So, so you think you can tell,
Heaven from hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field,
From a cold steel rail?
Smile from a veil,
Do you think you can tell?

So, do you think we can change,
Everybody that hates,
Before its too late?
So proud to be free,
But who can we blame?
Don't be ashamed,
Do you think we can change?

How I wish,
How I wish you were here.
We're a world of lost souls,
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year.
Running over the same old crowd,
But have we found,
the same old fears?
Wish you were here.

We don't need,
Need anymore pain.
We just need to remain on the very same page,
So much to gain.

No more losing a friend,
We're losing ourselves.
We just need your help.
So glad you're here,
So glad you're here.

    General CommentIt's probably here because...John Rzeznik was a part of it...so why not put it here? ::shrugs:: I think John did a good job on it (but Pink Floyd does do it best, of course. ;) I could've done with the Fred Durst, though. But anyways...yay for John.

    General Commentactually, i think the lyrics are "running over the same old ground".. but i can be wrong, they've changed the lyrics a lot and they did it good.
