Half a million Lego bricks

In this great big world wide knitted spiders nest
I wear a medium size long sleeved silken vest

If you can’t beat them join them

Interfaced with a fascia on a blank screen
crissed cross veins on my eyes in a bad dream
and it’s Friday so where is the ice cream?
I’m not playing this game

Inactive action men
Barbie murdered Ken
and then Teddy ran away
I’m not playing this game

Captain Scarlett got old and now he’s captain Blue
the Avengers have avenged
and now what can do they do?
Tom Thumb grew up
Tin-tin threw up
the peaceniks blew up the past

If I last until this morning’s through
I know exactly what to do
I won’t be playing with anyone and
especially not with you.
