The (Shipped) Gold Standard (3:19)

Cover of Folie à Deux

From Folie à Deux and 3 other releases

No. 6 song on the new Folie a Deux record.

Sometimes I wanna quit this song and become an accountant now
But I’m no good at math and besides the dollar is down
Plant palm trees on Lake Michigan before it gets cold
I gotta feel the wind chill again before I get old

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I’m afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we’re gonna leave this town

And get new passports and get get get get get out now

All the yes men said no comment
My mouth got going wrong way and all the calls started to roll in
The time my dad caught me a horse shoe crab
And I asked him if throwing it back into the sea would bring our luck back

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I’m afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we’re gonna leave this town
And get new passports get out now

Tell that boy I leave you alone
Like a storm, I turn my love
That’s in the profit of both in the business of show

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I’m afraid that someone else will hear me
Woah I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I’m afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we’re gonna leave this town (I know we’re gonna leave this town)

    lol i read a review that said pete was so cheeky with his pen while he was writing lyrics for this one that the reviewer was amazed he didn't title a song with an emoticon, hahaha. he also said someone forgot to tell stumpy that these songs were all basically pointless. but i like the way he sings em, anyway =D
