It’s the scratching around that’s gonna take us down
We’re getting much too dirty for the diamonds in the rough
Fake your stuff and be a poster child of something

But that’s how I landed in the corner on Monday
I was slouching round with cynics running off my mouth
I can tell you how it is but then I sit it out
Uh huh huh huh

And the Cardboard Cutouts say you’re saving face but
They don’t really know how it feels
The Cardboard Cutouts say you’re losing faith
They don’t really know how it feels
They don’t really know how it feels

So let’s snap to attention and forget all of the mention
Of the diamonds in the rough cause if you dream it hard enough
Well then it must be true and we all gonna go home happy
I can be the cake and eat it too

Or I show up naked with my label sticking out
Like a beta kappa martyr gentlemen start your engines snarling
I get off on the races but I won’t come clean
Uh huh huh huh

And the Cardboard Cutouts say you’re saving face but
They don’t really know how it feels
Gotta nerve coming round this place when
They don’t even know how it feels
They don’t even know how it feels
I just want to know how it feels
(Don’t you wanna know how it feels?)

I know what they’re gonna say …
Who says it should be that way …

And the Cardboard Cutouts say you’re saving face
They don’t really know how it feels
Gotta nerve coming round this place when
They don’t even know how it feels
They don’t even know how it feels
I just want to know how it feels
Don’t you want to know how it feels?
