I don't mind that I've
Come back here again
In a place so far away
From normal life

They are racing to a prison
They will never leave
Worshipping a system
I just don't believe

I could stay right here
And never ever leave
What else do I need

I know that you don't like me
That's all right today
I love you, but you bore me
Don't fuck up my day

I could stay right here
And never ever leave
What else do I need

I could stay right here
And never ever leave
What else do I need

People worry that
I don't do anything
I think they really wonder
Why I'm not like them

They are racing to a prison
They will never leave
Worshipping a system
I just don't believe

I could stay right here
And never ever leave
What else do I need
What else do I need
What else do I need

    General CommentI'll post a similar message here too:

    A few of Jon Croby's songs seem to be based around the same theme

    "People worry that
    I don't do anything
    I think they really wonder
    Why I'm not like them"

    e.g. My TV & You being another example

    General CommentI think this song is about apathy. He doesn't care anymore, it's not worth the hassle of trying.

    Everyone else is racing to the prison, which he in his apathy view ordinary life, the rat race to get grades, gain friends and make a career. To him that is worthless, he doesn't have the energy to try. He does not belive that ordinary life will make him any good either.

    He doesn't even care that people don't like him. He likes them, but it is not worth trying to gain their sympathy. He rather not commit or be disturbed.

    This is a description of loosing your feelings, your emotions, your will to do anything. All is gray and nothing is good or bad anymore. No anger, nor sadness, just apathy.
