"Totally Stupid" as written by and Andrew F. Wilkes-krier....
Life's too short
So do what you want
I've said it before and I'll say it again
So everyone just do what you want

People will laugh, and tell you to mop
People will call, and here come the cops
It's all beaten up and going to town
You did what you could, and put the ball out of bounds.

I'm totally stupid
totally stupid [Repeat: x1]

People don't like
What you do
Give them what they want
Give them what they have
Give them what they are
And they should

People don't care
They tell you what to do
Do what we can
And put the ball out of bounds
And we dig deep pulling out
Out of the ground

I'm totally stupid [Repeat: x3]
I'm totally stupid
I'm totally stupid
I'm totally stupid
Totally stupid [Repeat: x1]
I'm totally stupid

[Bridge x1]
Would you give up all you want
To keep the things you got [Repeat: x1]
To keep the things you got

All the things we want are here
We have to face our fear [Repeat: x1]

When we look into the future
To the place we haven't gone
See what we haven't done
We have known it all along

If we wait until tomorrow
Will tomorrow ever come?
This is where we're coming from
And we're not the only ones

When we find ourselves in trouble
We can find ourselves a way
You can find a place to stay
And the place is always safe

If you have a heart that's in pain
Don't be afraid
You're not to blame
There's a better world inside of us
Where we always thought it was
You don't need to hide
You can open up your eyes

And you'll discover
That there is another, world

    General Commentyou're totally stupid if you're blind to the world around you. if you shut them out. if you think no one cares. open up your arms and embrace this world, there will always be someone or something to help you. nothing is too good for you. no matter what you've done in the past, there is always a way to make it better.
    if something breaks, it can be made greater.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. We should all ask ourselves:
    "Would you give up all you want
    To keep the things you got"

    "And would you give up all you got
    To get the things you want"

    General Commentwell..the video certainly was something
    i've never seen a man thrash in a wheelchair before
    that in itself was inspiring

    My InterpretationI think what Andrew means by "totally stupid" is that by calling yourself "totally stupid", you are free to do what you want without caring for other people's opinions. You are totally stupid and you don't care. The final part of the song is the same message but presented differently. Andrew says that "when we look into the future to the place we haven't gone", and "see what we haven't done", we will regret it deeply, so we should live life to it's fullest everyday and when that "future" comes, we will not regret a thing. That's just my opinion.
