Everyone wants for friendships
Everyone sues for acceptance
Everyone desires not to be left alone
On the dust-heap
Of yesterday’s news

Everyone feels they deserve better
Everyone believes they are worth it
Everyone wants to be right in the middle
Of the latest thing
Going on

So that they may share in the glory
And claim the bright idea themselves
To be the center of attention

No matter what you say,
You’re that way
Whether you realize it at once
Or only after the crowd is gone.
