Lyrics

    Getting a little erratic here
    And I don't know who to trust
    I guess they got a way of reading my mind
    I guess I got to adjust
    I got my arms that flip flop flip flop flip
    I got my head on a spring
    Well I thought I got you on my side
    I haven't got fucking anything
    
    I'm just a face in the crowd
    Nothing to worry about
    Not even trying to stand out
    I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
    And I have nothing to say
    It's all been taken away
    I just behave and obey
    I'm afraid I am starting to fade away
    
    Can kind of see out the cracks
    When I press up to the wall
    I'm not looking to stand up real high
    I'd be happy to crawl
    I think I'm losing my grip
    But I can still make a fist
    You know I still got my one good arm
    That I can beat—I can beat myself up with
    
    I'm just a face in the crowd
    Nothing to worry about
    Not even trying to stand out
    I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
    And I have nothing to say
    It's all been taken away
    I just behave and obey
    I'm afraid I am starting to fade away
    
    Hey and for what it is worth
    I really used to believe
    That maybe there's some great thing
    That we could achieve
    And now I can't tell the difference
    Or know what to feel
    Between what I've been trying so hard to see
    And what appears to be real
    
    My world is getting smaller every day
    Hey hey hey hey
    And that's OK
