Lyrics

Further into the fog I fall
Well, I was just following you!
When you said:
 "Do as I do and scrap your fey ways"

Dial-a-cliché

 "Grow up, be a man, and close
  Your mealy-mouth!"

Dial-a-cliché
Dial-a-cliché
Dial-a-cliché

But the person underneath
Where does he go?
Does he slide by the wayside?
Or...does he just die?
And you find that you've organized your feelings
For people who didn't like you then
And do not like you now

But still you say:
 "Do as I do and scrap your fey ways"

Dial-a-cliché

 "Grow up, be a man, and close
  Your mealy-mouth!"

Dial-a-cliché
 "The Safe way is the only way!
  There's always time to change, son!"

I've changed but I'm in pain!
Dial-a-cliché
