No one's gonna tell you when you have to leave
No, you're in control of all your own defeats
And when I politely ask you to give it a shot
You spin quickly around on one foot
and BANG, i'm gone

you like to live in the past days gone by
and you dwell on all of you loved ones that have died
and when i tell you to be happy with what you stil have
you start crying and say "look at what you did
you went and made me sad"

i just can't get it right
and it keeps me up all night

can't you see we're practically at zero
and i'm talking and goddammit,
you still don't even know
should i steal your attention?
wear strappy high heels
just tear the ticket, i'll try to sit still

I guess i'll just go take my place with the crowd
i had a face once, but you may never know that now
it's useless to scream, useless to yell
useless to give, and i just can't sell

i don't know what to do
the many are many, the few are few
and he said
"they're not all like you"
but they're there, so who cares if that's true
