I tried and tried and no one knew.
I cried and died for very, very few.
It doesn't even matter.

I boldly flew where no one dared.
I faced the crowd but nobody was there.
It doesn't even matter.

I wrote a song of hope, but no one knew to listen.
I fought the creatures no one else could see.

I made a change. I followed rules.
I got in line like all the other fools.
It doesn't even matter.

I wore a smile, I cut my hair.
I said hello. But no one even cared.
It doesn't even matter.

Follow your dream, they say, uh huh, and then they sell you toothpaste.
It's all for sale. They don't know how it feels.

Oh, what can I do? I can't just run and hide.
When so much is wrong, it would be wrong to let it slide.
I'm afraid to face another day,
And turn around and say,
It doesn't even matter!

Where is the road, the light, the way,
The path you're supposed to follow?
The goal, the inner soul, the reason why?
