The Lyrics

Behold: the reason by "bravery" is not to be confused with "bold-faced stupidity"!

I know that I need another light inside my hall, mmm-mmm-mmm
But each time I plug one in, it sparks and pops, think somethin's wrong, mmm-mmm-mmm
So I'm flickin' on my lighter, climbin' down to find a
Fusebox, now I've found it deep down, I'm spyin'
That the best descriptive word is "frayed" and I'm appalled, mmm-mmm-mmm
I've gotta do somethin', somethin', somethin' (uh-huh)
Some completely dumb shit (yeah), dumb shit (uh), dumb shit

Touch live wires, that's the plan today
I'm told that it'll hurt, but they're all so lame
Watch me grab this, I'll be on my way
I'm sure that I'll be totally okay
Touch 'em, grab 'em, fondle 'em with glee
Cause I have no fear like a 90's tee
I've got this feelin' deep inside my brain
That I will live to see another day
Touch live wires


Some people tried to tell me they're unsafe to touch this way, mmm-mmm-mmm (uh)
But I prefer to think my actions prove I'm brave (yeah), I'm sayin' nay (uh-uh), mmm-mmm-mmm
Gonna jam in my fingers, get those cords all twisted
Those "experts" are pitchin' a hell of a shitfit
Cause those rubber gloves that they all gave (no)? I tossed away (tossed away), oh-oh-oh (ha)
It's a load of bupkis (yeah), bupkis (uh), bupkis (mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm)
Cause I won't feel nothin' (nothin'), nothin' (uh), nothin' (oh-oh-oh-oh)

Touch live wires, tell 'em to behave
Won't listen to the jerks who all try to say
"'Twill be tragic, so please stay away"
What do they know about this anyway?
Touch 'em, grab 'em, yellow, red and green
My flesh won't be seared, cause I'm awesome, see
You've got bad feelin's (hey)? Keep 'em tucked away
I don't need negativity today
Touch live wires (love this), wires (love this), love this (oh)
You can run, I love this (hey), love this (hey), love this (uh, uh)

No way you'll stop me, I'll touch it (yep), I'd bet nobody's done it (uh-huh)
Cause the man says some nonsense about the danger, such bollocks
The light's what I need so I can sit and read
The whole night through with ease, c'mon, c'mon, trust me
Ooh-ooh, there's no threat, it's true (none, none)
Hey, would I lie to you (none, none)?
Oh-oh, no threat here, it's true (none, none) (hey)
Mmm-mmm-mmm, time to watch me, dude

Touch live wires, did this yesterday
Least I think so, a blurr's all it is, huge haze
I'll still grab 'em, won't hear what you say
About the damage that it did to my brain
Touch live wires, force 'em into place
I'm gonna make it work so you'll shut your face (your face)
"This is madness! You'll get shocked!" No way (hey, hey)
Just cause your dad did, don't mean it's the same (oh-oh)
Touch 'em, grab 'em, watch the sparks miss me
Might just sip a beer while I work, you'll see
Your anxious feelin' was, in fact, misplaced
I'll live to shove said livin' in your face
Touch live wires (watch this), wires (watch this), watch this (uh)
Just sit there and watch this (touch live wires), watch this, watch this

What's this? "Extremely high voltage". Well, I don't need safety gloves, 'cause I'm Homer Simp*BRZAAAP*
