Last night I took a chance
Turns out that I was wrong
It happens like that every fucking time

Yeah, yeah ... much more terrible things have happened
And I'm living a charmed life
I wasn't born with the right to not be fine

Shut your fucking mouth and be the pawn
Everyone expects you to
It's awesome that you're awesome but you're wrong
And I wish you'd go away so that I can just remember you
As the amazing fucking person that you are

It's hard to think what else to say
I've said it like a hundred times (a hundred ways)
I'd just like to be allowed to be what I think I want to be

And everyone keeps saying
I'm the best at something else
It's cute but you're not on track to make a difference/matter/take effect

Shut your fucking mouth and be the pawn
Everyone expects you to
It's awesome that you're awesome but you're wrong
And I wish you'd go away so that I can just remember you
As the amazing fucking person that you are

And I'm probably misinterpreting
I'm probably killing it
I'm probably so self conscious
I think you're probably feelin' it

The shit that plagues the world
I'm the only asshole dealing it
It'd probably go away
If I'd only quit revealing it

Shut your fucking mouth and be the pawn
Everyone expects you to
It's awesome that you're awesome but you're wrong
And I wish you'd go away so that I can just remember you
As the amazing fucking person that you are
