You burn with the fiery passion of youth
(I can't be satisfied)
You read it in literature, so it must be the truth

You certainly know how to have a good time
(I can't be satisfied)
I had some fun about eight, but I was alright by nine

Obviously you've got something I lack
Get out and don't come back

Did you know I'm a pessimist?
Have you ever wanted to die?
Have you no decency?
It's a hard world, that's no lie

All the experiences you have had
(I can't be satisfied)
Sometime you must let me know how you tell the good from the bad

I just don't care if I get out of bed
(I can't be satisfied)
The first sign of apathy and you check to see if you're dead

Some of my best friends are bastards like you
At least they're not neurotics too

Did you know I'm a pessimist?
Have you ever wanted to die?
Have you no decency?
It's a hard world, that's no lie

    General CommentJust some corrections as far as I can hear them, and which make a bit more sense (wrong words in [brackets], corrections in CAPITALS). What do you think? Two pairs of ears are better than one...



    you burn with a fiery passion of years
    (i cant be satisfied)
    you read it in literature, so it [was] MUST BE the truth

    you [suddenly] CERTAINLY know how to have a good time
    (i cant be satisfied)
    [i had some fun about it, but i was alright by nine] {- not sure about this line???}

    obviously you have something i lack
    get out and don't come back

    did you know i'm a pessimist?
    have you ever wanted to die?
    have you no decency?
    it's a hard world, that's no lie

    all the experiences we have had
    (i cant be satisfied)
    someday you must let me know how you tell the [date from my back] GOOD FROM THE BAD

    i just don't care if i get out of bed
    (i cant be satisfied)
    the first sign of apathy and you check to see if you're dead

    some of my best friends are bastards like you
    at least they're not neurotics too

    did you know i'm a pessimist?
    have you ever wanted to die?
    have you no decency?
    it's a hard world, that's no lie (x3)
