Oingo Boingo - Burn Me Up Lyrics

I would like to be a martyr
Over time, it's getting harder
Who do I have to go and kill
To get my face on a dollar bill

Every single time I look,
Someone else has beat me to it
Some poor bastard bites the dust
I really don't know who to trust
But there's one thing I can't deny:
I'd rather it was me they fried
Have a drink from an empty cup
Light a match and burn me up

I'm exhausted; I'm committed
I'm outsmarted; I'm outwitted
My head's filled with dynamite
It's coming out of my ears at night

I think I am being watched
Electric eyes that never turn off
Radar beams insinuating
Evil thoughts while I'm masturbating
And even my old Trinitron,
It's comin' through when nothing's on
Have a drink from an empty cup
Light a match and burn me up

    Scoop Maloop There is a proper mix of this performance on the Farewell CD. The DVD audio wasnt so good. Amazing show, even though with this song.. I think you had to ‘be there’ haha

  6. Brent Bailey

    The only Oingo Boingo song that I know of that has a thrash metal influence to it.

  7. Jackie Milan

    I love Danny Elfman's smile. Good lord. *dies*
