The Lyrics

Ever have trouble playing charades? This dude has...
Is it "The Rock"? Is it "a grape vine"?
Do it all one more time until I get it right
Is it "James Bond"? Is it somethin' that's brown?
Man, I thought this game would be nice, but my hair's torn out

Hard mimes
Gotta ask if you've got the word number right (hard mimes)
Gotta check if I've suddenly lost sight (new try)
How am I not close? Your charade must be "lies" (hard mimes)
Hard mimes
It's takin' too damn long to solve this (uh!)

Pacin' around tryna work it all out
When no words can be said, all my neurons shut down
Is it "big toe"? Gimme some sort of sign
One I can decipher, not your vague-as-hell shite

Hard mimes
Wonderin' if our definitions align (hard mimes)
Regret our setup of "one at a time" (new try)
Other folks might know, there's just blanks in my mind (hard mimes)
Hard mimes
I'm sure that a group could solve this (uh!)

Tell me: is it "talkin' cow"?
Can't believe that I'm not close now
Tell me: is it "singin' sow"?
So stupid that I'm not close now
I should be close now
Should be so close now
Yet I'm not close now
I'm far from close now

Hard mimes
It's a good thing that there's no limits on tries (hard mimes)
Cause I'll get revenge by wastin' your time (new try)
Either I will know or we'll stay 'til we die (hard mimes, hard mimes)
Hard mimes (hard mimes)
Hard mimes
We should really play Pictionary next time (hard mimes)
Easier to interpret scrawled down lines (new try)
Than your "puppet in a ceilin' fan" flails, right (hard mimes, hard mimes)
Hard mimes

Hard mimes
Is it "burger"? Is it "dragonfly"?
Is it "father"? Is it "piece of pie"?
Is it "feeler"? Is it "bloodshot eye"?
Is it "bastard"? Hard mimes
Could be "work out", could be "out of style"
Could be "lip pout", could be "data file"
Could be "pig snout", could be "giant pile"
Could be "burned out", could be "die"
Might do that before I can solve this (uh!)

I can't recall much about the times I've played charades, but given how my brain works, I'm pretty sure I'm in the same boat. I still have trouble detecting whether my brother's telling a joke or genuinely being a shit, gesture interpretation is a bit beyond me.
