Sick of understanding things I don't know anything about
Tick tock, this clock won't stop
It keeps on breaking
Forget the norm, this uniform is wearing thin
We're not waiting for a closing door, it's half past four
Get this over with, spend some change for what we're worth
What we're worth tonight

Open the window, these walls are caving in,
I'm drifting away
If you know that it's over, then why don't you just drop by
Break out the film, we'll fly
We always take it the wrong way, needless to say,
its alright
Simple minded is so hard to come by these days

Paper airplanes taking off and I got just the ticket
Sit still, stand up
These pills aren't putting me to sleep
Your last words don't mean a thing so put your diary away
We're all holding out for so much more, just keep the score
Get this over with, spend some change for what we're worth
What we're worth tonight

Open the window, these walls are caving in,
I'm drifting away
And all that I ask is:
If you know that it's over, then why don't you just drop by
Break out the film, we'll fly
We always take it the wrong way, needless to say,
its alright
Simple minded is so hard to come by these days

Take your pills and fade away,
This scene is swallowing me whole
And the hard lights on your day-to-day will make the news
Once again, you know exactly the feeling

Take your pills,
Fade away,
Take your pills,
Fade away,
Take your pills,
Fade away

And all I ask is that if you know that it's over,
Then why don't you just drop by?
Break out the farewells
I know we always take this the wrong way, but needless to say
It's alright,
Simple minded is so hard to come by these days

It's alright..

    General CommentI think it's about a break-up, and maybe friends getting involved trying to help. But this song seems pretty complex, in the way that there seems to be a lot of direct references to real life that most people wouldn't get.
