Yesterday tried 2 write a novel
But didn't know where 2 begin
So laid down N the grass tryin' 2 feel the world turn
Boy loses girl N a rain storm
Nuclear World War III
All that's left is pain & sorrow as far as he's concerned

So he says please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
'm lookin' 4 a better place 2 die

Maybe he's lookin' 4 a different world
Maybe he's lookin' 4 a brand new high
Maybe he would like a nice condo overlookin' the rings of Saturn
Maybe he wants affection instead of a plastic life
Maybe he doesn't know what he wants at all

So he says please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
'm lookin' 4 a better place 2 die

A newborn child knows nothing of destruction
Nothing of love & hate
What happens N between is a mystery
Becuz we don't give a damn about his fate

He said he'll never keep diaries 2 learn from his mistakes
Instead he'll just repeat all the good things that he's done
Fight 4 perfect love until it's perfect love he makes
When he's happy then his battle will B won (It's never 2 late)

Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me (Send 2 me...)
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me (Send 2 me... yeah)
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me (Send 2 me...)
'm lookin' 4 a better place 2 die
Oh yeah! (Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me)
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all ur moonbeam levels 2 me
He don't, he don't, he don't really wanna die
He don't wanna, he don't wanna, he don't wanna die
He don't wanna, he don't wanna, he don't wanna die
He don't really wanna die
