Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can barely keep my head above the water
Only sometimes I listen to my mother
I spent my last 5 dollars
On gasoline for a ride to your house

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
A series of unfortunate events
Prevent the senses from feeling defenseless, oh
I stumble and still soldier on
'Cause it doesn't have to mean that I'm wrong

[Verse 2]
It's exactly, precisely unexpected
I hit the nail right on the head, now I'm connected
I am so blindly corrected
No one's home, so looks like I missed out

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
A series of unfortunate events
Prevent the senses from feeling defenseless, oh
I stumble and still soldier on
'Cause it doesn't have to mean that I'm wrong
A series of unfortunate events
Prevent the senses from feeling defenseless, oh
I stumble and still soldier on
'Cause it doesn't have to mean that I'm wrong
