"When It All Goes Wrong Again" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
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 & again
I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong

Yeah, when it all goes wrong again (x 7)
When it all goes wrong...

    General CommentGreat song, but the line in the 7th stanza:

    "I'll be singing in the rain when the bad dreams com"

    Should be "I'll be singing in the rain when the bed's on fire"

    General Comment"i'll be singing in the rain when the bed's on fire, and it all goes wrong again" is true. his brother, george had a cigerette, and fell asleep with it in his hand, and the bed caught on fire. so he got up, and simply put it out. art watched and thought it was great.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by Everclear...the pessimist rises up and kill the beast that afflicts him metaphorically speaking.
