I'm not following your frame of mind
Complaining about this life all the time
Surely something good here
As the world spins by
Could you please stop being so mean

This will never work out
That's what you say
It's the end of the world
Again yesterday
When I see you coming at me
I'm gonna walk away
You need to stop being so mean

Your outlook is haunting us all
Like the ghost of our love
Down at the dark end of the hall
If you can't say nothing good
Then don't say nothing at all
And you need to stop being so mean

Your road seems so narrow to me
You're a big boat up the river
Blowing off steam
My head is spinning from your company
Could you please stop being so mean

I'm not following your frame of mind
Complaining about this life all the time
Surely something good here
As the world spins by
Could you please just stop being so mean
