Lead vocals by tommy shaw

You can't be still
You're such a nervous fellow
Like a yo-yo
Up and down

Take this little pill
And life will be so mellow
You'll feel the world
Start slowing down around

Who's that rushing out the door
Who's not taking any more
Who's been down this road before
Without you

You tell me who's number one
Who's not here
Who's having fun
Who's the one who cares this much
About you

You won't feel the pain
You won't mind the rain
You can be happy all the time
All the time
One dose twice a day
The world will go away
You'll be smiling through
The worst of times
Who's that rushing out the door
Who's not taking any more
Who's been down this road before
Without you

You tell me who's number one
Who's not here
Who's having fun
Who's the one
Who knows so much about you

I believe I belive
There's something more
I believe it's just beyond the door
I believe there's something more
I believe it's just
Beyond the door
I believe there's something
Better out there

Wanna leave this world
So far behind
I can see your face there
In my mind
I believe there's something
Better our there

Who's that rushing
Who's not taking
Who's been down this
You tell me who's
Who's not here who's
Who's the one who

Something better
Something better
Something better
Something better
Something better
