could've been should've been one, two, three, but recently something has happened to me
everything always came easily but today I woke up and felt nothing
could it be finally finding out that there's absolutely nothing worth shouting about
faced with the choice of just losing my voice I'd rather shut up and say nothing

on the outside we have to stick together
on the downside you just get in the way
I see grey skies and i feel a little better
I see grey skies ahead and it's fine by me oh
all the right people seem squeaky clean well all the right people mean nothing to me
cheatin' and creepin' just to stay on track they'll offer one hand and put a knife in your back
you notice that something is terribly wrong when they offer the world and you turn and they're gone
you knew from the start you could never belong
you came from the outside, just stay on the outside

stay on the outside

people and places just pass me by
if I told you I was sorry I'd be telling a lie
happily happy, I'm way outside and I'll be happy as long as i stay here
don't you go pushing me stay right out
I'm prepared to give you something to complain about
don't you go pushing me stay right out
better stay back and do nothing

on the outside we have to stick together
on the downside you just get in the way
i see grey skies ahead and i feel a little better
i see grey skies ahead and it's fine by me oh
all the right people seem squeaky clean
well all the right people mean nothing to me
creepin' and cheatin' to stay on track
offer one hand and put a knife in your back
you notice that something is terribly wrong when they offer the world and they turn and they're gone
you knew from the start you could never belong
you came from the outside, you'll stay on the outside

live on the outside welcome the blow
we're happy to offer you nothing at all
this is just entertainment so make no mistake
if you're looking for answers you're in the wrong place
if you're asking for answers you're in the wrong place
there's absolutely nothing worth trying to say
just watch where you're walking and who's in your way
stand up for the outside
stay on the outside
