You, with your words like knives and swords
And weapons that you use against me
You, have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feeling like I'm nothing
You, with your nails on a chalkboard,
Calling me out when I'm wounded
You, picking on the weaker man

Well can you take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city,
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation
You, have pointed out my flaws again
As if I don't already see them
I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around,
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now
'Cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar
Talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
But nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing
But all you are is mean

All you are is mean
And a liar,
And pathetic
And alone in life,
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?
