lyrics

What happens to the song no one hears
will it come back again in a few hundred years
they try to counter your fears
as the song passes by silently in the night

what will happen to the song no one hears
will it echo in pieces, be sung by the steers
will we recognize that something was lost
when we base what we love on a profit and cost

the song knows that it won't be heard
(it won't, it won't the song will not be heard)

some say it chose not to be heard
(does not, does not, does not want to be heard)

there are those who know it's absurd

it got tired of trying to be someone's sign

Everybody's waiting to be told what to do
by a bionic hero with a gigantic show
everybody's waiting for a little birdie to recover the myriad treasures of youth

everybody's got their heart locked in a box
where they keep their favorite cartoon

everybody's waiting for the one with the key
with a smile for a mile
and the style to beguile

*chorus*

Everybody likes the same things
everybody looks the same
everybody likes who they are
everybody's clean and sane

everybody walks to the beat that they hear in their heart
everybody can't wait to finish so the next one can start

everybody believes in god everybody's scared of hell
everybody wears the same scar from that one time we fell
everybody thinks this is fun everybody thinks this is dumb
everybody thinks this is fun precisely because it's so dumb

*chorus*
