When I turned 21, I thought the world was dumb and that I really couldn’t take it
So I bought the cure that I knew for sure was really pure and then I went and ate it
Then I went to Spain, lay in pain in the rain, going insane, there’s no way to explain it
I was young, the world was dumb

Then I turned 23 and I climbed a tree with you and me and I peeled a lemon apple
And I turned once more to the bore in the store who took the core and told me with a cackle
"There’s no such thing in the ching or in the spring on the wings 'cept the commercial phenom they call Snapple"
I was young, the world was dumb

[chorus]
In a world where nothing seems to be taboo
God takes on the form of revenue
You question everything you ever knew
And it's not so easy, y'know it's not so easy
To change this world

In the name of the game, it’s a shame, it’s so lame, but I blame the same who came in preaching kindness
Yet turned to another holy brother of a mother, called him "other" under cover in the name of some slick higness
I’m sick and tired of the world unfurled where you’re hurled and swirled in hate and stupid human triteness
I’m still young, the world’s still dumb

[chorus]

So I try to buy the high and mighty words of those who claim to be so caring
But they seem so busy with stupid things like makeup hair and the type of clothes they’re wearing
I’m not immune to these things, but I sing this tune to incite myself and whomever might be hearing
I’m still young, the world’s still dumb

[chorus]

And it's not so easy, y'know it's not so easy
To change this dumb world
