Yeah, I'm not angry and, no, I'm not upset
It's taken me awhile, but this is what I've learned
Emotional attachment is really not a threat
When I'm simply not concerned

The things that I take on, I soon shrug off
'Cause I know no one will ever be content
With the way things are or with what they've got
So I've given up and now I'm just indifferent

You will laugh at me like I'm not happy
With anything, anytime, anywhere
And the half of me's all about apathy
And the other half just doesn't care

I must admit, all the words you spoke, I hated
'Cause I don't see just how I can be motivated
Enough to break a sweat over a dying race
It seems our fate is something we've already embraced

Yeah, I'm not angry and, no, I'm not upset
It's taken me awhile, but this is what I've learned
Emotional attachment is really not a threat
When I'm simply not concerned

You will laugh at me like I'm not happy
With anything, anytime, anywhere
And the half of me's all about apathy
And the other half just doesn't care

Yeah, being apathetic's a pathetic way to be
But I don't care
What matters to you does not matter to me
'Cause I don't care

So take a wild guess
It's like I just couldn't care less
If all the things you find impressive
Just blew up and made those messes

That you'll frantically repair
Like it's a life or death affair
And all the while you're unaware
For this, you really shouldn't care

But it's so hard to see the reality
That the end will be the end of things
And our hearts are all we'll get to bring
So let's go ahead and make them worth something

You will laugh at me like I'm not happy
With anything, anytime, anywhere
And the half of me's all about apathy
And the other half just doesn't care

You will laugh at me like I'm not happy
With anything, anytime, anywhere
And the half of me's all about apathy
And the other half just doesn't care

I'm well aware that everything
Is a far cry from alright
I'm well aware that all of us
Can, at times, be too uptight

And possibly the remedy
Is a dose of apathy
You point your finger at you
I'll point mine right back at me
