I'm not sad anymore, I'm just tired of this place.
The weight of the world be okay if it would pick a shoulder to lean on
So I could stand up straight.

I'm not sad anymore, I'm just tired of this place.
The homophobic bullshit that's somehow okay
Just because you didn't mean it that way.

I can't take anymore of all the scum in this place.
Shitty dudes with tribal tattoos all around,
Lining up cheap beer and roofies for a party at their place.
Trying to convince freshmen they're somebody
By spending all of their parents' money on kegstands
And Matt says I don't fit in.

All this mallrat goth shit is killing me.
Thought that would end with high school at least.
But there are still kids and Matt says
"College hit those dudes like a ton of bricks."

So they're calling it blasphemy,
A fucking catastrophe
For saying it's a stupid choice to make.
But this place just brings misery.
I hate what it does to me.
I fight, but I can't escape the way that I don't fit in with any of this.
And I don't think we're the same.

I'm fucking losing my head trying to understand this.
Kids outside with guitars hoping for someone to notice.
No one wants to hear your sappy bullshit.

All these fake-tan girls laughing at art school kids
Getting lots in return for being substance-less.
You're too caught in semantics to see it,
But you're no fucking different.

So they're calling it blasphemy,
A fucking catastrophe
For saying it's a stupid choice to make.
But this place just brings misery.
I hate what it does to me.
I fight, but I can't escape the way that I don't fit in with any of this.
And I don't think we're the same.

No.

I'm not sad anymore, I'm just waiting.
It's two more months 'til I'm done with this.
And I don't make sense to anyone but my best friends.
And I don't fit in anywhere but the back of the van.

    General CommentI was at a concert and the Wonder Years opened, and the singer said that this songs was about why he hated college. After knowing that, if you look back at the lyrics, they make complete sense and they completely explain what anyone would feel not only in college, but in any grade.

    Wow, as a student at the University of Vermont, this couldn't ring more true. I can't count how many kids sit outside, or in stairwells, playing terrible Jack Johnson and John Mayer songs and their shitty acoustic hoping girls will fall in love with their perfection of G C and D chords. Pathetic. Go play some punk. know your roots and be real.

    Getting mocked in return for being substance-less.

    General Commentsoupy went to temple in philly. basically everything he says in this song is true. awful parties filled with frat boys and date rape and tons of kids performing annoying duets on acoustic guitars on liacouras playing the same three chords over and over covering some john mayer song.
