[Verse 1]
Sixteen years looking up at the blackboard
I don’t even know how to read
I got pills to make the hamster wheels turn faster
But the monkey’s in the driver’s seat

[Pre-chorus]
And now I tear myself apart about everything at once
I miss my good old lack of self esteem
You can take out the wax and tie me to the mast
I gotta hear the sirens scream
Don’t listen to me
I just need a good night’s sleep

[Chorus]
And you keep me up all night
Can’t talk right
I’m falling into my clothes
And even though I’m feeling like death
I can’t be upset
‘Cause I finally know

[Verse 2]
You can document the teenage wildlife
Psychoanalyze the modern man
You can classify ’em all by bloodtype
But you’re never gonna understand

[Pre-chorus]
What if panic were the right reaction
To the anno domini milieu
I’m too sleepy for the main distraction
Downtown lights could never glow like you
I’m going to sleep

[Chorus]
And you keep me up all night
Can’t talk right
I’m falling into my clothes
And even though I’m feeling like death
I can’t be upset
‘Cause I finally know

[Post-chorus]
I don’t want to be an animal (oh no)
But you’re making this hard for me
But I don’t want to be an animal (oh no)
But you don’t wanna go

[Chorus]
And you keep me up all night
Can’t talk right
I’m falling into my clothes
And even though I’m feeling like death
I can’t be upset
‘Cause I finally know
‘Cause I finally know
‘Cause I finally know
You’ll finally know
