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