Change

This song is by Oingo Boingo and appears on the album Boingo (1994).

Don't you ever wonder why
Nothing ever seems to change?
If it does it for the worst,
Seems it's just a modern curse.
Sometimes, when I take a peek
Outside of my little cage,
Everyone looks so asleep...
Will they die before they wake?

And, hey... Don't you know? We're just products of our time and...
Hey... what do you say? Show me yours; I'll show you mine...

Better dumb and happy than
Smart and without any friends!
Better cute and better loud;
Better join up with the crowd...
Keep up or be left behind;
There's a dust storm in my mind...
Seems I can't see straight these days:
Doesn't matter, anyway.

And, hey... Don't you know? We're just products of our time and...
Hey... what do you say? Show me yours; I'll show you mine...

Hey... what do you say? Hey... what do you say? Please, don't ever...

Oh, God, here's that question now! The one that makes me go insane!
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never, never, never, never change...

Do you want to change?

Do you want to change right now?

Do you want to change?

I like my stupid life just the way it is,
And I wouldn't even change for a thousand flying pigs!
And I like you... just the way you are.

And I like your face just the way it is,
And I wouldn't even trade for a herd of screaming kids
And I like you... just the way you are.

I like you, though you may not like me back;
I would dazzle you with brilliance, if I only had the knack -
'Cause I like you... just the way you are.

I like this life just the way it is,
And the castles all around me have been melting now for years
And it kills my brain to think of all the time I wasted here:
All the efforts, sweat and broken hearts, the screaming and the tears.

And I'm dreaming again...

Floating in a pool of mud,
Try to get back where I was and I...
Don't really care...

Got a little talking to
By the mirror in my room and I...
Don't really care...

Whispering voices from the dead
Come from underneath my bed and I...
Don't really care...

I like my stupid life just the way it is,
And the chaos that surrounds me like a flock of screaming pigs.
And it hurts my brain to think of all the stupid things I've said...
And if I could change the future I would change the past instead.

And I'm dreaming again... and I'm dreaming again...

Baby... sometimes I worry about you...
Sometimes you're so far away: tell me what to do!
I say, baby... sometimes I worry about you...
Sometimes I just can't believe everything you do...
I say, baby... sometimes I worry about you...
Everyday I feel the same; don't you feel it too?
I say, baby... sometimes I worry about me...
Seems I'm falling down a lot, in-between the scenes...
I say, baby... sometimes I worry about me...
Getting harder all the time, harder now to see...
I say, baby... sometimes I worry about me...
Light another cigarette, have another dream.

It's the same thing every day, nothing ever seems to change and I...

Do you really want to? Really want to?

Hey... what do you say? Hey... what do you say? Please, don't ever...

Testaments and growing pains:
Tranquilizers for the soul.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained -
Evolution's cruelest joke.
Why is everyone upset?
I once knew, but I forget.
Something happened, something strange;
Something it appears has changed.

And, hey... Don't you know? We're just products of our time and...
Hey... what do you say? Show me yours; I'll show you mine...

Hey, what do you say? Hey, what do you say? Please, don't - please!

Oh, God, here's that question now! The one that makes me go insane!
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never change!
Never change!
Never change!
Never change!
Never! Never! Never! Never!
Change...
