If you could see yourself the way that I do
You might change a thing or two
You wouldn't look so angry
You'd know it doesn't look good on you

So grab your coat and grab your hat
There ain't no saying if we're coming back

Cause' something's gone
So terribly wrong
Here in Pleasantville

Do you remember, how we'd stay out so late?
We used to have so much fun
We used to wish that the mornin' sun
Just wouldn't ever come

But look at us now, we're tucked in tight
We're just praying for a little light

Cause' something's gone
So terribly wrong
Here in Pleasantville

I need to tell you now as we leave
That it's much worse than you would believe
And no matter how far you think you've been
The beginning, well that's where you are
So I'm usin' my last match
I put a fire up on every hill and burn down Pleasantville

We never did learn how to use our voices
We never thought that we'd be heard
The only way they to ever listen
Is if we scream every word

Because there ain't nothin' in our walk
That just ain't the kind of luck that we've got
So let's move on

Cause' something's gone
So terribly wrong
Here in Pleasantville
