(NOTE: Most people think the chorus says "Fallin'" (falling), however according to the band's web site, they are saying "Fold It".) 
 
Counting all different ideas drifting away 
Past and present they don’t matter 
Now the future’s sorted out 
Watch her moving in elliptical patterns 
Think it’s not what you say 
What you say is way too complicated 
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out 
 
It’s twenty seconds till the last call 
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey 
Lie down you know it’s easy 
Like we did it over summer long 
 
And I’ll be anything you ask and more 
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey hey 
It’s not a miracle we needed 
No I wouldn’t let you think so 
 
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it 
(most people think it sounds like "fallin'", "falling", "ballin'", "balling", "bawlin'", or "bawling") 
 
Girlfriend, oh your girlfriend is drifting away 
Past and present 1855 -1901 † 
Watch them built up a meteor tower 
Think it’s not gonna stay anyway 
Think it’s overrated 
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out 
 
It’s twenty seconds till the last call 
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey 
Lie down you know it’s easy 
Like we did it over summer long 
 
And I’ll be anything you ask and more 
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey hey 
It’s not a miracle we needed 
No I wouldn’t let you think so 
 
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
