The Lyrics

Sometimes the best plan is what you come up with when the plan breaks down. But it still helps to have a plan to begin with, you know?
There's a little line with this "save the world" stuff
It's a little hard to spy when you're new but squint up:
A plan to save the day
Can't be a blank page
Sure, there have been times when we've winged it, but
That can't be Plan "A", only forced to make up
Stuff all on the fly, mate
At the "we're screwed" stage

So cut the crap and use your brains, don't let them fart
Just start thinking
You can go and claim that plans made with complex parts
Always falter
But would a real doctor decide that because surgery's hopes
May be tiny
That he should make cyborgs without knowing how to make one?
No, that's stupid, cut it out
Need to cut it out
Calm down, cut it out
Shut up, cut it out

Can't just go in guns blazing, they'll shoot us down
"Won't expect it"? Lies, that's the whole problem now
Impregnable, it's true
We can't just break through
"Do it anyway, no way that it's that tough
Enough of all our lives and we'll get in there to punch
Could work, it's legit
Why won't you go along with it?"

Because it's mad, I know I shouldn't be so harsh
On your thinking
But it's just insane, you'd have to try really hard
To fail harder
You think you're so smarter than all of us together, a joke
I'm not smiling
Crazily insistent on storming all the castles 'cause
"They can't murder us all now!"
That's dumb, cut it out
Shut up, cut it out
Need to cut it out

Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh

We need a plan to break in there, needs sev'ral parts
And more thinking
Than your "Blast away and improvise from there" card
Should know better
Application letter of yours, still have that big envelope
Asked us nicely
To join in because your dad was last seen rushing head on
Tell me, how did that turn out?
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh (that sounds real mean now)
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh (but you called us clowns)
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh (for not rushing out)
Hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh

What I do know is nothing gives me writer's block harder than a song title that only shows up in one verse.
