There was a sense of disappointment as we left the mall
All the young people look the same
Wearing their masks of cool and indifference
Commerce dressed up as rebellion

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be hurt, we can't be hurt

Drink to forget your blues on the weekend
Think about more things to buy
The TV taught me how to sulk and love nothing
And how to grow my hair long

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be hurt, we can't be hurt
We can't be hurt

So why do you go picking fights that you'll lose?
When you have entertainment
When you have things to pass the time

So why do you go thinking thoughts that are above you?
You can be happy, just play dumb
You can be happy, just play dumb

Well I was brave and unique
Intelligent, a snowflake
I could have been a hero
No one can be trusted over the age of fourteen

Tattoo our arms, Converse shoes
Cynical, we still do it
We tell ourselves we're different
I've gotten so good at lying to myself

All my pain and honor is used up
All my guns are rusted

So when you gonna realize
(Pop songs)
Those are not your wrongs to right?
(Won't change)
Have another line, have another drink
(The government, the government)

I am a martyr, I just need a motive
I am a martyr, I just need a cause
I'm a believer, I just need a moment
I'm a believer, I just need a cause

We're finding it hard to break the mold
We're finding it hard to be alone
We're finding it hard to have time by ourselves
We have nothing at all to say

Uniform
Uniform
Uniform

There was a sense of disappointment as we left the mall
All the young people looked the same
