Remember
All those playground days together
You said we'd both stay good forever
I never thought you were a liar
'Til you let your heart go haywire

People
It seems that too many these days
Are corrupted, dirty walking clichés
I thought you were creative, inspired,
But you let your heart go haywire

Cheated
Cheated your way up in the world
Cheated on that sweet, smiling girl
Your dignity has long expired
And now your heart's gone haywire

Since when
Yea, since when did f-beep-beep-k
Mean more to you than L-O-V-E?
Chose the wrong four letters to admire
Oh, how your heart's gone haywire

Inhale
The smoke hides your face, clouds your eyes
Empties your conscience, deludes your mind
As you get higher and higher
And now your heart's gone haywire

Didn't I?
Didn't I try so hard to warn you?
Haven't I tried my best to fix you?
Something in there I just couldn't rewire…
I'm sorry to say
That your heart's gone haywire.
