I ran through town, like a burning building
With my hands up like I don’t trust ceilings
You said, “You alright?” and I said, “Not really,
But how are you?”

I hung up pictures where the paint was peeling
While you did those things, the guys were dealing
You said it gives you extraordinary feelings
It’s appealing, though it’s killing
And you don’t think you can give it all up
No, you can’t

In a small house
In a small town
We made big plans
Just to get out of the basement
And change the world

In a small house
In a small town
We made big plans
Just to get out of the basement
And change the world
We’ll change the world

You said you walk your best,
But the world is tilting
I said if you need help, then I am willing
You’re staggering through, something’s building
Inside you and you are guilty
The things that were once fulfilling aren’t
No, they aren’t

In a small house
In a small town
We made big plans
Just to get out of the basement
And change the world

In a small house
In a small town
We made big plans
Just to get out of the basement
And change the world
We’ll change the world
