Mean



You, with your words like knivesAnd swords and weapons that you use against meYou have knocked me off my feet againGot me feeling like a nothingYou, with your voice like nails on a chalkboardCalling me out when I'm woundedYou picking on the weaker man
Well you can take me down with just one single blowbut you don't know, what you don't know...
Someday I'll be living in a big ol' cityAnd all you're ever going to be is meanSomeday I'll be big enough so you can't hit meAnd all you're ever going to be is meanWhy you gotta be so mean?
You, with your switching sidesAnd your wildfire lies and your humiliationYou have pointed out my flaws againAs if I don't already see themI walk with my head downTrying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress youI just wanna feel okay again
I bet you got pushed aroundSomebody made you coldBut the cycle ends right nowCause you can't lead me down that roadAnd you don't know, what you don't know...
Someday I'll be living in a big ol' cityAnd all you're ever going to be is meanSomeday I'll be big enough so you can't hit meAnd all you're ever going to be is meanWhy you gotta be so mean?
And I can see you years from now in a barTalking over a football gameWith that same big loud opinionBut nobody's listeningWashed up and ranting about the same old bitter thingsDrunk and grumbling on about how I can't singBut all you are is mean
All you are is meanAnd a liar, and pathetic, and alone in lifeAnd mean, and mean, and mean, and mean
But someday I'll be living in a big ol' cityAnd all you're ever going to be is mean, yeah yeahSomeday I'll be big enough so you can't hit meAnd all you're ever going to be is meanWhy you gotta be so mean?
Someday I'll be living in a big ol' cityAnd all you're ever going to be is mean, yeah yeahSomeday I'll be big enough so you can't hit meAnd all you're ever going to be is meanWhy you gotta be so mean?
