You put yourself in stupid places Yes I think you know it's true Situations where it's easy to look down on you I think you like to be the victim I think you like to be in pain I think you make yourself a victim Almost every single day
[Chorus] You do what you do You say what you say You try to be everything to everyone You know all the right people You play all the right games You always try to be Everything to everyone
Yeah you do it again You always do it again
You say they taught you how to read and write They taught you how to count I say they taught you how to buy and sell Your own body by the pound I think you like to be their simple toy I think you love to play the clown I think you are blind to the fact That the hand you hold Is the hand that holds you down
Spin around and fall down Do it again You stumble and you fall Yeah why won't you ever learn Spin around and fall down Do it again You stumble and you fall I wonder if you will ever learn
Why won't you ever learn
Come on now Do that stupid dance for me
You do what they tell you to do You say what they say You try to be everything to everyone
You jump through the big hoop You play all the right games You try to be Everything to everyone
Spin around and fall down Do it again You stumble and you fall Yeah you do it again Spin around and fall down Do it again You stumble and you fall

Holly from Boothbay, MeI love that line, too, Leon from Waterbury, CT. This song can describe someone in everyone's life. That's what makes this a good song -- it's catchy, but more importantly, a really good song, almost anyone can relate to it, in a variety of ways.
I actually saw Everclear live in the Cabin Fever tour, in La Crosse, Wisconsin at the La Crosse Center. I even got to meet Art and got his autograph and I got to go on stage for the Jenny act. I love Everclear!
