lyrics

I wrote a speech today, and in it I said everyone was gonna be OK
I gripped the microphone tight, and I cleared my throat before I sprayed out my lies

I raised my arms above, and accepted the admiration and love, from the crowd
And as I passed through them, their praise was thundering in my ears, but then

Did I say something right? I think so
Did I say something right? I...
Is everything gonna be alright?
No

I'm going to march today, I'm going to march until everything is OK
And as he parades through the crowd, I'll have my chance to say
I'll tell him what I have to say, I'll tell him what I have to say

Did I do something right? I think so
Did I do something right? I...
Is everything gonna be alright?
Is everything gonna be alright?
