  • Nothing feels right
    But my fake smiles paint pictures like everything's fine
    Sheep like what they're told
    So they've got spindles spinning bad songs into gold

    And who decides what's wrong or right to like?

    When the puzzle pieces twist
    And seem like they won't fit their match
    And I'll be waiting, I'll be waiting
    And all the best songs what's the best about 'em?

    I thought I was part of something more
    But more money, less substance, more demand
    I've heard great songs that no one understands
    You can't lay brick on wet cement or build castles out of sand

    But who decides?

    But when the puzzle pieces twist
    And seem like they won't fit their match
    Then I will try and try again
    And hope that someone understands
    I'll be waiting, I'll be waiting

    And they can say they love you
    But it still won't change a thing
    'Cause the tides may turn tomorrow
    And I won't be there to look

    And I can say
    I've got to say
    Dollar by dollar, your soul gets smaller
    Trending what we fought to make ours

    And they don't care about
    They don't care
    It's a good thing bad trends fade away
    It's so much cooler in the shade

    And they don't care about
    They don't care
    We give in nightly to our addiction
    A self-afflicted public crucifixion

    They don't care about
    And they don't care
    Dollar by dollar, your soul gets smaller
    Trending what we fought to make ours

    They don't care about
    They don't care about
    They don't care
    They never cared
