"Up Up Up" as written by and Robbie Takac....
Are you listenin' now?
Are you feelin' that way?
Aren't you terrified?
Of wakin' up too tired to try again?

Are you happy now
That you've shut yourself down
Are you paralyzed
By all the nonsense that's gone down

I know you're gonna see these things someday

Sorry-eyed we spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up I'm headin' for this evenin'
And it's up up up I'm headed for the clouds

Comin' down ain't the worst part
It only takes a second
To make a change that's gonna last

I hope you're gonna see these things happen someday
So don't stop lookin' for that light along the way

Sorry that we've spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up and headin' for this evenin'
And it's up up up and I'm headed for the clouds

    General CommentI can't believe no one has comented on this song. Anyway
    Are you listenin' now?
    Are you feelin' that way
    Areo't you terrified?
    Of wakin' up too tired to try again?
    along with
    Are you happy now
    That you've shut yourself down

    General CommentCoincidence or not? I sit infront of my computer at times and wonder why I can't be out there... with someone... doing better things... well oh well. This is a good song with a nice lively feel.

    General Commentwell im pretty sure robby wrote this song, so i dont think it really relates to john...

    anyways this is one of the best goo goo dolls song because anyone who's been put in a shitty situation like trying to start again in a new place aka me can relate
    like those days when your too tired to try again or when you get "paralyzed" from fear/being scared, but he's basically saying one day your gonna look back on these times and see what you went through
