Is the bakery baking bread all night long? Is the fakery painting smiles on the principal? Hey I can breathe all the things I see! Hey I believe that all the fun I’ve had can be put in a bag and manufactured What takes you back to the office: It must be something that you just need to do It must be something you ought to Takes you away from the things that you call blue When the receptionist sings a song, Is it wrong? Is your occupation fun: reading poetry? Hey, maybe yeah. Signing autographs... Hey, you would know. Through all the thick and thin: I’ve been fat, I’ve been thin, I’ve been skinny yeah What takes you back to the office It must be something that you just need to do It must be something you ought to Takes you away from the things that you call blue in the paper it says yes in the bible it says no on the TV maybe so and the neighbours they won’t go and the bible: it says no... the relationship I’m in is only to justify... all the buildings I’ve lived in have all been identified What takes me back to the office It must be something that I just need to do Could this be something I ought to do? Takes me away from the things that hurt me too

Stop looking back it's over and out and I'm tryin' to get on with my life Stop coming around It's breaking the rules just to see me! Saw you just the other day with the braids in your hair on your bicycle moving the air Of all the things we loved to do, well we over did this but we never did that quite enough Sliding down the waterslides into oceans of fun and disaster my open-ended good-byes my open-ended good-byes Stop looking back it's over and out and I'm tryin' to get on with my life Stop coming around It's breaking the rules just to see me and I do miss you too, oh believe me, It's not easy I'm not looking back I'm walking ahead into my future Stumbling on a memory of the man in the box with his briefcase punching the clock You had to make a better plan 'cause you lost money here and you lost money playing your songs I'm throwing out the almanacs and the photos of you and me my open-ended good-byes is finally just a good-bye Stop looking back it's over and out and I'm tryin' to get on with my life Stop coming around It's breaking the rules just to see me and I do miss you too, oh believe me, It's not easy I'm not looking back I'm walking ahead into my future Stop looking back!

In the gymnasium where girls complain about the boy with the concrete shoes if they only knew that what he's been dwelling on is: 'who will laugh the last?' And in our neighborhood the dogs bark from the hallucinogenic bark what we will encounter next is 'all too much, too soon' And so we keep searching for something to play I'm sure it's not only for children that way Do you remember the time when the woman you loved was beginning to bore you to death? Do you move on really fast or spend your time recalling every past? As a Canadian in baseball shorts making black & white movie-shorts Will it be understood you tried to 'live your life out loud' !? And so we keep searching for something to play I'm sure it's not only for children that way and so we keep searching for a brand new game I know it's not exclusively for children that way Take every single thing I've been trying to say Put it in a little box on the dock of the bay Stop messing up my plans for my wedding day Stop breaking me in half when I'm half way there! And so we keep searching for something to play I'm sure it's not only for children that way and so we keep searching for a brand new game I know it's not exclusively for children that way

See the pretty girl sitting on a pedestal she is polishing her nails, pays attention to details Is she thinking to herself that she's not for me! I'm a lonely guy who's been sitting on a shelf I've been thinking 'bout my health, I've been cooking for myself but I think I'd rather die if I'm not for her! When you look into my house you may see chaos in my room but if you look into my heart, you'll see I made some room for you! Shauna, I told you that I like you I told you that I love you Do you love me too? Buzzing in my tree, you're my favourite bumblebee got me spinning round and round and I'm lifting off the ground gotta take it day by day, can't wait till Monday! Whatever I can do to get a bit closer to you I got a pocket full of goodies, got a ticket to the movies gonna spend it all on you and me 'cause nothing comes for free when you look into my eyes you may see desperate lonely skies but if you take me by the hand I'll take you to our promised land above Shauna, I told you that I like you I told you that I love you Do you love me too? You're moving up, you're moving up into my heart's attic! whatever makes me cry, really makes me cry, I'm such a fanatic! Shauna, I told you that I like you I told you that I love you Do you love me too?

And now I finally got some hair under my armpits think I can take responsibility I've lived too long inside the dreams of other people's heads a public figure hitting puberty Trust me when I tell ya 'cause I know I'm never envious of all the famous people with their money and their selfishness I missed out on a lot always waiting for 'next shot' If you ask me someday honestly I'll tell ya what's been killing me... I KNOW YOU KNOW WHY I'M SO UNHEALTHY I SPENT MY YOUTH IN THE BACK OF A LIMOUSINE I wish I went to school like everybody else did 'Can't you just treat me like a normal kid?' They've got some notes written down for my next biography Have a big plan on how to market me Always when they tell me I should change my style I do it 'cause I'm always lost for words when I'm expected to be into it I won't know what to do when you stop pushing me through My connection to the world was only made with paper glue I KNOW YOU KNOW WHY I'M SO UNHEALTHY I SPENT MY YOUTH IN THE EYES OF AMERICA 'I don't know where to go from here...Oh no!' I KNOW YOU KNOW WHY I'M SO UNHEALTHY I SPENT MY YOUTH ON THE FRONT OF MAGAZINE SO WHY YA ALWAYS ASKING ME QUESTIONS OF WORLD HISTORY THE NEWS OF THE WORLD YOU SEE IS NO BLOODY NEWS TO ME

From your nose to your toes (And overhills) Exploring landmarks: Lips, chin, neck, shoulders, elbow, fingers curve round hipbones down the Valley From your home to the store And overworried by the sore spots in people's thoughts By the mistakes that you would make whenever: You had your mind on the money From the brain to the hand (And in between) Comes the truth: A lonely man begins to paint the picture of a broken building From Brazil to Japan (The hurricane) And earthquakes too Without a warning sign, what came was now or never Can't we employ the boy with the x-ray glasses? It's true for most of us...candles on birthday cakes And its true for most of us...you look like your mommy and daddy It's hard for some of us...kissing in public places It's true for most of us...what..you...did...after school

Breakfast in the morning, Coffee tea or me? A diamond in the bushes Take your rocket to the tip of my world. I’m sorry a rain check is all that I have, But hey, call me. A tablespoon of cookies A tablespoon of milk A ton of invitations Now I’m talking like I’m king of the world Now you’ve got your cake Your better savor each flavor, Bit by bit by bit Why did I do what I did? Didn’t mean what I said Should have gone straight to bed, Can’t be bothered with Why did I do what I did? Didn’t mean what I said All the things I regret Keep on asking A stolen pair of antlers I put in on my head I walk past all the neighbours Now there’s probably not a chance in the world That we’ll ever barbeque again Why did I do what I did? Didn’t mean what I said Should have gone straight to bed Can’t be bothered with Why did I do what I did? Didn’t mean what I said All the things I regret keep on asking me Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
