The lights are out and the dance floor's waiting
but your too busy blending in the crowd.
The lights are out and the dance floor's waiting
but you're too busy following the crowd.

when you come back down now girl
When you come back down now girl

When you were a young girl
Did you wanna be something more baby
But now you feel your so lost and
your burning up inside
Yeah

We’re clocking in
to watch our fate come crashing down.
We're clocking in
to watch our fate fate come crashing down


I cant pretend I’m happy when
and now I know its pointless.
I’m constantly on a down
and I’m tired of waiting, waiting
Climb to the top we climb to the top
now you're falling again.

The lights are out and the dance floor's waiting
but you're too busy blending in the crowd.
The lights are out and the dance floor's waiting
but you're too busy following the crowd.

When you come back down now girl
When you come back down now girl

When I was a young boy
I wanted to be something more baby
but I can't dance no
and I sure as fuck can't sing.

We’re clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down
We're clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down

Why do we play into this motive
What are you waiting for tonight
You wonder
you wait
and you cant get through this without a line.

Climb to the top
we climb to the top
and now you're falling again.

Lets break it down.

Every thing’s so jaded
baby fathers trying hard to keep up with the Jones'
and his wife’s so dirty baby
sexing up every Tom, Dick and Harry in town
Yeah

Lets go

I can't pretend I’m happy when
and now I know its pointless
I’m constantly on a down and I’m tired of waiting, waiting

Climb to the top
we climb to the top
and now you're falling again.

I can't pretend I’m happy when
and now I know its pointless
I’m constantly on a down and I’m tired of waiting

Climb to the top

and now I know it's pointless

    General CommentThis song is about a guy in love with some girl who's to busy thying to be like everyone else.
    He picks her up and tries to make her her own person("Climb to the top, We climb to the top")
    But she always seems to let him down by going with the crowd ("And now you're falling again")
    He thinks abouthow much time he's wasted trying to save the relationship, waiting for her to come around and pretending to be happy.
    In the end, he finally realizes that it was all pointless.
