We used to walk inthe sun with our heads held up high
We used to stand on our own and we never asked why
We used to do everything we were told not to do
But now we all stand in line like the rest of them do

CHORUS
And now it's gone gone gone
Tell me when did things go so wrong

We used to laugh in their face at the things that they said
And if we had to be them, then we'd rather be dead
And now we all stand in line like the rest of them do
We let it all slip away, tell me what did we do?

CHORUS

All right-yeah

CHORUS

We used to walk in the sun with our heads held up high
We used to stand on our own and we never asked why
We used to do everything we were told not to do
But now we all stand in line like the rest of them do

CHORUS
