Houston, we have a problem
All this TV has made us dumb
Anxious is what we’ve become
Too much prozac in our systems
It’s our mental condition
It’s our mental condition
One thing lacks is education
Institutions f*ck with our

Emotions are elastic
They stretch out and back
Stretch out and back
Sometimes they just snap
They don’t go back
They never go back

What if it were true
That you weren’t so blue
And you felt like you
Could just do anything
But we’re facing the sunset
And for a moment it
Looks like it’s rising
And we are on the other side of things

There’s no procrastination maybe I should do it get to it straight
I see people wasting time with so much pointless debate
I can’t wait for the over analytical politically correct
Upset by threats to the national mindset
I bet we’d let reverse psychology mob mentality over our ecology
A college we could learn but we usually we burn and then we waste it
Taste it time and time again it’s time to take your medicine
Emotions are elastic
They stretch out and back
Stretch out and back
Sometimes they just snap
They don’t go back
They never go back

What if it were true
That you weren’t so blue
And you felt like you
Could just do anything
But we’re facing the sunset
And for a moment it
Looks like it’s rising
And we are on the other side of things

What if it were true
That you weren’t so blue
And you felt like you
Could just do anything
But we’re facing the sunset
And for a moment it
Looks like it’s rising
And we are on the other side of things
Side of things
