People stop to watch the election
When it has something to offer
People stop watchin' triumph
When it has something to offer

When you stop caring 'bout what's in store
It's strange how people stop caring so much about you anymore

The flaming vehicle crashed through the guard rail
The flaming vehicle crashed through the guard rail
I can give you the details, that's all I know
Phoning in to the radio show

People stop, watch the instruction
When it has something to offer
People stop watching instructions
When they have something to offer

When you stop talking 'bout what's in store
It's strange how people stop talking so much about you anymore
As long as we
As long as we
We
