I stop and I think about
The life I could live without
Watching another, follow the other
Blind faith, that’s the way it is
These days how did it come to this
Born in the eighties made me crazy

I was barely born but I have learned to feel alive

I must be out of my mind
To act this way
I tell them all of the time
That I’m okay
But when you see me next
One thing you can expect
I guarantee that I’ll be
Out of my mind.

I stop and I think about
The life I could live without
Hearing soft lies
Said with kind eyes
Blind faith that’s the way it is
How did we ever come to this?
Born in the eighties made us crazy

Consider the trouble of the double decade kind.

Staring out the window only just to see
It’s not enough for me, It’s not enough for me
All the faces only make me want to say
Make me want to say
I think I’ve lost my way

    General CommentIt seems like this song is about letting go of what is considered the typical path of success; that dictated mostly by money. How success for most people is judged by ones fresh out of undergrad school salary, or where one is going to grad school. But these guys have a different outlook on it. Perhaps "blind faith" is their hopes that hey may or not make it big. Despite any struggle they may have as a band, they feel like they are doing what they love and are saying "fuck it" to the norm. They are living excited unpredictable lives, and not the monotonous office job lifestyle. Cuz when it comes down to it they are still young and are living their youth to the fullest.
