2003 Weezer Office version

I've got to ease this mental suffering
I've got to end this state of mind
I've got to stop this self-abusing
I'm getting harsher all the time

'Cause I'm waiting for the answer to come along
Waiting for the answer to soothe me like a song
Waiting for the answer, just can't get it wrong

Somebody break my heart
Somebody break my heart
Somebody burn the formula
Somebody burn the formula

I've calculated all the fractals
I've factored in the formula
I've figured out the final lesson
The lesson is I'm giving up

'Cause I'm waiting for the answer to come along
Waiting for the answer to soothe me like a song
Waiting for the answer, just can't do it wrong

Somebody break my heart
Somebody break my heart
Somebody burn the formula
Somebody burn the formula

'Cause I'm waiting for the answer to come along
Waiting for the answer to soothe me like a song
Waiting for the answer, just can't get it wrong
Get it wrong

Somebody break my heart
Somebody break my heart
Somebody burn the formula
Somebody burn the formula

Somebody warn me what could be
If I [?]

Somebody burn the formula
