In Columbus they were shoping on the first day
The first offical day of war
Its so easy being oblivious
And its easy being self-absorbed
Inside of eighty diffrent stores and coffe shops
The whole worlds not like yours
There are many kinds of problems
Not all of them are like yours
Or mine, but I forget that all the time

Oh drama are you all in my head
But problems arnt really all that bad
So distracted by the things that I dont have
How sad

Our petty problems we add them up
Dwell on them half of the day
Our petty problems we add them up
And they always get in the way
Our petty problems so american
So caught up in our own little world
Ba ba da da da da da da da da da
Ba ba da da da da da da da da da

Oh drama are you all in my head
But problems arnt really all that bad
So distracted by the things that I dont have
How sad

How sad.

    General Commenti go to school in Kingston Massachusetts, and this song is the definition of all the whining, ignorant and selfish people who live on that peice of land. i'm not saying i don't complain about things from time to time, but you should hear the things i have to hear about at the lunch table...hair appoinment cancelations, discusting lunch food, daddy won't let me use his credit card, i hate this teacher because he gave me an F, ect ect ect. fuck you

    My InterpretationGreat song, as "cfonts" touched on, it's pretty much just a song that calls out everyone complaining of "first world problems" ie - problems that aren't really anything to complain about. There's people struggling just to stay fed and stay healthy but we're all (as a whole) so narrow minded we don't think about anyone else's problems for the most part.
