When the town fool is a liar and he's preaching to the choir
You've got a lot of explaining that you do
You see, no one likes a quitter. It makes us oh, so bitter
So drop your hat and sit for awhile
Ya see, every now and then again we struggle with our past
We try to stare it in the eye and pray that it won't last
Most questions that get answered they never make much sense
But I decided that I care and I'll get right down to it
And I said: I've stopped sleepin'
I told myself I'd never close my eyes again
I'm not sleepin'
I'm doin' now the best that I can
Well, I like it when you sit and get straight down to it
It suits you more than anyone will admit
Cause there's something in the air and no one seems to care
Nobody will stand up, not even on a dare
It's funny how we fool them with tears behind our smile
So tried and true, we plow right through and hope it's worth the while
Most questions that get answered, they never make much sense
But I decided that I care and I'll get right down to it!
