  • Everything's fine for now, no one's really laughing
    Everything's just all right, or is it now
    ? up to the round, but keep moving on
    You can cut the cord now, just dragging along

    Now there's too many people trying too hard
    Not to be outdone
    They follow close behind their proud smoking gun

    It's up to you and me whether to pay them any mind
    Some people turn to tomorrow, and some, a bottle of wine
    Remember back when there could be no wrong
    It's different for everyone until it's gone

    Now there's too many people trying too hard
    Not to be outdone
    They follow close behind their proud smoking gun

    Things are breaking down
    Not that stuff
    Think it over again

    Dreams come and go, and one thing remains
    In the back of your mind, it won't go away
    Saying, "take a look around and tell me everything's just fine
    From what I can see now, we'd be fools or lying"

    Now there's too many people trying too hard
    Not to be outdone
    They follow close behind their proud smoking gun

    They say take your leave from the common view
    First look around past the college grounds
    Were people aware of more than themselves, they'd care
