i'm the last man standing
oh shit, i'm all alone
take your time
and you will find
your shine
i'll figure out what's with mine
just don't leave me behind
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
and it's alright, yeah it's all al-

when you're feeling insignificant again
and the motion picture camera pans out on you
just to show you how small you are
in the grand scheme of the universe
well i can't think of anything much worse
take your time
and you will find
your shine
i'll figure out what's with mine
just don't leave me behind
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
and it's alright, yeah it's all alright
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all al-

i remember when we used to be
happy as slaves
now i'm not sure how i should behave
maybe i shouldn't be calling you baby
anymore
why did you have to go and get sick of this?
could you really shut your mouth about this?
are you gonna walk out on this?
are you giving up on
our love, it could surely destroy
the earth around us
with it, the magnetic minds collide

when your feet get knocked out from under you
and the roar of the crowd is way too loud
screaming stay down, stay down, stay down
stay strong, wipe the sweat from your brow,
stand tall, before you're no good at all.

take your time
and you will find
your shine
i'll figure out what's with mine
just don't leave me behind
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright
oh, it's alright, yeah it's all alright

maybe we're just low on gasoline
we used to be such a good machine
maybe, i shouldn't be calling you baby anymore
why did you have to go and get sick of this?
could you really shut your mouth about this?
are you gonna walk out on this?
are you giving up on
our love could surely destroy the earth around us
and with it, our magnetic minds collide
our love could surely destroy
our love could surely destroy
our love could surely destroy
our love could surely destroy
the earth.

    General CommentI think this is a song about picking up the pieces after a breakup or a fight or some sort of falling out, and learning from your mistakes. He's trying to find out what went wrong, and trying to convince her to try again. ("Maybe we're just low on gasoline, we used to be such a good machine." and ""Are you going to walk out on this? Are you giving up on our love?")

    I always hear it as "...you will find YOUR shine, I'll figure out what's with mine," and that makes more sense to me, because he's saying that they're still figuring themselves out, and that if they stay together and stay strong, they will discover what makes them tick and how they can be successful.
