lyrics

When I was young this world taught me, through its schools and through its writings, I controlled the things around me with the sheer force of my will.
And I heard the very same thing on TV and from my family, ‘You’re the best and you are blameless, so go out and take your fill.’

But as the years went by it didn’t make much sense, we’re all weak with ignorance, controlling nothing but the way we act with one another.

So goodbye, cause it’s over
I loved you, but it’s over
Just an unrequited love song to myself.

When I got a little older, I saw things that made me wonder what was wrong with this whole world, so I fell in with a crew.
Yeah we talked a lot of bullshit about how we were so different, but in the end it’s still all egos dressed up with some old tattoos.

Since then, I’ve found we’re all guilty before each
For everyone and everything
And myself a greater criminal than all the others.

So goodbye, cause it’s over
I loved you, but it’s over
Just an unrequited love song to myself.

When I was young this world taught me life had value in utility, and each breath it could be measured by important things we do.
And I remember feeling excited about a tribe where they sent old men off to die alone in the ice when their productive years were through.

It makes me wonder now, is this the best that we can hope
Living like machines strung out on dope
Clicking parts and whirring gears, oblivious to one another?

So goodbye, cause it’s over
I loved you, but it’s over
Just an unrequited love song to myself.
