Staring At Sound

I just got one thing to say
Oh, it's a beautiful day
Let's just not talk about the gloom
Let's all go die in my living room

I want to be a movie star
And play the part of a man from outer space
When we meet, I'll fall in love with you
And we have sex, but I don't know what to do, what to do

I want to hear some band play
A song that sounds just like you look
And when they play, I'll follow them around
'Cause all I'd do is stare at the sound

I'd just stare at the sound
I'd just stare at the sound
I'd just go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck
Hey, hey
What, what, what, what
