ba ba ba ba ba (x4)
my life 'til now has been filled with doubt
here I am, 'cause there's no other place I can go
but I can see you're a lot like me
so maybe you know somewhere people like us can go
where we won't get kicked out
because we've got a lot to talk about
after years of research I think I've figured it out
it's the little things that get you down
it's the bigger things that you can't get around
and it's way too flat on the middle ground
but everything else is wide open
so let's go
ba ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba ba, together
ba ba ba ba ba (x2)
teacher please, don't be such a tease
give me some kind of sign, not detention this time
the things that we used to do have been turned into a zoo
by people who say all the things that we used to say
and if we say them again, we're gonna sound just like them
after years of remorse I think I've taken it in
it's the little things that get you down
it's the bigger things that you can't get around
and it's way too flat on the middle ground
but everything else is an oyster
everything else is a picnic
everything else is terrific!
so let's go
ba ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba ba, together
ba ba ba ba ba (x6)

    General CommentThis isn't about love. It's merely the singer finding somebody who agrees with him on some topic, be it politics, music, or maybe just some social situation like all those high school scenarios. His entire life up to this point has been filled with wondering whether he's crazy or if everybody else is wrong and just general, ya know, "doubt." Anyhow, he has found this person in the last place left for him to go, perhaps underground, so to speak, the place where people of that mindset go when they decide that everybody else sucks. Also it is a safe zone, where they won't get persecuted "kicked out" for their thoughts. Anyhow, they are searching for somewhere to go to discuss their opinions. Basically they both think on the extreme of the topic, while everybody else thinks to appease, in the "middle ground." Everything else, the extremes, is wide open to discussion because nobody will touch it. Instead of "blah blah blah" or "yada yada yada," they go "Ba ba ba ba ba." I haven't figured out the teacher part. But the next part is just as simple as it sounds. The things that these two rebels have said are now being taken by the middle-grounders and being misused and such. Now the rebels can't say these things, because they will sound conformist. I'm drawing another blank on where the remorse comes from. But still the extremes of the topic are good, like an oyster (i.e. "the world is my oyster"), or a picnic, or just flat out terrific. The key change in the ba's means nothing.
