Are you such a dreamer
To put the world to rights
I'll stay home forever
Where two and two always makes a five

I'll lay down the tracks
Sandbag and hide
January has April showers
And two and two always makes a five

It's the devil's way now
There is no way out
You can scream and you can shout
It is too late now

Because you have not been
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention

You have not been
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention

You have not been
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention

You have not been
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention
Paying attention ooh

I try to sing along
But I get it all wrong

I swat 'em like flies
But like flies the buggers
Keep coming back not
But I'm not

All hail to the thief
All hail to the thief
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not

Don't question my authority or put me in the box

Oh, go and tell the king that the sky is falling in
When it's not
But it's not
But it's not
Maybe not
Maybe not

OMG A DETECTIVE DEE VID! And it's beautiful and exciting! Vidder, I love it. I really love the way you played on five/fire at the beginning and used it as a repeating motif throughout (I love the spontaneous combustion subplot so much.) Thank you so much, mystery vidder!

Fabulous! I've been meaning to see this, and your vid shows off the gorgeous visuals so well. I love the abrupt stop at the end.

Holy crap, this is so cool. Really slick editing and motion and even though I don't know the source I was totally into it, and now I am going to check out the source because I really want to know the context for spontaneous combustion now (which was used AWESOMELY).

Ahhh! The song fits so perfectly and the pacing is just fantastic -- I love the abruptness of the end, too.

Oh, this is awesome. I really want to watch the source now. Love your summary and you used the song to great effect to illustrate how strange things get around Di.
