Know It All


Look at the world in disbelief

You used to follow - now you lead

College has enlightened you

And you are proud to be different

And like different bands - different types

You ain't nobody's fool

It's like certain bands remind you of someone you hated

'Cause they didn't wear the right clothing

And there's only one true fashion

Alot of the bands on the college charts are great bands

Until they get signed. Then you hate them

It's such bullshit - you used to love them you hypocrite

I remember you and I listening to bands that we liked

Only the songs mattered to you

But now you're a D.J. and preaching that hype

"Corporate Rock Sucks"

"You know, college radio enlightens you"

It's supposed to serve as a means to expose new bands

Without prejudice, but it makes no sense

Safe harbor for the underground

'Til the alternative becomes the popular sound

The bands are good 'til they make enough cash

To eat food and get a pad

Then they're sold out and their music is clich©

Because talent's exclusive to bands without pay

Know it all - Did you really listen to that song?

Could you ever write what you call wrong?
