"Thanks For Nothing" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley, Stephen Martin Jocz and Greig Andrew Nori....
I'll never take part in the grown population
Or waste my time with further education
To get what we know, is just a big show
Where they want to control
So chained and frustrated
It's all so complicated
Fashion, no passion surrounds me

All I know is I've heard this all before
Reality's a bore (is a bore)
You ask me to believe it (never believe)
Something they provide
Can't bring myself to, do what
You want me to (want me to)
This is who we are and (who we are)
nothing's gonna change, nothing's gonna change

I can't take part in the business revolution
Or take my chance in the real world confusion
Don't blame us, who do we trust when they're so dis-a-honest
No patience, this nation's obsessed with exploitation
Lying, denying surrounds me

All I know is I've heard this all before
Reality's a bore (is a bore)
You ask me to believe it (never believe)
Something they provide
Can't bring myself to, do what
You want me to (want me to)
This is who we are and (who we are)
Nothing's gonna change

(what!) Don't think you can ignore us (ignore us)
Don't tell me your word is right (word is right)
Don't pick a future for us (for us)
We lack 'cause we're involved!!

All I know is I've heard this all before
Reality's a bore (is a bore)
You ask me to believe it (never believe)
Something they provide
Can't bring myself to, do what
You want me to (want me to)
This is who we are and (who we are)
Nothing's gonna change

Thanks for nothing (I've heard this all before),
Thanks for nothing (reality's a bore),
Thanks for nothing (it'll never be the same),
Thanks for nothing (and nothing's gonna change)

    General CommentI think this is about parents completley planning their childrens lives, and not letting the children be what they want to be.

    General Commentamen to that, life as lucid! anyone know who's the guy who sings the first two lines? he's the same guy who sings the first part of fat lip. him and the regular vocalist make a great pair.
