you, you think its cool to be crazy
i say "you want risks? take risks."
there's no point in taking chances

and me, i wouldn't call it a sophomore slump
no i'd say im one step closer to bein' just where i want to be

away from this scene
away from this machine
alright

so meet me in the middle
well come on let's make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

step one:
find a partner, grab a pen
and don't you dare ask questions just sign on the dotted line

well, step two-oo-oo:
put your partner behind a desk
where they'll do absolutely nothing
so its your job to dance and smile
the whole time

well don't call it a trend
'cause it's the only way we think to get ahead

so meet me in the middle
well come on lets make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

it's no sense in complaining
if it doesn't change our minds
well take me by the hand let's compromise

i can feel your feet touching mine
if you can't dance, there's someone else in line

so meet me in the middle
well come on let's make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

there's no sense in complaining
if it doesn't change our minds
well take me by the hand let's compromise

    General Commenti was also at that show march 23, but they did not say it was about their split from atlantic, nate did say it was wrote while they were still at atlantic & and that they were less than pleased when the guys handed them this song because it is about what they were going through at the label.
