Jimmy Eat World - Here It Goes

On, it’s on; I declare my room a scene.
Gone, then gone; it’s too much that they say you need.
It’s not perfection, yeah —
how boring if it is nothing new for me.

Light on up with everybody watching you;
lights go down, everything is yours to lose.
First dancer takes the floor;
laugh, but you can’t ignore what you’re gonna do.

Waiting for attention, I’m not.
Cut it to the left and I rock.
Need an invitation, I don’t.
Slide it to the right and I roll.

Here it goes; the crowning of the cool kid queen.
Here it goes; the competition show their teeth.
I’ll let them fight it out —
it’s just my party, now, what I want to be.

Stand on up; everyone in queue in costume.
Step on out; don’t get sucked in for a second.
Bright lights might say your name, but they only light the stage —
nothing there to prove.

Waiting for attention, I’m not.
Cut it to the left and I rock.
Need an invitation, I don’t.
Slide it to the right and I roll.

Waiting for attention, I’m not.
Cut it to the left and I rock.
Need an invitation, I don’t.
Slide it to the right and I roll.

Hey hey hey hey..
Don’t accept critique or credit.
Hey hey hey hey..
The definition always changes.
It’s not the same as yours;
you could be so much more the closer that you get.


Waiting for attention, I’m not.
Cut it to the left and I rock.
Need an invitation, I don’t.
Slide it to the right and I roll.

Waiting for attention, I’m not.
Cut it to the left and I rock.
Need an invitation, I don’t.
Slide it to the right and I roll.
