"Song from an American Movie, Pt. 2" as written by and Greg Eklund Art Alexakis....
Yes I think it's safe to say
I feel good about the place
That I have made in the world today
I get all sticky inside
When I close my eyes and I open up wide

I see pictures in the clouds
So obscene I gotta laugh out loud
I look back to find my way
And reminisce nice about the good old days

Yeah, when I saw my brother above me
I remember the words he said
"When you dream you hit bottom
Chances are good you're gonna wake up dead"

I will be up on top when the sky falls down
And It all goes wrong again

Yeah,
I will be sitting on top when it all goes wrong again
Yeah,
I will be sitting on top when it all goes wrong

Yes I think it's safe to say
I feel good about the sin
That I inflict on my own skin
I pay money to cut and burn
Pictures like lessons that I need to learn

I see faces on the ceiling
I see them move
I hear them singing
I lay laughing here by myself
And think about the time that I spent in Hell

When I saw my brother below me
I remember the words he said
"When you need to wake up happy
You better sleep right in your own warm bed"

I will be singing in the rain
When my beds on fire and it all goes wrong again

Whoa,
I will be singing in the rain
When it all goes wrong again
Whoa, whoa,
I will be singing in the rain
When it all goes wrong

Where are you gonna be
When it all comes down?
What are you gonna do
When it all comes down?
What are you gonna be
When it all comes down?
What are you gonna do
When it all comes down on you?

Sitting on top of the world
(When it all goes wrong again)
I'll be sitting on top of the world
(When it all goes wrong again)

I will be sitting on top when the sky falls down
And it all goes wrong again
Whoa,
I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong again
Whoa, whoa,
I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong again
Again and again
I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong

Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong

    General CommentThis is such a nice song. It's about beating depression and finding joy in life, even in the little things. He obviously has been through some rough times, but despite the disillusionment, he finds his own glimmer of hope in his daughter and knows things can only get better.

    General Commentthat and he's come to realize that he doesn't need to care or worry about what every one else thinks because he's got a great daughter, and from his rough childhood he can raise her right and learn from past mistakes
