Lyrics:
(From November 26, 2000 version)

Me, I hope that I'm crazy
I feel you driving and you're only the wheel
Slow down, let someone love you
I've never touched you 'til I started to feel
If there's nothing to hide me
Then you've never seen me naked and wired
Ah somebody lied and I think it's hip to be alive

Now your smile is wearing thin
Seems you're trying not to lose
Since I'm not supposed to grin
All you've got to do is win

Me, I'm fresh on your pages
A secret thinker sometimes listening aloud
Life lies dumb on its heroes
Wear your wound with honor
Make someone proud
Someone like you should not be allowed
To start any fires

Now your smile is wearing thin
Seems you're trying not to lose
Since I'm not supposed to grin
All you've got to do is win

Now your smile is wearing thin
Seems you're trying not to lose
Since I'm not supposed to grin
All you've got to do is win
