Could be everywhere you've been
Falling somewhere in between
The lines from place to place

Could be everything you see
In this tragic comedy
Of smiles without a face

I've walked every inch of your town
I've loved every sight, every sound
While you stand in one place
And just watch as the world goes around

First you're here and then you're gone
Hey, whatever turns you on
Whatever makes you smile

It's World War III down on the street
The pills don't quite get you to sleep
But you're doing it in style

While everyone is left facing the sun
And they're all waiting
For the thing to explode

And I've walked every inch of their town
I've loved every sight, every sound
While they stand in one place
And just watch as the world goes around

We all can stand in one place
And just watch as the world goes around
