Overkill, have you had your fill
Off the wall, too short or too tall
Lost the handle, what's it all been for?

Just crank 'em out on the assembly line and chart 'em higher (higher, higher)
Mainstream, are we moving too far away
The centerline is status quo, it's

You'll remain among the chosen few

Media saturation
Sensory deprivation
No one's buying your experiment
It's so predictable and everybody judges by the numbers that you're selling
Just keep it simple boys it's gonna be alright as long as you're inside the
Is it worth it if it doesn't pay
Mainstream
For the masses in Consumerland
Survive another year
Corporate mold, packaged and sold, 16 to 30
Tactics are dirty
Profit motive, welcome to the war
It's so predictable and everybody judges by the numbers that you're selling
Just keep it simple boys it's gonna be alright as long as you're inside the
Is it worth it if it doesn't pay
Mainstream
Just be careful not to rearrange
Survive another year
