Oh, yeah?

or maybe: )

I don't mind not understanding me
For clearly this is where I must be
I don't want to hear that it's all gonna be
All right

I don't mind chasing away the pain
For maybe I'll forget to complain
I just want to see that it's all gonna be
All right

I don't mind all of the stupid shit
I just don't want to be part of it
I just can't believe that we're all gonna be
All right

So here's to an empty promise
And here's to an empty plate
Now leave me alone and honest
Before my truth turns to hate
I just don't believe understanding will be
All right

The useless and empty phrases
Encrusting our minds with sores
And filling our empty spaces
We're all just society's whores
I just don't believe that propriety will be
All right

I just don't believe all this fighting can be
All right

I just don't believe that we'll all ever be
All right
