Forget about Norman, small town Rockwell,
Scenes of simple life.
Forget about savings and poignant phrasings,
Cigarettes and schoolyard fights.
Let us out now, Lord of our speed and fancy,
Of our, "can you hear me" now's and our techno loves.

Drop us off on 55th and keep us reading Vonnegut,
And point out now what we're careless of.
My chance in life is worth letting go of all the trends,
They're setting so, forgive me,
If I'm so ordinary, with extraordinary reasons to live.

It's just like a boy, to save his honor and his money,
It's just like a girl, to feel.
It's just like a child, to stand and interrupt us all,
And say, "I'll gladly take the fall for you."

Now, love, love, love, yes, it's all you need,
John and Paul Ringo George professed;
If I've got love, I can feel, I can remember every meal.
But, like a gift, it can be taken all away.
My chance in life is worth letting go of all the trends,
They're setting, so, forgive me,
If I'm so ordinary, with extraordinary reasons to live.

It's just like a boy, to save his honor and his money,
It's just like a girl, to feel.
It's just like a child, to stand and interrupt us all,
And say, "I'll gladly take the fall for you."

I'll gladly take the fall for you.
