Lyrics

Hey, you're a riddle, I say, as I move aside
Like I really need your advice
You don't leave me alone
Little men try, don't get a lot done
Living in sin don't move me, either way
I get a feeling you're so vague
Like I said before
LIttle men come when anything goes

When the rain comes, I sit home and pray
Make it all numb, I wish it all away
All I really need's just somewhere to hide away
Kick him when he's down, here, alone, I'll put up and fight
Kick him when he's down, beat me all the way, I'll take it all night
Kick him when he's down, hey, don't worry, I'll get along home, alright

Hey, everybody's supposed to be the same
So how come that they're so lame?
It's like taking a fall
Keep on running back into that wall
Awake in a dream, get up and go to work
But I'm feeling like such a jerk
Like I said before
Little men come when everything goes

When the rain comes, I sit home and pray
Make it all numb, I wish it all away
All I really need is just somewhere to hide away
Kick him when he's down, here, alone, I'll put up and fight
Kick him when he's down, beat me all the way, I'll take it all night
Kick him when he's down, hey, don't worry, I'll get along home, alright, so right

So, hey, you're a riddle, I say, as I move aside
Like I really need your advice
You won't leave it alone
Little men try, don't get a lot done
Living in sin don't move me, either way
I get a feeling you're so vague
Like I said before
Little men come when anything goes

When the rain comes, I sit home and pray
Make it all numb, I wish it all away
All I really need is just somewhere to hide away
Kick him when he's down, here, alone, I'll put up and fight
Kick him when he's down, beat me all the way, I'll take it all night
Kick him when he's down, hey, don't worry, I'll get along home, alright

Here, alone, I'll put up and fight (so believe it)
Beat me all the way, I'll take it all night (better believe it)
Hey, don't worry, I'll get along home, alright, so right (believe it, alright, so right)

So right, so right
So right, so right
