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

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
