Let's listen to our favorite band
Write their lyrics in the sand
Because we can't think up our own
Let's use their creative songs
Singing how our own soul longs
Or how the world makes us feel alone

But I'll write my own poetry
Make everyone around me see
That I don't need some CD
Or to worship singers on MTV
To know what it's like to feel
Because I know I'm much more real
I can use my own words to reveal
The deepest parts of me

Rocking out to RJA
They have lots of things to say
That you can't say yourself
You don't know real emotion
How to word real devotion

I'm going to say it myself
But I'll write my own poetry
Make everyone around me see
That I don't need some CD
Or to worship singers on MTV
To know what it's like to feel
Because I know I'm much more real
I can use my own words to reveal
The deepest parts of me

What happened to our generation
We think we can receive some salvation
Worshiping artists through imitation
Leaving behind our imagination

We have no idea how to create
Our own thoughts we desecrate
Your own attitude just irritates
And I'll still go if you wait
Because there are some things I need to state

But I'll write my own poetry
Make everyone around me see
That I don't need some CD
Or to worship singers on MTV
To know what it's like to feel
Because I know I'm much more real
I can use my own words to reveal
The deepest parts of me

Deeper than me
Deeper than you
Deeper than me
I'm going to reveal it all
