Quite possibly the longest-worked-on track on the album. I was experimenting with the chord progression for this song well before "The Way I Am" came into being, but it was still one of the last songs written on the album.


Step outside with me!
If you don't look then you'll never see
All the beautiful things that we were meant to be
Move beyond this low-hanging roof we
Built up to keep us dry
Look to the sky!
It's falling down drop by delicious drop
Don't just hide and wait for it to stop
A little dance in the rain will be just fine
Come out while there's still time!
See, the storm won't last forever
Life will resume, and we'll go back to whatever we do
Stand in line, mark down your time,
And work so hard to save a dime, but right now
Let's pretend like no one looking
They're all, uh... inside cooking up
Some lame excuse
But not you, you're not self-conscious enough
To be concerned with all that fluff...

Inhibition's tearing me apart
Inside part of me longs just to seize the day

I've heard what they say:
Odd, weird, uncivilized
I wear it with a badge of pride
'Cause you see right now their words don't matter
In the broad scheme of things
What good is freedom if we're not free to use it
Not disrespect and abuse it
'Cause like so many things in life
If you don't treasure it, you'll lose it
Please don't call the men in white coats
Their straight jackets laced up to the throat
Have a tendency to suffocate all the good things in life
I'm just kidding
I'm not clinical like that (just yet)
But think about it for a sec
Could what I just said really be
Some kind of metaphor? You tell me...

Inhibition's tearing me apart
Inside part of me longs just to seize the day
Rainy days don't seem so bad right now
Even when blue skies fade to a darkened grey

Lose your inhibitions but don't lose your conscience
This freedom we have cost a good man his life
And some rules are only there to keep us from
Things we're going to regret
But appearances are meaningless outside of time
So for one brief moment
Forget everything that you're trying to be
Come outside and dance with me
