Upside Down Lyrics - Barenaked Ladies

Review The Song (1)



I'm not surprised it's come to this
Sooner or later there must be another's kiss
Behind that kiss a promise of a life of bliss
Yeah, great
I won't be takin' the bait
I'd rather drown
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

Imagine everything you've done
Under a microscope on view for everyone
And if the King of Circumspection's here
He's come in vain
I won't be sharing the blame
I wear the crown
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

Nothing's good enough for me
To shake me from complacency
I make my mind up and I'll never be

The kind of man who'd make a choice
For if I hold my tongue I'll never lose my voice
If each attempted act of sabotage destroys all hope
I won't be needing a rope
I'm gagged and bound
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

And if the genie were set free
And by the laws of things like that, he's indebted to me
I'd bury my three wishes
deep down in the ground
So I will not turn my whole life upside down

Though I appreciate the aim
Tell Andy Warhol's ghost that he can keep his fame
I'd only use it to make everything the same again
So don't applaud till the end
I'm not around
Cause I will not turn my whole life upside down

Nothing's good enough for me
To shake me from complacency
I've made my mind up
I won't make a sound
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

Upside Down Rocks! | Reviewer: Larz | 1/13/2005

One of BNL's angrier songs, Upside Down is a deep statement of Steven Page's frustration with relationships, change & trust. Haunting melody, that is delivered with the force of a person who is fed up with people trying to change him from being the person he has built himself to be. Heavy guitars combine with accordion to create a quirky hard pop/rock gem.
