Well I saw fireworks from the freeway
And behind closed eyes I cannot make 'em go away
'Cause you were born on the 4th of July, freedom ring
Well somethin' on the surface, it stings
I said somethin' on the surface, well it kinda makes me nervous
To say that you deserve this and
What kind of God would serve this?
We will cure this dirty ol' disease
Well, if you gots the poison, I gots the remedy

The Remedy is the experience
This is a dangerous liason
I says the comedy is that it's serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothin' in the end

I - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)
I - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)

Well I heard two men talkin' on the radio,
In a cross-fire kind of new reality show
Uncovering the ways to plan the next a-big attack
Well they were countin' down the ways to stab the brother in the
Be right back after this: The unavoidable kiss
Where the minty-fresh death breath is sure to outlast this catastrophe
Dance with me
'Cause if you gots the poison, I gots the remedy

The Remedy is the experience
This is a dangerous liason
I says the comedy is that it's serious
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothin' in the end

I - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)
(I won't, I won't, I won't)
I - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)

When I fall in love
I take my time
There's no need to hurry when I'm makin' up my mind
You can turn off the sun
But I'm still gonna shine
And I'll tell you why

'Cause the Remedy is the experience
This is a dangerous liason
I says the comedy is that it's serious
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothin' in the end.

I (I won't) - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)
(I won't, I won't, I won't)
I - I won't worry my life away (I won't worry my life)

I (I won't) - I won't worry my life away (no)
('Cause I won't, and I won't, and I-I won't)
I - I won't worry my life away (hey, oh-oh)

I - I won't worry my life away
(I won't, I won't, I won't)
