lyrics

Poor you
Reality's hit you like a pound of feathers
Is it getting better or
Is the weight of the pillow on your head too much?
I know that life is hard
Hell I'm a walking example of how to play your cards wrong
But I get by from good friends who stay in touch

Poor us
We're a part of a narcissistic generation
Overfed with attention
Where the kids in glass houses only wanna go and play in the sand
I know that wherever we go
These pitiful partiers will never fly solo
Despite the word on the street
Life's not that bad

What's going on?
Where did everybody go?
It's like I see you every day
Every day you're reaching a new low
Like it or not, looks like I'm here to stay
Cuz I took off my PA plates today

Sorry about that time I missed your birthday
Sorry about that time I missed your game
At least I saw you at the show we had last weekend
I'm so glad that you all came

Poor me
I'm becoming redundant like a broken record
Is it getting better
It's insignificant, cuz I'm indifferent today
I haven't done much with my life so far
That's what I'm playing with a full deck of sympathy cards
So come on over
We'll gamble our lives away

What's going on?
This place is falling apart
Can't look you straight in the eye
Cuz it breaks my heart
Like it or not, looks like I'm here to stay
Cuz I took off my PA plates today

You're sitting in a car down in east-coast-burg
You're singing in your car but you don't know the words
You're trying so hard to be like all the other girls
Like you're going somewhere slow
