   i'm so confused

i don't know why

i need to know

these useless things

filling my brain

making me strain

to understand these useless things

don't you realize i'm much too tired to listen

thinking about things more important

they push out the words you say

now you call my name

expecting me to answer

i don't know

i'm lost i say

maybe i'll get it tomorrow

but you know i won't

because the work keeps me up all night

so today you just say i'm lost

in a world far from reality

(but i like it there)

i'm so confused

i don't know why

i need to know

these useless things

filling my life

with realities strain

to know these useless things
