Lyrics:

It's a foggy summer morning
In the city that we live in
In the city that we visit
When we're visiting the city
Emotion in the faces
Of the people in the city
Tryin' to make a dream come true
Tryin' to get from A to B

Tryin' to hide and tryin' to stand out
Tryin' to find and tryin' to find out
Tryin' to hide and tryin' to stand out
Tryin' to find and tryin' to find out

Boot up a computer
like they did it in the old days
Change what represents you
like they did in the 90s

Look away, don't look what you did
Look at these celebrity pictures
Use some words that you don't use much
Find some rhythms and exploit them

Now and then, then and now
It's all the same to me somehow
Now and then, then and now
It's all the same to me somehow

Check the daily news, the headlines and weather
Wondering whether we're better off now
One day at a time, rising and falling
Don't give it a thought, you'll be better somehow

"We've been through all of this before" she says
And you can see it on her face
You know how this one turns out
You are easily replaced
"It's not like that" you say
and it's a desperate ploy
But somehow it works
Next time will be harder to avoid

It's a foggy summer morning
and the clouds are moving faster
Daylight comes up without warning
Monday morning alabaster
You're a statue in the garden
People pass by without seeing
They are playing out their dramas
Full of pathos, full of feeling

You're the watcher of the dream
No idea what it means
Now the talk-show host won't want to talk to you about it
So you say...

Now and then, then and now
It's all the same to me somehow
Now and then, then and now
It's all the same to me somehow

Check the daily news, the headlines and weather
Wondering whether we're better off now
One day at a time, rising and falling
Don't give it a thought, you'll be better somehow
