Down In Flames

This song is by Reel Big Fish and appears on the album Why Do They Rock So Hard (1998).

Well you don't know me,
But here I am in your living room.
You don't own me,
But you paid and that means a lot to you.
Well You never listen,
But I know that's what you think that you do (that you do).
Yeah, everybody wants to change,
But this time it'll be the same - watch us go down in flames.

It's all right, it's okay, it was gonna happen anyway.
We had our chance, we made our point,
But you're not gonna take that ...

Radio commercials, TV shows, and front-page ads,
Photos and interviews, well they'll make sure it's the latest fad.
Well Pay attention,
'Cause you know you'll have to pay either way (either way).
And they'll tell you that it's the new thing,
But we know that it hasn't changed - watch us go down in flames.

It's all right, it's okay, it was gonna happen anyway.
We had our chance, we made our point,
But you're not gonna take that ...
Away (x4)

When this blows over,
And the mainstream coughs up another shell,
Will you let us back in your underground?
Well I guess that's a 'no' and it's just as well,
'Cause you never supported us,
All you wanted was to see us fail (see us fail).

And they tell me that it's the new thing,
So I better get out of the way - watch us go down in flames.

It's all right, it's okay, it was gonna happen anyway.
We had our chance, we made our point,
But you're not gonna gonna take that... (x2)
Away.
You're not gonna gonna take that ... away.
Not gonna gonna take that ... away.
You're not gonna gonna take that ... away.
