I'll bet they all told you you were cool when you were 16
When you were sifting through lyrics and books to prove that you had some depth
I get that it seemed like such a sweet way to be
But life is drifting, and the more you quote Lennon, the less we all care
Nobody cares that you learned to play guitar and sing of girls as if they never had a problem at all
Nobody cares that you never learned to deal with things like we did
Nobody cares that you think you have a message for the masses that could help, if they could only hear
Nobody cares that you never learned to keep it in perspective
This time, you'll consider being "normal" someday
Maybe someday, existentialism might just fade away for you
This line is more of a hook than a meaningful phrase
But I bet they praise the guts to lay down all the metaphors and every bit of bad taste
I doubt that you're an exception. I doubt that you've got it figured out.
I doubt this'll meet good reception. I doubt I'll care, and I'll shut my mouth.
