When you choose your fate, don't think too much.
If you just can't wait, throw out your crutch.
Make a name for yourself, make a self for your name.
Take a picture or two, because you won't be the same
When you lose your mind, don't think at all.
If you do, you'll find you can't recall
What you did to yourself, what you did to the world.
Take a picture or two, said your mind as it twirled in your head.

It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.

There's a world of dreams, and it's out of reach.
But above the screams, you hear its' speech.
It's a beautiful night, it's a beautiful year.
Take a picture or two, it'll soon disappear
When the clock strikes one, look out below.
(Look out below.)
It has just begun, and you don't know
(You don't know)
What we did to ourselves, what we did to the sky.
Take a picture or two, said your mind with a sigh in your head.

It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.
It said: Take a picture, it said in your head.

Hmm?

    General CommentI think this song gives out the message that as the world spirals into a pathetic slump, the memories of good times must be remembered. The world cannot help itself out of its' own fate, as expressed in the line:
    "There's a world of dreams, and it's out of reach."
