonlight!
ADAM: A barracuda chased our dog days away, forever,
Let's sink or swim, 'til we fall in love,
LIGHTS: And dance in the moonlight!
Adam: When we join The Yacht Club.
LIGHTS: Let go of the world you know,
And plug in the party lights,
ADAM: Soak your cares in the solar flares,
That light up these island nights,
LIGHTS: Orange eclipse, I can taste your lips,
In the citrus afternoon,
ADAM: If you can fly, don't stop at the sky,
'Cause there's footprints on the Moon.
LIGHTS: It was you
I wish that we could sail our sad days away, forever,
In deep blue seas of paper machй,
LIGHTS: Let's dance in the moonlight!
ADAM: A barracuda chased our dog days away, forever,
Let's sink or swim, 'til we fall in love,
LIGHTS: And dance in the moonlight!
ADAM: When we join The Yacht Club.
LIGHTS: Let's dance in the moonlight,
ADAM: When we join The Yacht Club.

    Yeah, i'm pretty sure it is rock candy passion. Not raw candy passion. And the singer is lights. If you get the album, and look inside the cover it says that lights sings in it.
