Watch your fingers slip, you're almost gone.
Have you grown tired of holding on?
Celebrity lifestlye appeals until you peel away its skin.
And see the darkness that resides there and the pain lies within.
I used to be afraid of failure, now i'm more afriad... to win.
I guess success just ain't the best dressed; more like some big mess.
I'd rather be what i've been.

Tell me simple words, keep it easy does.
Gotta put the meaning back to the place it was.
All these simple words I can understand.
Simple words for a simple man.

I remember sitting, quaking, nervous on the bus.
And all the friends I wasn't making, "'Cause you're not one of us".
I learned you can't rely on the bottom line and watch the top line too.
Because somewhere in the middle someone's got it in for you.
I used to be afraid of failure but now that i've finally broken through.
The little boy that you used to pick on is picking up on you.

Tell me simple words, keep it easy does.
Gotta put the meaning back to the place it was.
All these simple words that I can understand.
Simple words for a simple man, for a simple man.

Oh, I used to be a failure, but now that i've finally broken through
The little kid that you used to pick on is picking up on you.

Tell me simple words, keep it easy does.
Gotta put the meaning back to the place it was.
All these simple words I can understand.
Simple words for a simple man.

If I told you why, would you leave me here to die?
If I told you when, would you talk to me again? (Only simple words; Yaaii!)
If I told you why, would you need an alibi? (Simple words)
If I told you when, would you talk to me again? (Tell me simple words)

If I told you why, why'd you leave me here to die? (Tell me simple words)
If I told you when, would you talk to me again? (Only simple words)
If I told you why, why would you leave me here to die? (Tell me simple words)
If I told you when, would you talk to me again? (Simple words)
If I told you how, then why'd you give me this about? (Simple Words, Yaaii!) So If I told you when, would you win again? (Simple words, ooo hoo, ooo hoo)
