  • You know what? I’m in a good mood today
    Well I’m so happy it’s not yesterday
    Man it was brutal, with planning tissues
    I guess you could say that I had issues
    Well it’s looking good, I dug my way out
    I’m changing up what the story’s about

    Chorus:
    When the world stops making sense
    Just take in what you can get
    When the people on the streets start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stops making sense
    I make a new alphabet

    Small thinking people with their small thinking ways
    I don’t have time to hear what they say
    This is my world, I’m seeking my claim
    Thanks for the invite, no thanks just the same
    It’s looking good now, full speed ahead
    I’ll live the day, by tomorrow I’m dead

    Chorus:
    When the world stops making sense
    Just take in what you can get
    When the people on the streets start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stops making sense
    I make a new alphabet

    I see everything, it’s crystal clear
    It’s here!
    You know what? I’m in a good mood today
    Well I’m so happy it’s not yesterday
    Man it was brutal, but it’s all in the past
    It’s good to know that it don’t have to last

    Chorus:
    When the world stops making sense
    Just take in what you can get
    When the people on the streets start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stoṗs making sense
    I make a new alphabet
