Good Charlotte - The Motivation Proclamation Lyrics




Spend your lazy, endless crazy days, inside my head,
You're so selfish, you're not the only one who thinks he's dead
I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial for what you think I said
But I never said that everything would be ok,
And I never said that we would live to see another day..yeah..yeah..

[Chorus:]
Motivate me, I wanna get myself out of this bed,
Captivate me, I want good thoughts inside of my head,
If I fall down would you come around and pick me right up off the ground? [x2]

I'm realistic and narcissistic,
You say I'm selfish and absurd
You try to change me, you try to save me
You say I'm gonna learn, I'm so blind,
I'm out of time, You're so unkind sometimes,
I never lied, I never lied, I never lied
Cuz I never said that everything would be ok,
and I never said that we would live to see another day..yeah..yeah..

[Chorus:]
Motivate me, I wanna get myself out of this bed,
Captivate me, I want good thoughts inside of my head,
If I fall down would you come around and pick me right up off the ground? [x2]

(Right up off the ground.. Pick me right up off the ground.. Yeah..Oh)

Yeah, 'Cause everything, it'll be ok,
You know we're gonna live to see another day,
Yeah...yeah...yeah...yeah...
Motivate me...yeah,
(I wanna get myself outta this)
Motivate me...yeah
(I wanna get myself outta this)
Motivate me...yeah
(I wanna get myself outta this)
Motivate me...yeah
(I wanna get myself outta this bed!)

    The Undergrads :')

  5. Codie Hughes

    Saw them live during the Warped Tour in 2001 (I think) and my friend got his picture in the paper because Benji put the microphone in his face due to how much he was singing. It was an awesome concert and I remember it fondly!

  6. Rhodney Jay

    Did it make anyone else think of Weezer's Sweater Song at the end?

  7. Amazin82

    When this band was decent and didn’t completely go full MTV. They re not even a band.....it’s the Madden Twins and friends.

    This is still my favorite song by them and Festival Song

  8. De(AD)iNSiDE

  36. Jese Rante

    Spend your lazy, endless, crazy days inside my head.
    You're so selfish, you're not the only one who thinks he's dead.

    I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial for what you think I said

    But I never said that everything would be ok,
    And I never said that we would live to see another day

    [Chorus:]
    Motivate me, I wanna get myself out of this bed,
    Captivate me, I want good thoughts inside of my head,
    If I fall down,
    Would you come around and pick me right up off the ground?
    If I fall down,
    Would you come around and pick me right up off the ground?

    I'm unrealistic and narcisistic,
    You say I'm selfish and absurd
    You try to change me, you try to save me
    You say I'm gonna learn, I'm so blind,
    I'm out of time, You're so unkind sometimes,
    I never lied, I never lied, I never lied...

    Cuz I never said that everything would be ok,
    And I never said that we would live to see another day

    [Chorus]

    Cuz everything, it'll be ok,
    You know we're gonna live to see another day,
    Yeah...yeah...yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

    Motivate me...
    (I wanna get myself out of this)
    Motivate me...

    The Motivation Proclamation / Letra
    Spend your lazy, endless crazy
    Days inside my head.
    You're so selfish, you're not the only
    One who thinks he's dead.
    I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial
    For what you think I said.
    'Cause I never said that everything would be okay,
    And I never said that we would live to see another day.

    Motivate me
    I want to get myself outta this bed.
    Captivate me
    I want good thoughts inside of my head.
    When I fall down would you come around
    Pick me right up off the ground?

    I'm realistic, and narsosistic
    You say I'm selfish and absurd.
    You try to change me,
    You try to save me,
    You say I'm gonna learn.
    I'm so blind, I'm out of time,
    You're so unkind sometimes.
    I never lied, I never lied, I never lied....
    'Cause I never said that everything would be OK,
    I never said that we would live to see another day...

    Motivate me
    I want to get myself outta this bed.
    Captivate me
    I want good thoughts inside of my head.
    When I fall down would you come around
    Pick me right up off the ground?
