Well it's about time
It's beginning to hurt
Time you made up your mind
Just what is it all worth?

All my useless advice
All my hanging around
All your cutting down to size
All my bringing you down

Watch the clock on the wall
Feel the slowing of time
Hear a voice in the hall
Echoing in my mind

All your stupid ideals
You've got your head in the clouds
You should see how it feels
With your feet on the ground

Here I stand the accused
With your fist in my face
Feeling tired and bruised
With the bitterest taste

All my useless advice
All my hanging around
All your cutting down to size
All my bringing you down

All your stupid ideals
You've got your head in the clouds
You should see how it feels
With your feet on the ground

    General Commentwell that makes it a little odd because david is singing and not martin... so why would he sing a song about himself that martin had written? but i do see where your coming from...

    anyways, this is a great song. its airy but forceful at the same time. although not much happened in the video, i think it was one of the better dm videos.
