lyrics

I was gonna write a song to change the world
Then I remembered that I ain’t got shit to say
You haven’t already heard

It was gonna be fuckin’ rad
Then I realized I only know three string chords
And play in dumb punk rock bands

It was gonna be my one and only hit
But I’m to self-deprecating
To finish it

But I’m bored, so I’ll start it up again
Now I’m wondering how this verse should end
And how the next one should begin

I was gonna write a song to change the world
But now it’s starting to sound like
Every song I’ve ever written

So I’m just gonna try to finish it
Cause I’ve got like 10,000 riffs
But can’t write lyrics for shit

Take me back to the days
When I could write anything
Full of angst and arrogant
And too dumb to give a shit

Back, oh, back to the days
When I believed the words I sang
How it felt at the start
Before this cynicism broke my heart

I was gonna write a song to change the world
I think I set the bar too high
Was a little too ambitious

So I’m just gonna try to kill the time
By writing a song for an album I wont make
But if I did, you wouldn’t buy
