So you say you like the way I look?
So you say you like the way I look when I fall and no one’s there to catch me?
So you say you like the way I move?
So you say you like the way I move into every storm I see above me?
‘Cause everybody’s doin’ what they like,
And what they like is not enough for me;
I do not feel the same…

Here we go, ‘cause

Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it!
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants/Everybody)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it! (Whatcha want is never whatcha get!)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants more!)
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
Here comes the wall, better lower your head!
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
You’re going too fast! (too fast, too fast…)

So you say you like the way I move?
So you say you like the way I move into every storm I see above me?
Breaker, breaker, one, two
Break out to break through
You can swim/drift where the tides take you
It’s about your attitude extension of your latitude rejection of gratitude
Whatever you think and do, who said every day’s gonna be fun?
Keep an eye on the web other people have spun
Who said every day’s gonna be fun?
Best recognize or betcha you’ll come undone!

‘Cause everybody’s doin’ what they like,
And what they like is not enough for me;
I do not feel the same…

Here we go, ‘cause

Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it!
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants/Everybody)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it! (Whatcha want is never whatcha get!)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants more!)
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
Here comes the wall, better lower your head!
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
You’re going too fast! (too fast, too fast…)

Grit your teeth! This is gonna be a bumpy ride out of your lifeline!
You’ll find hate/Fists shapeshifts to an electrified
Showin’ off/showin’ up tryin’ to fly sky high!

Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it!
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants/Everybody)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it! (Whatcha want is never whatcha get!)
Tell me why we always sweat it! (Whatcha want!)
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants more!)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it!
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants/Everybody)
Tell me why we always sweat it!
Everybody wants more but they never get it! (Whatcha want is never whatcha get!)
Tell me why we always sweat it! (Whatcha want!)
Everybody wants more…. (Everybody wants more!)
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
Everybody wants more….
Whatcha want is never whatcha get!
Everybody wants more….

    General CommentThis song is about how people are always trying to get more than they have, but what they really want they can never obtain. The verses are about someone who is being laughed at in his misfortune.

    This is a powerful song, albeit with a little hint of desperation. It's one of my favorites.

    General CommentMany pardons, people, but it seems as though I screwed up. My sources were incorrect for this one and this song is actually called Lightning Rod and had lyrics up already which are better than mine. Sorry ^_^;
