You're at prom I'm home playin nintendo
lookin' out of my window wonderin' what I could be
You're the queen I'm home dreamin' on Tatooine
I can't help from what it seems I'll never be you

I see your face as I walk down the hallway
wonderin' will you look my way or just hold your blank stare
I kind of chuckle and I'm laughing at what I see
I know you won't look at me as if I'd even care

You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you
You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you

Years down the road when your drinkin' french latte
Sittin' in some old cafe wonderin' what went wrong
You'll think of me and the message I sent to you
The shit that you put me through to write this stupid song

You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you
You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you

I wonder why, why do I try
I wonder why, why do I try

You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you
You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
why you wear this disguise
I'm better I'm better than you

    General Commentpretty kewl song, kinda geekish but thats what makes it so good. has a very clear message about idolizing a popular girl who you can't close too.

    General Commentthis is one of my fav. songs by this band.

    "You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
    why you wear this disguise
    I'm better I'm better than you
    You never close your eyes, you never stop and wonder why
    why you wear this disguise
    I'm better I'm better than you"
