When you won't go along 
Some will feel like you can't find your way
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I've seen it all before
Now don't get me wrong
I've seen many a life gone astray
When someone goes
All your bows won't make it any better so let it go

Shut up and take it like a man
You need us to get a life
For your own good we'll take you by the hand
'Cause you need a little more

Maybe no one will say it
Maybe no one's aware it goes on
All I know
All I know it's like going off the deep end
Could you make a decision?
Could you think for yourself and go on?
Everyone knows
Everyone knows you've got to fit into the mainstream so save your woes


Close your eyes
Look away now
Make believe while you can
So you'd best go along
Don't let on if you can't find your way 
Many more
Many more do it for you
Because heaven knows
Heaven knows it's like playing with fire
Your life's a throw
