Fitting In

lyrics

Our heads are deserted places
where knowledge goes to die
Our absurd, familiar faces
always look surprised
We swallow and regurgitate
until we lose our minds
Then it's finders keepers
losers weepers
though, there won't be much to find

This is the way to go
Fall into line or fall to pieces
This is the status-quo
we never bite the hand that feeds us
This is the way we blend
into the crowd so no one sees us
This is the way to go
Learn to follow

Our heads make a cemetery
where bad ideas find rest
The mourners are all young and very
fashionably dressed
Whether they have reason to lose is
anybody's guess
It finder's keepers
losers weepers
though there won't be much left

This is the way to go
Fall into line or fall to pieces
This is the status-quo
we never bite the hand that feeds us
This is the way we blend
into the crowd so no one sees us
This is the way to go
Learn to follow

Step out of the light and over here
Step out of the light and disappear
Get back into line and join the throng
Get back into line where you belong
This is the way to go
This is the way to go
