Catch fire overtaking

I GOT NOTHING      I HAVE / NOTHING     I HAVE

CHLAMYDIA I GOT FROM

WHAT     YOU / THINK I HAVE

EVERYTHING AND THIS I DON’T

HAVE / NOTHING      I GOT I

GOT I GOT NOTHING       NOTHING / GOOD BURNING

NOTHING FOR YOU AND THE NOSE WATER DRIPS

                       FROM THE EYES I GAVE YOU / NOTHING

TO GET       I HAVE NOTHING / NOTHING AFTER I SQUEEZE

LEMON AND GINGER /

AFTER I SQUEEZE THE GOT

I HAVE     / OF YOU DISSOLVED

HOT / NOTHING I SQUEEZE MORE THAN YOU
I AM SICK / MORE SICK THAN YOU EVER HAVE

BEEN / MY GOD      

                        I AM / HUMBLED          / HOWEVER

MORE / MUCH MORE HUMBLE THAN YOU WILL

EVER BE       EVER     / BE NOTHING

NEVER GOT      THROUGH TO THEM / THE LOVERS

LOVE TO LOOK AT ME AND WHILE

I DANCE THEY POINT AND STAND SO STILL

SIT DOWN       EVEN THEY DO 

MORE THAN WHAT I CAN       TRY

TO NEVER BE / NOTHING

TECHNICAL IT IS

SO TECHNICAL / I AM WORSHIPING /

BEEP / A ROBOT

                      I AM

                     A ROW      IN FRONT I AM

                     A KNEELING /

                     ROBOT WITH CHLAMYDIA

BOP       / BEEP BEP BOP / NOW NOT

NOTHING        / UP / / / / / / / / /        / THERE       NOW  / / /

LOOK       UP I KNEEL

DOWN I SIT

TO FEEL YOU / I CAN

HAVE YOU / CAN I /

FEEL EVERYTHING YOU ARE

we all watch

and wave while up,

up,

up they go

together
