lyrics

tell me again what you hope to accomplish
because if i'm being honest i do not understand

tell me again how you're planning to beat them
by being as much like them as you possibly can

something you tossed out is everything i want
something you're dismissive of is the reason i wake up
you say "you can't be soft if you wanna be punk"
fine, cool, whatever
thanks for clearing that up

ugh

tell me again about how heavy the crown is
about the weight of the burden
of being white and male

tell me again what you told all the people
you've ever had underneath you
about how you meant well

something you tossed out is everything i want
something you're dismissive of is the reason i wake up
if people talk shit and say "you're not one of us"
i guess we can stop pretending now that i ever was

いい天気ですね?
