Stumbling along looking at nothing
Because your eyes are always on your feet
If you ever looked up then you'd see the sun
and the morining you wonder why things are so bleak..?

CHORUS
Boring and old are the things your told
about the outside world,
and just wearing black wont take care of that
Dont be stupid girl

Dont be stupid
Down on your knees trying to appleaase
Somebodys mixed up statement
Cause in not much time
Your beliefs that are lies
Will be left on the pavement
They'll be left by the way

Ive been doing some thinking
About all your preaching
and i dont wannna know Cause thats just comforming
and that is not what you wanna be

Chorus

Dont be stupid
Down on your knees trying to appleaase
Somebodys mixed up statement
Cause in not much time
Your beliefs that are lies
Will be left on the pavement
They'll be left by the way
Oh by the pavement
Oh dont be stupid girl
Your in your world
dont dress in black
Wont take care of that
Dont be, be so stupid girl

    General CommentThis song rocks. It just does. It's about thinking for yourself and not taking any crap from anyone.

    General CommentA nonconformist song. There's a message that says experience things for yourself, make your own decisions, and don't rely on the opinions of others to dictate your outlook on life. Don't be stupid, see things for yourself before forming an opinion on them. Hiding away won't change what's there, and what's commonly thought isn't a necessary truth, so leave it behind.

    General CommentBut what if blacks the colour your comftable in
    cause i know so many people who are the most laid back n comftable in black
    because we're being true to ourselves not tryna be the bright colours it just isnt us
    think of it that way.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl that used to be herself, but as she grew up she got sucked into being in one of the cliques she was surrounded by. Also, does the line "on your knees trying to appease somebody's mixed up statement" sound sexual to anyone else? Like, she was told she was frigid so she was "down on her knees", so to speak, to try and prove them wrong. So, it's just about peer pressure in general? I don't know, that's just always what it made me think of. Great song =]

    General CommentI think a verse was left out...

    "Walking and always talking
    But never listening,
    You just kick back.
    How do you handle
    All the bullshit that gets thrown your way?"

    I dunno, these lyrics are just weird...

    I think it's actually saying the opposite of this. If you listen carefully it says "wearing black wont take care of that, don't be stupid girl". This is saying that being a non-conformist, dressing in black and so forth, will not solve a single thing. It is encouraging people to snap out of it.

    General CommentI agree with Juzo. This song is saying that non-conformists are stupid. They conform to their own ridiculous non-conformist standards, focus entirely on being seen by others as a rebel, and accomplish nothing. I think this is one of the most intelligent songs ever written. Yay killing heidi

    General Commentits about not letting what you label yourself dictate your life. e.g. goth, jock, princess ect. doesnt matter what you label yourself its still conforming to someones beliefs rather than your own.
