loser of the year award lyrics – boy sets fire

always had the dream
now i have the action
spent my time hearing “this is wrong”
broken down disasters smoke filled empty rooms
and life of eye to eye to head to head

you’ll never understand what this means to me

not for approval, not yours anyway
arrange by the numbers
arrange by your casualty
defined by a submission to a common sense
that never had anything to do with me

as friends are made and lost
i always look back smiling
never moved by struggle fate or cost
i’d rather stay a loser
and laugh at common sense
then rely on safety nets and reminisce

you’ll never understand what this means to me

not for approval, not yours anyway
arrange by the numbers
arrange by your casualty
defined by a submission to a common sense
that never had anything to do with me

as they struggle for mediocrity
