Been trying to be cool ever since high school
Cool like the stars and sexy people in bars
The stars will fall they'll line up in the hall
May sound nice, but it's ugly inside
I lost all my pride
Taken apart
One more false start
How do you think we're gonna do this time around
You're the queen of sound

Been trying to hear something complete
No microtones and no backbeat
Been trying to be cool ever since high school
Cool like the stars and sexy people in bars

    General CommentI can't wait until I graduate. Then I can listen to this song and realize that I've been taken apart from the only world I know and pushed into a new world in which I must start over in order to earn respect, which will never happen. This is what I think of every time I listened to this song. This is only my view, and though it may be completely inaccurate to what the song is trying to portray, it probably will never change. Im completely convinced that life after high school will be the end of me. I'm oblivious to what the meaning of "You're the queen of sound" is. All in all this must be my favorite Nada Surf song, along with "Zen Brain" and "Spooky" and "Stalemate", oh hell they're all amazing. Thank you Nada Surf.
