lyrics

Have you ever had a hundred thoughts in a second?
Are you living life the way you'd reckoned?
You walk around with that smile on your face
I want to say that your bubble is a hollow sham

Lighten up, no thanks
Lighten up, no thanks
You say I think too much, well you don't fucking think enough
I'm happy as I am, so lighten up no thanks

Have you ever had a hundred thoughts in second?
I don't think so
Are you living life the way you'd reckoned?
Someone would have told you so
And you've still got that stupid smile on your face
I wanna say that your bubble is a hollow sham

Lighten up, no thanks
I'll tell you where to go
Lighten up, no thanks
I don't think so
You say I think too much, well you don't fucking think enough
I'm happy as I am, so lighten up no thanks

You're the happiness fascists, you're telling people what to think
But what the hell would you know, you're no good at being a cynic
And I shouldn't have to tell you all the things that I'm aware about
I'm living life, because I know the things I really care about
One more time!
One more time
One more time, lighten up no thanks
