Remember the kids in the playground avoiding the bullies each day
Timing your life to the monsters, the monsters that won't go away
And you win some, you lose some, you ain't got much choice
So you choose one, what have you done?

Everybody lies and we're stuck in the middle
I think I liked it better when the world was round
There's too much information but not enough to go on
I think I liked it better when the world was round.

Now that we're older and wiser, now we got kids of our own
Timing their lives to the monsters but the monsters won't leave them alone
You win some, you lose some, you ain't got much choice
But it's gotta be done, yeah, it's gotta be done.

'Cause everybody lies and we're stuck in the middle
I think I liked it better when the world was round
There's too much information but not enough to go on
I think I liked it better when the world was round;

I don't wanna put you off it, I don't wanna put you off it
But I think I liked it better when the world was round
And I wish that I could change it, yes I wish that I could change it
I think I liked it better when the world was round.

Is it my imagination?
When I look back through the ages?
Is it my imagination? Yeah.

You win some, you lose some, you only got two shots
So you take one, what have you done?

'Cause everybody lies and we're stuck in the middle
I think I liked it better when the world was round
There's too much information but not enough to go on
I think I liked it better when the world was round
And I don't think we deserve this, no I don't think we deserve this
I think I liked it better when the world was round
Give me a reason to believe in, give me a reason to believe in
I think I liked it better when the world was round
Maybe we can make it better, maybe we can make it better
I think I liked it better when the world was round
When the world was round, when the world was round
I think I liked it better when the world was round
When the world was round, when the world was round
