Rylan, you should try to get some sun.
You remind me of everyone.
Rylan, did you break your mother’s heart
Every time you try to play your part?

Is it easy to keep so quiet?
Everybody loves a quiet child.
Is it easy to seem so grounded?
Wanna be alone in la-la-land.

Rylan, you can take the quick way out.
You can turn blank white in a blank white house.
They say that you're a pervert, you’re a vulture.
Don’t you wanna be popular culture.

Is it easy to keep so quiet?
Everybody loves a quiet child.
Is it easy to seem so grounded?
Wanna be alone in la-la-land.

Is it easy to live inside the role?
All the little kids are high and hazy.
Everybody got no where to go,
Everybody wants to be amazing.

Rylan california’s rotten.
Dressed like blue to be forgotten.
Each occurs on sunday morning.
Keep the conversation boring.
Stay with me among the strangers.
Change your mind and nothing changes.
Don’t let show any emotion
When you fly in to the ocean.
Rylan, you should try to get some sun.
There's a little bit of heaven in everyone.

Is it easy to keep so quiet?
Everybody loves a quiet child.
Is it easy to seem so grounded?
Wanna be alone in la-la-land.

Is it easy to live inside the role?
All the little kids are high and hazy.
Everybody got no where to go,
Everybody wants to be amazing.

Rylan, you should try to get some sun.
You remind me of everyone.
Rylan, you should try to get some sun.
A little bit of heaven in everyone
Rylan, you should try to get some sun.

    My InterpretationThe key idea I'm getting, is that of someone so entirely obsessed with blending in and being socially normal, that they have completely lost any distinguishing features, however manage to deceive all but the speaker.
    "Rylan, you should try to get some sun." seems sort of like a plea in my mind, with sun being used in the sense of some light in his life
    "You remind me of everyone." is probably my favourite line, showing how this person's lack of personality can be used to represent society en masse.

    Though the element of fitting in is present, this doesn't seem related to wanting to gain status or be socially acknowledged at all, Rylan in my mind has always been anxious about others, and genuinely does not know how to be like other people, making his actions stunted and insincere, because of how numb he feels to life in general.
    "Rylan, did you break your mother’s heart
    Every time you try to play your part?"
    the "play your part?" presents him as sort of contrived, his near autistic behaviours alienating him inwardly from his mother, who struggles with an emotionally incapable child.

    "Is it easy to keep so quiet?
    Everybody loves a quiet child.
    Is it easy to seem so grounded?
    Wanna be alone in la-la-land." fairly self explanatory in what this shows

    "Rylan, you can take the quick way out.
    You can turn blank white in a blank white house." Idea of "blank white" erased, obvious reference to suicide

    "They say that you're a pervert, you’re a vulture." although he attempts to fit with everything, it slowly shows how detached he is, making him seem weird.

    "Is it easy to live inside the role?
    All the little kids are high and hazy.
    Everybody got no where to go,
    Everybody wants to be amazing" because of how contrived the society he lives in is, it is easier for one who is truly pretending, to stay unnoticed.

    "Change your mind and nothing changes." has created the image and semblance of a personality but without true ability to think and feel freely without guidance of social norms.
