your seat belt on
And drive
Drive on
To the place where we are wanted

And if
it takes about
a thousand years
Then we'll keep going
and going

'Til someone knows
who we really are
We're nobody
Nobody important

In our impeccable shirts
And our impeccable jeans
The words on both
say exactly the same things

'Please come and say hello
We are really special
Exactly like
Everybody else, everybody else'

We're pretenders
Understand us
We get bubbles
For our trouble
(All in an effort to be
all that you want us to be)

We're pretenders
So befriend us
You'll get bubbles
For your trouble
(So won't you love us for it
Won't you please love us for it)

And we dream, we dream
The day will come
When you say the words
that make every angsty song
Ever written
suddenly become
What I mean by this is:

I don't ever want to be myself
