Big hype; big letdown
Though it's easy to forget,
It will keep you on the ground
Don't count on good fortune
Just make your fortune count on you
Make your fortune count on you
Don't believe the hype
Don't believe the hype

(Driis)
You're fortunate now
But somehow your past should show you how
To keep your feet down on the ground

I have tried
I have failed
Every sea to scare the sailer, I have sailed
But the only souvenir I've returned with
Is never never never trust big hype
No, never

(DA)
I have loved
I have lost
I have made my way but also paid the cost
Though I wouldn't trade a lesson
The impression I wish to leave is
Never never never trust

Big hype; big letdown
Though it's easy to forget,
It will keep you on the ground
Don't count on good fortune
Just make your fortune count on you
Make your fortune count on you
Don't believe the hype
Don't believe the hype

(Driis)
You're fortunate now
But somehow your past should show you how
To keep your feet down on the ground

I have loved
I have lost
I have made my way but also paid the cost
Though I wouldn't trade a lesson
The impression I wish to leave is
Never never never trust

Big hype; big letdown
Though it's easy to forget,
It will keep you on the ground
Don't count on good fortune
Just make your fortune count on you
Make your fortune count on you
Don't believe the hype
Don't believe the hype

(Driis)
You're fortunate now
But somehow your past should show you how
To keep your feet down on the ground

It's lonely at the top when you kick friends off
Don't let them see you cry

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. This is one of the best works I've heard from Patrick in his entire career, Fall Out Boy included.
