The usual morons were fighting outside that place 
Inside the posing was rife 
I wasn't ready like you to accept them 
As peers for the rest of my life 
Poised for a picture that no one was taking 
You'd hang on their worlds as a rule 
I'd never bought that but still was afraid 
To get caught on the wrong side of cool 
Time to go sober again 
Same old faces and nothing is new 
Leaving today I'd no right to go say 
That I hate what they're doing to you 
The only one you'd ever wanted to be was yourself 
But they had to have more 
They told you to change what you thought to combine 
With the image that most of them wore 
You said if I stayed I might win their approval 
And that would mean so much to you 
I'd say I'll be back but for now all I know 
Is I need something different to do
