Lyrics for All The Right Moves by OneRepublic:

Chorus 1
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Verse 1
Let's paint the picture of the perfect place
They've got it better than when anyone's told you
They'll be the King of Hearts, and you're the Queen of Spades
Then we'll fight for you like we were your soldiers
I know we got it good, but they got it made
And their grass is getting greener each day
I know things are looking up, but soon they'll take us down
Before anybody's knowing our name
They've got

Chorus 1
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Chorus 2
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Verse 2
Do you think I'm special?
Do you think I'm nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear
And the sounds you like
Are we just sinking in the ocean of faces?
It can't be possible, that rain can fall
Only when it's over our heads
The sun is shining everyday, but it's far away
Over the world that's dead
They've got, they've got

Chorus 1
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Chorus 2
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Bridge
It don't matter what you see
I know I could never be
Someone that'll look like you
It don't matter what you say
I know I could never fake
Someone that could sound like you

Chorus 1
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Chorus 2
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Outro
Yeah, we're going down
Yeah, we're going down
All the right moves, hey
Yeah, we're going down
All the right moves, hey
Yeah, we're going down

Song Facts

This song is self-depreciating. It is the band joking about doubt they’ve received from critics. The critics have a powerful influence over consumers, hence, all the right friends, all the right moves. The band is sort of mocking the critics who told them they were going to fail at music, hence, we’re going down. Are we just sinking in the ocean of faces? This is asking the consumers if they stand out or if they are just another typical wannabe. Around that term, they are asking the consumers if they think the band is good enough to make it in music industry.
