Took a big trip
With your old band
To your homeland
For the wrong man

Making big plans
For your own sake
Hope they don't bend
Hope they don't break

Took a tip from a rodeo show
Get a grip or you're gonna get thrown
Take your aim when you take a shot
For the man under you will take everything you got

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren't looking
Keep a smile but you burn it hot
It's a mad, mad, world

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren't looking
Fix a smile but you burn it hot
It's a mad, mad, world

    General Commentto me the song is about a person whos at loss for the one they love.. like a holes been torn between them and hes lost him or her.. thats what it feels like. and its at the climax where everything is falling apart. that person puts on a smile when they know inside everything is falling apart. while he keeps a smile he burns it hot meaning he looses it and gets angry about everything being torn apart and losing its flame.. with all this happening the world around him goes mad because he was soo madly in love with this person. and she left him astray to realize shes left him for good..
