I grew up in the 90's at least that's what I tried Looking for ways to be satisfied I went to San Diego to try out my luck Came back twelve months later and again I was stuck I felt like a goldfish stuck in a bowl I was waiting for something that I could control After two thousand no longer a kid The world didn't end but something else did When my father takes off I'm already nineteen He wasn't as happy as I thought he seemed If this is my screenplay I don't like my role These are the things that you just can't control Although I feel a lot older I'm just twenty three If you're looking for answers don't come to me Instead of a future I've got a guitar But dreaming out loud won't get me far Still I feel I'm ready for rock 'n roll There might be something that I can control By the time I hit thirty I'll have enough Of being a twentysomething in love My friends will all be married or they will be gone Me, I'll still be wondering what's going on If that's what it takes then I'll sell my soul As long as there's something that I can control One day I'll wake up and I'll be 38 Doing the things I used to hate The trick to forget the bigger picture is when You look at everything in close-up as often as you can Our revolution is covered in mold There's only so much you can control This is no anthem because anthems are proud And pride isn't something that this is about I shouldn't care shouldn't care But I do and that's sometimes too hard to bear Still walking the same road with my shoes full of holes Just waiting for something that we can control If I ever reach fifty or sixty five Too early to tell if I'll still be alive We were born in the 80's and now we are here My generation's dream will disappear I'm at a graveyard passing the rows A silent surrender we'll never get close This is my story you swallowed it whole About us feeling the need to be in control
