What shut you down
Where have you been
I know it's the dumbest scene
It's the one I'm in
So many compromises
So many sacrifices
Do what you wanna do
Don't you be alright for me

I'll be alright today
The dumbest on parade

How can we leave this world
Where would we go
I know it's the dumbest scene
But we all want more
So many compromises
So many sacrifices
Do what you wanna do
Don't you be alright for me

I'll be alright today
The dumbest on parade

I'll never let you let me down
I'll always be at home with you

Please don't shut down
Where would I go
I know it's the dumbest scene
But I want more
So many compromises
So many sacrifices
Do what you need to do
It's alright with me

I'll be alright today
The dumbest on parade
