about

This is about breaking free from some thoughts that restrained me.

lyrics

For five years I've been fighting
High school expectations that I've grown to hate
And they've always loomed in the shadows
At times when I felt like that it was too late
To pull myself up by my bootstraps
Because my life wasn't following the script
And all that I worked for came short
That I hadn't lived right; that my wings were clipped

I've been trying to look at it different
And I'll admit: the blame's on me too
For falling in line with the system
I was seventeen. What was I to do?
And maybe those people aren't all bad
I recognize how true this could be
But I don't really care about you now
Because you never cared about me

And so we'll stop in the mall
And both put on a face
Of faked interest and wonder
About where we are in the race

But I don't give a shit about your brand new Volkswagon
and I don't give a shit about your apartment in Brooklyn
and I don't give a shit about your grad school applications
and I don't give a shit about your selfie on the beach
and I don't give a shit about your nostalgia for high school
and I don't give a shit about your Buzzfeed and wine
and I don't give a shit about your Carribbean photos
and I don't give a shit about your opinion at all

It's taken five years to realize
that there is no right way down this road
And the only thing we might ever share
Is an area code
