You Get What You Give

Lyrics

playOne, two
playOne, two, three

playWake up kids
playWe've got the dreamers disease
playAge fourteen we got you down on your knees
playSo polite, you're busy still saying please
playFrienemies,
playwho when you're down ain't your friend
playEvery night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
playFirst we run,and then we laugh 'til we cry

playBut when the night is falling
playYou cannot find the light
playYou feel your dreams are dying
playHold tight

playYou've got the music in you
playDon't let go
playYou've got the music in you
playOne dance left
playThis world is gonna pull through
playDon't give up
playYou've got a reason to live
playCan't forget
playWe only get what we give

playI'm comin' home baby
playYou're tops,
playGive it to me now

playFour a.m. we ran a miracle mile
playWe're flat broke,
playBut hey we do it in style
playThe bad rich
playGod's flying in for your trial

playBut when the night is falling
playYou cannot find a friend (friend)
playYou feel your tree is breaking
playJust then

playYou've got the music in you
playDon't let go
playYou've got the music in you
playOne dance left
playThis world is gonna pull through
playDon't give up
playYou've got a reason to live
playCan't forget
playWe only get what we give

playThis whole damn world, could fall apart
playYou'll be ok, follow your heart
playYou're in harms way, I'm right behind
playNow say you're mine

playYou've got the music in you
playDon't let go
playYou've got the music in you
playOne dance left
playThis world is gonna pull through
playDon't give up
playYou've got a reason to live
playCan't forget
playWe only get what we give

playDon't let go
playI feel the music in you
playDon't let go
playFly high
playWhat's real, can't die
playYou only get what you give
playYou are gonna get what you give
playDon't give up
playJust don't be afraid to leave

playHealth insurance
playrip off lying FDA big bankers buying
playFake computer crashes dining
playCloning while they're multiplying
playFashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
playCourtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
playYou're all fakes
playRun to your mansions
playCome around
playWe'll kick your ass in

playDon't let go
playOne dance left
playDon't give up
playCan't forget
