Lyrics

I don't understand
How to be the man
What do people want from me?
Gathering around
Waiting for some sound
I'm as dumb as I can be

No contact, no contact
I'm living on my own
No contact, no contact
This dungeon is my home

Fascination grows
Sticking up their nose
Everyone is curious
I'm an alien
Guess I've always been
That's why I cause such a fuss

No contact, no contact
I'm living on my own
No contact, no contact
This dungeon is my home

Learn to read
Learn how to write
You'll do good
You'll be all right

No contact

No contact, no contact
I'm living on my own
No contact, no contact
This dungeon is my home

No contact, no contact
No contact
No contact, no contact
No contact
