i could obscure these words with poetry
false maturity
there's no universal truth
no blueprint to help you follow you
it's all up to you
so be proud of what you do
cause it is what it is what it is what it is

when you have to go i know
and when you have to go i know
and when you have to go i know
and when you have to go i know
i know, i know, i know

and my mind just keeps reeling about this
empty feeling
yeah this thought process seems so endless
like oceans, and oceans, and oceans, and oceans,

and oh shit, radio killed honesty
like high school popularity
and maybe we should all just get over it.

pretend like we don't know who each other are
cause that's not far from the truth
but my heart is proof that i want to know
i don't want to let go
but if you have to go i know
and when you have to go i know
and if you have to go i know
and when you have to go i know
i know, i know, i know, i know

i'm sorry about your relationship
but you're making yourself sick
god damn, get over it
it is what it is what it is what it is

and oh shit, radio killed honesty
like high school popularity
and maybe we should all just get over it
well maybe we should all just get over it
oh shit, radio killed honesty
like high school popularity
and maybe we should all just get over it

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs.
    it seems like they're trying to get the point across that we shouldn't dwell over the petty things that go on in our lives and deal witht he real issues in the world and also in our lives.

    General CommentThis song always makes me think about existentialism whenever I hear it. You know, "There's no universal truth, no blueprint to help you follow through. It's all up to you." There's no predetermined way everything should be, it's all free will.
