Never Meant To Be
Captain Destructo

Well I woke up this morning with dreams of you in my head
Felt like it might be a bad day, I ought to stay in my bead
But I jumped up and ran to the telephone to give you a call
Stumbling around through the darkness in my hall

So I reached for the phone and as the fog started lifting from my brain
Then I knew right away what I was about to do was just insane
So I hung up the phone and I climbed on back in bed
And I took my pillow and I covered up my head

And I just can't seem to get you out of my heart
And I need to find myself a brand new start

Yeah I woke up this morning with dreams of you in my head
Felt like it might be a bad day, I ought to stay in my bead
Can't believe this is really happening to me
If I open up my eyes what will I see

And I just can't seem to get you out of my heart
And I need to find myself a brand new start
Cause I know there was a time when you loved me
But I guess it was just never meant to be

I'm your Captain Destructo
And I feel I must know
What makes everything tick inside

So I crash and smash it
Continue to bash it
till there's nothing left that can hide

I'm your Captain Destructo
Yeah I'm your Captain Destructo
I'm your Captain Destructo
Someone that you know

If it's plastic fantastic
It won't be too drastic
I'll crack it apart at the seams

If it's metal I'll settle
For drilling and milling
Or zap it with my laser beam

I'm your Captain Destructo
I'm your Captain Destructo
I'm your Captain Destructo
Someone that you know

Yeah I'm your Captain Destructo
And wherever I go
I'm leaving a trail of debris

Cause if I reveal it
Well then I can steal it
And that's how I got my degree

So hide your invention
Cause it's my intention
To steal it and call it my own

And then I'll impress some
With all that I have done
And they'll think I did it alone

I'm your Captain Destructo
I'm your Captain Destructo
I'm your Captain Destructo
Someone that you know

Ah here I go
