Lyrics by Michael McManus

Keep yourself in shape and you'll go far
Have diamond rings and fancy cars
If not for yesterday, tomorrow's gone
Close your eyes, now we've begun

See nothing at all wrong
Go out the back way through the rest of the world.

Keep your motives safe, your family far
You wouldn't want them to get hurt.
I opened my ears today, what he said I heard
What makes him think I'm any better?

See nothing at all wrong
Go out the back way through the rest of the world.
The opinionated fly on the wall says you're a mess
And thinks your head's too small

When the day is over,
What have you learned?
