"Sofi Needs a Ladder" was the third single deadmau5 released from his album 4x4=12, featuring SOFI. It was released on November 1st, 2010.


The song was originally an instrumental track called "You Need a Ladder", which included bits from the "Overworld theme" from Legend of Zelda. To avoid copyright issues, Zimmerman removed the intro and outro and added vocals from SOFI so the song could be published.


Let's play musical chairs, one of my favorite games
Especially now that you and I have traded place
You walk around in shoes that don't fit for a change
There is no way for you to win this race
Criss cross and turn your shirt inside out
You like to think I can't figure you out, but the tables have turned
What goes around comes around, you're about to get burned
Flip the script, you're checking in, I'm checking you out

You're just too sweet till you get on my nerves and hurt like cavity
You left a bad taste in my mouth, my Sour Patch Kid
You and me, it's no mystery, no magic trick
Let me hear this broken record again, just press repeat
I can be your new favorite waste of time, and you'll be mine
All I want is your attention, it's all the same thing
Are you in? What's it gonna be?
Don't roll with the punches, make it hard for me baby.

Drop you like a needle on the record, scratch my itch
Watch you walk in circles hit the beat
Drop you like a needle on the record, flip my switch
Go around in circles, hit the beat
