I wish I could, innovate,
And try to stretch your minds,
Cause often times, when guys like me,
Do that they leave themselves behind,
To clean a mess, or to impress,
A little bit of everyone,
But to innovate, is a mistake,
Cause there's nothing new under the sun.

[Bridge]
Cause we're all getting tired of the media,
Cause it tries too hard to make you like something,
Cause we're all getting tired of the media,
Cause creating something new is just recycling,

[Chorus]
Wit, wit's all been done before,
Yeah we do something to death,
Then we dig it up just to do it some more.

In all my lines of warning signs,
But not all with dead ends,
And I'm not sure if the clever words,
Will sit well with my friends,
But I will not just sit and watch,
And me the victim fall,
I'll just have to do,
What my gut tells me to,
And hope that you will buy it all.

[Bridge]

[Chorus: x2]

Originality is a ghost town,
And it's oh so hard to get to,
And when you do, then people start to hate you,
You scream what you believe out loud in a crowd,
And they will hate you,
Cause repetition's just so safe,
And repetition's just like prison,
And I prefer to be out of place,
Cause I'm not really into prison.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Chorus: x2]
