The World's Address

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Lincoln (1988) and on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

I know you deceived me, couldn't sleep last night
Now my tear stains on the wall reflect an ugly sight
I can see your secrets, no need to confess
Everyone looks naked when you know the world's address

The world's address, a place that's worn
A sad pun that reflects a sadder mess
I'll repeat it for those who may not have already guessed
The world's address

Life's parade of fashion just leaves me depressed
Under every garment I can see the world's address
Call the men of science and let them hear this song
Tell them Albert Einstein and Copernicus were wrong

The world's address, a place that's worn
A sad pun that reflects a sadder mess
I'll repeat it for those who may not have already guessed
The world's address

Call the men of science and let them hear this song
Tell them Albert Einstein and Copernicus were wrong

The world's address, a place that's worn
A sad pun that reflects a sadder mess
I'll repeat it for those who may not have already guessed

The world's address, a place that's worn
A sad pun that reflects a sadder mess
I'll say it one more time for those who may not have already guessed
The world's address
