lyrics

I tell myself
"Don't contribute to the noise"
But all I hear is other boys and I can't help but think it's time to drown them out with some girls who can speak and think for themselves

I tell myself
to be proud of the world that I live in
but the environment's destroyed with every bar code that they're printing
and blood is spilling on my neighbor's doorstep and you stand behind your flag and endorse it?

I tell myself
to be confident in everything that I do
but every billboard is telling me that I need to get something new and that my skin isn't worthy of a second look until I pay for a body and learn how to cook

I tell myself
to be gracious and to be kind
but baby I think I'm losing my mind
and I can't help but hope I'll die before I get old cause I'm a loner whose sadness takes the gold

Whose alone and whose sadness takes the gold
A rush of blood to my brain
baby I think I'm going insane

We're gonna die
Baby, It's alright.
