Think fast,
Why do you believe we're on the
Right track?
Anyone can see it when they
Look back,
But tryin' to tell the future isn't quite so easy.

Zoom out,
Everyone's so focused on the
Right now,
No one wants to take a chance on
Somehow,
The dreamers and the schemers
They can both agree,
No one's in between.

Three, five, eight, ten,
I can write this song again!
Eighteen more times,
I'm not running out of rhymes.
Twenty more or forty-two,
'Til you finally see the truth:
It's not me, it's you!

Easy, happy, light and fun,
We can make the number one.
Seven writers get a chunk,
That's how modern music's done!
Wonder why it's down on tubes?
Guess you haven't heard the news:
It's not me, it's you!

Come down,
Try to take it back to when you
First found
Something worth believing in, your
Heart pounds,
Back when you were dreaming of the guts and glory.

Time's up,
Smile and pack it in because I've
Had enough.
I'll wake up tomorrow, and you
Know what?
I'll be satisfied
That I could write my story,
Even glory-free.

Three, five, eight, ten,
I can write this song again!
Eighteen more times,
I'm not running out of rhymes.
Twenty more or forty-two,
'Til you finally see the truth:
It's not me, it's you!

Easy, happy, light and fun,
We can make the number one.
Seven writers get a chunk,
That's how modern music's done!
Wonder why it's down on tubes?
Guess you haven't heard the news:
It's not me, it's you!

Now,
Don't turn around,
We're all work-bound
And not afraid of what we've found.

Then,
In the end,
We'll transcend,
And not just pretend...

Three, five, eight, ten,
I can write this song again!
Eighteen more times,
I'm not running out of rhymes.
Twenty more or forty-two,
'Til you finally see the truth:
It's not me, it's you!

Easy, happy, light and fun,
We can make the number one.
Seven writers get a chunk,
That's how modern music's done!
Wonder why it's down on tubes?
Guess you haven't heard the news:
It's not me, it's you!

Three, five, eight, ten,
I can write this song again!
Eighteen more times,
I'm not running out of rhymes.
Twenty more or forty-two,
'Til you finally see the truth:
It's not me, it's you!

Easy, happy, light and fun,
We can make the number one.
Seven writers get a chunk,
That's how modern music's done!
Wonder why it's down on tubes?
Guess you haven't heard the news:
It's not me, it's you!
