The Get Up Kids – Second Place lyrics

It's been proven, hundreds over since,
The decision was the best that we could make.
If I wasn't clear enough before
That's not what I said,
And I bent over backwards just to speak.
If you've got things straight in your head
Then you've got bigger problems than me.
I'll send you straight to your room
Until you calm down,
Until you're thought through what you want to say.
This isn't me,
As much as it may seem
And you're still thinking
That's not what I said
And I bent over backwards just to speak.
If you won't let sleeping dogs die
Then I'm giving up on this one.
