about

My first "filler" track, and ironically one of my most popular, though that's probably just because I say "duh."

lyrics

It goes without saying that we're crazy fools
Trying to think that we can do everything, change the rules
Of logic, gin and tonic for your crazy mind
Ignoring all the rules that you're trying to find
Build up all of your plans for a perfect land
And facilitate change through a crazy rock band
There are lies, bad lies, and statistics we make,
But what you're doing takes the cake.
Think you're 700 1337 (too leet)
For all the humans and the stuff we've been given
Like the comic book guy with his collection of PEZ
But in the end, nobody ever cares what he says!
I don't care how much time you spend thinking of life
The things that go wrong and how you can make it right
The world's just perfect if we're all like you
But we're not... duh?

Overanalyze life today
Overanalyze everything your mommas say
Let me put this up to you in the form of a question:
"How we gonna get out of this mess we've made?"
Overanalyze truth be told
While the people in the world keep getting old
Let me put this up to you in the form of a question:
"Why you wanna build a nonconformity mold?"

People all are different yet we wanna be the same
Yet too many of us play the popularity game
But maybe, just maybe, that's the people they are
While the rest of us take our time to smell the new car
But you whine and complain that they're not themselves
Tell them to be different just like everybody else
They should walk like you, talk like you,
But you and I both know they can't be you!
Maybe conforming is how they don't conform
Maybe not conforming is how you conform
Maybe this whole idea of individuality
Needs to be defenestrated before it become part of me
And don't write me off, or can you not comprehend
Ideas not coming from out your own head, and--
(Hey guys, I really don't like this line here, can we skip it?)

No rhyme to my reason, little reason to my rhyme
So let me at least try to be serious this time
Our cultural philosophy has gotten kinda whack
With postmodernism, Nietzsche, and You Don't Know Jack
But if there are no absolutes, then even that won't hold
To your own ideas about the truth being told
Freedom of faith is the greatest to confide
But who get priority when two freedoms collide?
Fair and unbiased has lost its way back
We can have any color, just so long as it's black
It's time to look hard at the old way of things
But if you only replace it more chaos it brings
Questioning authority makes cynical and jaded
Questioning life makes one tired and wasted
Questioning the truth can be bad for your health
So before you question everything, question yourself
