your shirts are pressed
your words are planned
your jeans are ripped
your skin is tan
and like the cancer in your hands
you've plagued this town with schemes and plans
it makes me sick
that they can't see
your own predictive irony
you're at your peak and that's just fine
you take your moment; i'll take mine

i'd like to believe the best of me
is something i have yet to see
coz working at dead-end jobs
and skipping class
and spending hours on my ass
just doesn't sound like any fun to me

i hate to judge
but i can't stop
unless you step off your soapbox
coz it's caving in and you can't tell
you're busy checking out yourself
oh you're so deep
your taste is chic
but we both know that talk is cheap
it matters least
the words you shout
if you don't know what's coming out

i'd like to believe the best of me
is something i have yet to see
coz working at dead-end jobs
and skipping class
and spending hours on my ass
just doesn't sound like any fun to me

it's senior year
and we're all down
for getting out of this old town
you're staying back
you'd rather stop
coz at this moment you're on top
the years will pass
we'll all come through
and you'll be right just where we left you
you'll realise
you weren't so cool
and that we're all so over highschool

i'd like to believe the best of me
is something i have yet to see
coz working at dead-end jobs
and skipping class
and spending hours on my ass
just doesn't sound like any fun to me

    General Commentabout graduating high school.

    during senior year, and not really knowing exactly where you're going, but knowing that you just want to break free from everything ("working at dead-end jobs
    and skipping class
    and spending hours on my ass
    just doesn't sound like any fun to me")

    General CommentThis song is definitely about graduating high school and not wanting to know where you're going, just that you want out

    But, it is also about that one dude in high school, the one that is "cool", but also the one who has a future of domestic violence and alcohol abuse ahead of him, as he lives in his double wide, never giving up on his glory days of running this small town. The guy who you'll run into at the bar when you come back to visit, and he's still wearing his varsity jacket even though his belly seems to have outgrown it.

    The verses are about that stereotypical person, no doubt. The choruses are about getting the fuck out, but not being sure what you want to do.

    General CommentI love how he captures exactly what teenagers are feeling, but in a creative, artistic, catchy way.

    Almost all of his songs relate to me and my friends, which makes them the perfect anthem to our weekend nights.

    He's great.

    General CommentI really dont think you guys are giving him cerdit for his amazing lyrics. I don't think his songs are too artistic, however, they do say exactly how people feel. When I first heard this song i was speechless, I wanted to scream because this song describes my high school career perfectly, I dont think its so much a song about him graduating and wanting to get out, although he clearly does, its much more about the people that need to grow up and get a clue that there is way more out there than just high school. I loved it!
