lyrics

Wake up in the morning,
The sunlight through my awning,
Pulls me yawning, scratching,
From my dreams,
Do what they need me to,
Follow where they lead me to,
I'm just a cog in their machine.

And if one cog falls,
The whole machine will come,
Crashing to the ground.
It's all fine,
I'm still on time,
But what's that hissing sound?!

It's just a tragedy,
Hidden behind a happy melody,
Can't you see?
Things aren't always what they seem,
Hidden behind a happy melody,
I'm starting to see a theme.

I have always been taught,
Happiness can't be bought,
But mine comes in packs of 28.
Worked hard for a while,
Trying to earn that smile,
But I'm sick and tired of having to wait.

This skin ain't sitting right on me,
I guess it isn't mine,
I'm not the man I'm meant to be,
But I'm running out of time.

Ain't it funny?
If time is money,
Then I just want some change.
With friends like these,
My enemies,
Are making me feel strange.

It's just a tragedy,
Hidden behind a happy melody,
Can't you see?
Things aren't always...

I can't move, you know they got me bound,
Try to scream but I don't make a sound,
Take my hand because I'm going down!
I'm going down! I'm going down! I said,

Take my hand because I'm going down!
I'm going down!
I'm going down! Going down...

(Tragedy,Tragedy,
Tragedy,Tragedy)

It's just a tragedy,
Hidden behind a happy melody,
Can't you see?
Things aren't always what they seem,
Tragedy
Hidden behind a happy melody,
Please, for me,
Listen close, up my dose,
Hidden behind a happy melody,
I'm starting to see a theme!
