Learn to lose, it's easier that way.
We've paid our dues, but we can't make life pay.
All across the world, people going mad,
In their mother's cars, the kids are feeling sad.
That's how it is, and I'll see you later

Everything old is new again, everything under the sun.
Now that I'm back with you again,
We hug and we kiss, we sit and make lists,
We drink and I bandage your wrists.

Wasted youth, there wasn't much to waste.
Down to the bone, and still losing weight.
With all the wishing in the world glistening in her eyes,
But when I say I love her, she thinks I'm telling lies.
Is it all lost? No, we never had it.

Everything old is new again, everything under the sun.
All of our fears come true again.
Recycle, reuse, resent and refuse,
Our parent's ideals and views.

She thinks the afterlife might just be where the action is.
With high schools built like prisons, she can't find a way to live

Moved back home to fill the empty nest.
Afraid to roam, in love with second best.
While somewhere in the world, she's hosting her own show.
Everyone she questions never seems to know,
Just who they are and where they are going

Everything old is new again, everything under the sun.
Now that I'm without you again.
I wake up and eat, I go back to sleep,
And let all my nightmares repeat.

All across the world, people going mad
