you, you think its cool to be crazy
i say "you want risks? take risks."
there's no point in taking chances

and me, i wouldn't call it a sophomore slump
no i'd say I’m one step closer to bein' just where I want to be

away from this scene
away from this machine
alright

so meet me in the middle
well come on let's make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

step one:
find a partner, grab a pen
and don't you dare ask questions just sign on the dotted line

well, step two-oo-oo:
put your partner behind a desk
where they'll do absolutely nothing
so its your job to dance and smile
the whole time

well don't call it a trend
'cause it's the only way we think to get ahead

so meet me in the middle
well come on lets make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

it's no sense in complaining
if it doesn't change our minds
well take me by the hand let's compromise

i can feel your feet touching mine
if you can't dance, there's someone else in line

so meet me in the middle
well come on let's make up a dance
and we'll agree to call it the compromise

there's no sense in complaining
if it doesn't change our minds
well take me by the hand let's compromise
