Mix it up, mix it up Think about illumination Dream the dream and then awaken Mix it up, mix it up Dream the dream and then awaken Think about illumination Mix it up, mix it up The only fate is the one that we're making Unrelenting determination Traveling some road not taken Mix it up, mix it up The only fate is the one that we're making Hey hey yeah yeah Side by side (Believe) One by one (Become) We believe (Believe) And we become (Become) You and I (Become) Plant the seeds (Believe) We become (Become) What we believe (Believe) Beg forgiveness, don't ask permission There's no doubting this deep conviction Mix it up, mix it up Reality - stranger than fiction Find the truth in these premonitions Just a spark can start the ignition Mix it up, mix it up Hey hey yeah yeah

On the way to work you spilled your coffee On your clean white shirt You forgot your presentation And the boss has been a jerk So you're stopping for a cold one And you'll be out the door And it's one, two, three, maybe more It's just one of those days when you've gone too far It won't end well, you can tell you're getting burned So you go with the flow cuz there's nowhere else to go And then you find You've crossed the line Past the pint of no return It's getting late and you should get some rest now To face another day Maybe you'll have a little nightcap To send you on your way You'll just stay up a little longer Then you'll get some sleep for sure Then it's one, two, three, maybe four You'll pay the price For every pour Such is life So maybe just one more

Seems so easy Just shed your skin Change the scenery And start again Seems so easy To leave it all behind 'Til you feel the pull Of the rising tide And then you're walking in your sleep On an old familiar street And now you're walking in your sleep Oh Just takes a minute To fall back in it That handsome mess you made Oh Just wait a minute When nothing changes Then nothing can ever be the same Seems so simple Just walk away Break the habit Today's the day Seems so simple To leave it all behind But is it really you Or just a thin disguise And then you're walking in your sleep World at your feet Promises to keep So bitter and so sweet Desperate to taste Familiarity And now you're walking in your sleep

I don't want to think about you 'cause it's all just wasted time I've got to do something to get you off my mind 'Cause even though I want so much to fill this empty space I'd rather go hungry than just get a little taste So I'm driving in my car Watching the world roll past Got no destination Just an empty bottle in the back And it's all right to be going nowhere fast This ain't the first time and it sure won't be the last You know I really want to call you but I just pick up my guitar instead 'Cause the phone feels like a loaded gun when I put it to my head There's no telling what I'd say if I talked to you right now So it's better just to get away find a way to get by somehow So I'm riding in my car Watching the world roll past Got no hesitation Just an empty bottle in the back And it's all right to be going nowhere fast This ain't the first time and it sure won't be the last

Woke up this morning wondering what you were still doing here After all your travels far and wide Now you know the grass is greener on the other side So welcome to the party We're blazing a brand new trail Keep rollin', keep rollin' Spark the revolution on a global scale Sticky sweet token treat took you on a little trip Through the stratosphere and back to life (and now it's time to) Get your mojo risin' now that you've arrived There's a fundamental problem with the situation here As they light up a smoke and have themselves another beer Scraping up change for the cigarette machine Getting drunk on their junk and believing they're clean But you see their philosophy lacks reason and rhyme So symptomatic of another anesthetized mind Senses are dumb, mind's eye is blind Got to open the doors to see what's inside Come on! There's a fire if you will light it You can feel it, don't try to fight it Your eyes are closed now, but you can still see Because you've been there behind the smokescreen

Trapped in traffic and a business suit Air's running out, there's no room to move, and All this idle time Is preying on my mind The shortcuts seem to take me twice as long Decisions that I make all turn out wrong Things fall through somehow I'm never where I thought I would be by now, but When I think about it I have to laugh Good and bad, pleasure and pain When I think about it I have to laugh 'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane No one seems to want to question why We live and we work and we love and we die So we bide our time in fear Of answers we don't want to hear, and Survival is the daily drug Lets us sweep the big questions under the rug No time for philosophy While misery needs company, and When I think about it I have to laugh Nothing is fair and it won't ever change When I think about it I have to laugh 'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane See the road up ahead choked with minivans While I'm stuck in the back with my simple demands I wrote a letter to my congressman But he won't respond, I don't understand Why nothing ever turns out the way I planned My ex-girlfriends married millionaires I'm flat broke but no one really cares I ain't got a f#ckin'' dime I can only afford to spend my time, and When I think about it I have to laugh Nothing is fair and it won't ever change When I think about it I have to laugh 'Cause if I don't start laughing I think I'll start crying If I don't start laughing I might just give up trying If I don't start laughing I'll go insane (ha ha ha ha)

I know the script I've memorized my lines I play the part I sleepwalk with open eyes Pretending that I believe what I know deep down are lies I 'm on the stage Standing in the spotlight I hide my rage But I won't give up without a fight I’ve got to make you believe that you’re so wrong and I’m so right There’s a smile on my face as I’m selling you lies Is the mask that I wear leaving you hypnotized Here's a shoulder to cry on, my heart’s on a sleeve Now the show has begun so suspend your disbelief So here we are Marionettes on our strings Waiting for the show to end but somehow The fat lady never sings She just juggles chain saws while we're crawling toward the wings credits
