Don't you ever wonder why, nothing ever seems to change 
If it does it's for the worse, seems it's just a modern curse 
Sometimes when I take a peek outside of my little cage, 
Everyone looks so asleep, will they die before they wake 

And, hey. . . Don't you know? We're just products of our time and Hey . . . 
What d'ya say? Show me yours, I'll show you mine 

Better dumb and happy than smart and without any friends 
Better cute and better loud, better join up with the crowd 
Keep up or be left behind, there's a dust storm in my mind 
Seems I can't see straight these days, doesn't matter anyway 
Hey . . . Don't you know? We're just products of our times and 
Hey, what d'ya say? Show me yours, I'll show you mine 

Hey, what d'ya say? Hey, what d'ya say? Please don't ever - 
Oh God, here's that question now. The one that makes me go insane 
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never, never, never, never change 

Do you want to change? Do you want to change right now? 
Do you want to change . . . I like my stupid life, just the way it is 
And I wouldn't even change it for a thousand flying pigs 

And I like you just the way you are, I like your face just the way it is 
And I wouldn't even change it for a herd of screaming kids 
And I like you just the way you are, I like you though you may not like me back 
I would dazzle you with brilliance, if I only had the knack 

'Cause I like you just the way you are, I like this life just the way it is 
And the castles all around me, have been melting now for years 
And it kills my brain to think of all the time I wasted here 
All the efforts, sweat, and broken hearts, the screaming and the tears 

And I'm dreaming again . . . Floating in a pool of mud 
Try to get back where I was and I don't really care 

Got a little talking to, by the mirror in my room, and I don't really care . . . 
Whispering voices from the dead, come from underneath my bed 
And I don't really care . . . 

I like my stupid life just the way it is 
And the chaos that surrounds me like a flock of screaming pigs 
And it hurts my brain to think of all the stupid things I've said 
And if I could change the future I would change the past instead 
And I'm dreaming again . . . and I'm dreaming again . . . 

Baby - sometimes I worry about you 
Sometimes you're so far away, tell me what to do 
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about you 
Sometimes I just can't believe everything you do 
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about you 
Every day I feel the same, don't you feel it too 
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about me 
Seems I'm falling down a lot, in between the scenes 
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about me 
Getting harder all the time, harder now to see 
I say, Baby . . . sometimes I worry about me 
Light another cigarette, have another dream 

It's the same thing every day, nothing ever seems to change and I . . . 

Do you really want to change? 
Testaments and growing pains. Tranquilizers for the soul. 
Nothing ventured, nothing gained - evolution's cruelest joke 
Why is everyone upset? I once knew but I forget. Something happened, 
Something strange, something it appears has changed 

Hey . . . Don't you know? We're just products of our times 
And hey, what d'ya say? Show me yours, I'll show you mine 

Hey, what d'ya say? Hey, what d'ya say? Please don't ever - 
Oh God, here's that question now, the one that makes me go insane 
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never, never, never, never change
