I don't believe in anything so you may as well forget about me
It's time you took it upon yourself to go join the other team
Forget about me
Anyway, I got myself some bowling shoes
An' they are all that I can see
With all my might I scored a strike
My friend you wouldn't believe
My teenage years were wasted all on me

On Saturday I watched a film
It was black and white with Clark Gable in
I've seen that film one hundred time or more
How am I going to tell my friends
I won't be coming out with them no more?

Don't you know that I feel sad?
You only know how to get mad

    General CommentI think this song is about disillusion and feeling that you don't fit in with your friends anymore because they don't seem to comprehend you anymore.

    General Commenti think it's written in the viewpoint of the person who is getting left behind in a relationship
    like they see their friend is changing and growing up and they can't relate anymore.

    and the idea of bowling is referenced to an old pastime they shared.

    General CommentI love this song. It embodies teen apathy perfectly. Things you used to enjoy don't provoke any feeling at all. You watch the same movie over and over, even though you already know how it ends. I've been there.
