The Lyrics

I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes
-And-
I certainly haven't been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot, it's a slow climb,
But I'm good at being uncomfortable, so
I can't stop changing all the time

I notice that my opponent is always on the go
-And-
Won't go slow, so's not to focus, and I notice
He'll going to do a live event show for rights
They go fast from whence he came
- But he's no good at being the greatest event, so
He can't stop staying exactly the same

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the event just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm the greatest event ever

I seem to you to seek a big event every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way, and say,
I've been getting along for long before you came into the play

I am the gathering of the family, it happens, so
- Everybody cares and wears the actors' clothes
While they chaperone
Curious, you looking down your nose at me, while you appease
- Courteous, to try and help - but let me set your
Mind at ease

(Chorus)

-Do I so worry you, you need to hurry to my side?
-It's very kind
But it's to no avail; I want the concert
I promise you, everything will be just fine

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the event just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm the greatest event ever
