Oh, We're pretty boys for secret girls
who never stood a chance in the world
Not ready for sincerity
I'd tell any lies to keep you listening

I gave you pretentious
I gave you indifference
But you only want undressed and defensless
With all your cheap words about hearts and accidents
Who are you kidding?

Listen Listen Listen Listen

Sincerity's in
So don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath
In a year no one will even care if it's in
So don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath
In a year...

Everyone loves an underdog
That's why you're singing along
With all your cheap words, who are you kidding?
We're pretty boys for secret girls
Who are you kidding?

Sincerity's in so don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath,
In a year no one will even care if it's in
So don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath
In a year...

Hey, everyone loves an underdog.
Hey, everyone loves an underdog.

Hook sets in
When this all ends
I will wish it never began
Or I will die without attention
When hook sets in
And when this all ends
I will wish it never began
Or I will die without attention

Sincerity's in,
So don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath
In a year no one will even care if it's in
So don't you sound like you mean it
Hold back your breath
In a year...

    General Commentits an ok song.i can see why they left it off of the album. i downloaded it off LIMEWIRE. just put in "austin, we have a problem" on "from under the cork tree demos".
    the song is all about how in a year no one will care about them and that all the fans love an underdog--fans love to see kids new in the scene. meaning that they will be replaced sooner than later. right now, they are the underdog.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song i thought NO WHAT HAS HAPPENED, it sounded like a step back and not anywhere near the greatness that has been scaled on FUCT, but then i gave it a chance and found it to be a real grower!

    Great song.
