Did you ever stop to notice
It's when you feel a little low
That the entire spinning universe
Descends to say hello
With heavy-handed cheerfulness
And a calculated smile and says
'Carry me awhile'
But you don't have to carry
Much of anything at all
The biggest thoughts of bigger things
Are really pretty small
The major thoughts that occupy the minor state of mind
Are what we leave behind
Just a minor thought that we can leave behind

Don't worry 'bout the future, you can't afford the price
There's madness to the method when you pay the piper
Twice once when you start to worry
Once again when you begin to take the future on the
Chin I know that you think worry is your ever-faithful
Friend cuz nothin' that you worry over ever happens in the
End and there might be somethin' to it
But it sure gets in the way of fun today
What you say we try and have some fun today

It takes a sense of balance on this tiny little ball
With a tiny mind still big enought to think about it all
To realize the size of things is just a state of mind
And you can change your mind
There's a riddle in the middle of that univeral spin
But we're out here on the edges where it gets a little thin
So just for once permit yourself a carefree little grin
From the outside lookin' in
Cuz we're out here on the outside lookin' in
And it's better on the outside lookin' in
