I was a young boy that had big plans
Now I'm just another shitty old man
I don't have fun and I hate everything
The world owes me, so **** you
Glory days don't
Mean **** to me
I drank a six pack of apathy
Life's a ***** and so am I
The world owes me, so **** you
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimistic point of view
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimistic point of view
I've decomposed, yet my gut's getting fat
Oh my god I'm turning out like my dad
I'm always rude
I've got a bad attitude
The world owes me, so **** you
The wife's a nag and the kid's ****ing up
I don't have sex 'cause I can't get it up
I'm just a grouch sitting on the couch
The world owes me, so **** you
