You don't know me, but here I am in your living room, you don't own me, but you paid and that means a lot to you, well, you never listen, but I know that's what you think that you do, and everybody wants a change, but this time it'll be the same, watch us go down in flames



Its all right, it's ok, it was gonna happen anyway, we had our chance, we made our point, but you're not gonna take that



Radio, commercials, tv shows, and front page ads, photos, and interviews, they'll make sure it's the latest fad, pay attention, 'cause you know you'll have to pay either way, and they tell you that it's the new thing, but we know that it hasn't changed, watch us go down in flames



It's all right, it's ok, it was gonna happen anyway, we had our chance, we made our point, but you're not going take that away



When this blows over, and the main stream coughs up another shell, will you let us back in your underground, well I guess that's a no, and it's just as well, 'cause you never supported us, all you wanted was to see us fail, and they tell me that it's the new thing, so I better get out of the way, watch us go down in flames



It's all right, it's ok, it was going to happen anyway, we had our chance, we made our point, and you're not gonna take that, it's all right, it's ok, it was gonna happen anyway, we had our chance, we made our point, you're not gonna take that away, you're not gonna take that away, you're not gonna take that away, you're not gonna take that away
