[Verse 1]
It's like I've failed my teens
Now I'm failing my twenties
High on anxiety
Low on attention
Thrown into a world
Where everyone acts cold
Nobody mentioned
There's a million and one things
That we'll never make sense of

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Tell me
You ever feel let down
'Cause I can't stand it
I won't sit down
While underhanded
Self satisfied clowns
Ruin everything

[Chorus]
I don't know why
I keep my mouth shut most of the time
When I burn inside
Regret sets in
Now I'm thinking up
Perfect responses
That will change your mind
And I'd change the world
One person at a time

[Verse 2]
Remember when things
Used to happen to me?
Yeah I hated that too
Short on motivation
To step on dry land
Every piece of news
Is as bad as the last
Slow motion
Crumbling to dust
Are we numb to the outrage
I don't want to be defenceless

[Pre-Chorus 2]
How much
Can you tolerate
Cos I can't stand this
Adolescent state
While I wait
Til the damage is irreversible

[Chorus]
I don't know why
I keep my mouth shut most of the time
When I burn inside
Regret sets in
Now I'm thinking up
Perfect responses
That will change your mind
And I'd change the world
One person at a time

[Interlude: Alto sax]

[Chorus]
I don't know why
I keep my mouth shut most of the time
When I burn inside
Regret sets in
Now I'm thinking up
Perfect responses
That will change your mind
And I'd change the world
One person at a time

[Outro]
Alright, that's good, innit?
