Grizzly Bear 03:12
If you're walking in the woods Out there by yourself Bring your gun 'cause if you see one You cannot run You will be done No it won't be fun You will be done They are 10 feet tall With gigantic claws and 600 pounds 42 sharp teeth Grizzly Bears Oh and they can run 35 miles per hour And they eat their young Yes they'll eat you, too Grizzly Bears Good luck with whistles Good luck with chemicals Good luck with putting your food away And avoiding their cubs If there's little food And you are near Now you're the food There should be fear They are 10 feet tall With gigantic claws and 600 pounds 42 sharp teeth Grizzly Bears Oh and they can run 35 miles per hour And they eat their young Yes they'll eat you, too Grizzly Bears

I want to be like the really cool people in the IKEA catalog They're so assured, so happy, so trendy, so cosmopolitan I want to rise until I hit the ceiling I want to fall but enjoy the feeling I want a Lexus in my driveway for Christmas with a bow on top of it I'll drive it up and down my gentrified neighborhood, I'll show it off a bit I want to be admired and respected I think I'll buy power and get elected Stop comparing I think I'm wearing myself out Stop comparing I think I'm wearing myself out Stop comparing yourself to others It seems that everyone is doing much better than me on social media They're getting married, becoming doctors, even paying off their student loan debt Today I changed 11 diapers And I tried to dust the ceiling I'm so impressed that the human race just continues to surpass me I better get on the ball, they're so fast, they might just lap me I need to find a cure for cancer It's time that I came up with the answer Stop comparing I think I'm wearing myself out Stop comparing I think I'm wearing myself out Stop comparing yourself to others

No one seemed to understand you We'd pretend, but didn't have a clue Maybe you were on a different level but probably you were just as lost as all of us Maybe it was just me Maybe it was just me I know few seemed to respect you Some pretended, but they didn't get you Maybe that's really what you wanted but probably you felt worthless like many of us Maybe it was just me Maybe it was just me I know it sounds cliche but you made a difference every day No one seemed to understand it Didn't pretend, didn't know what to do Maybe the world really needs you But probably the world wasn't ready for you Maybe it was just me Maybe it was just me I know that many respect you You pretended, but did you realize it? I don't know what you really wanted other than thrive, other than let your soul shine other than let your soul shine other than let your soul shine Maybe it was all of us Maybe it was all of us I know it sounds cliche but you made a difference every day

Pretending 03:54
Superman, I bet you could kick his butt The President, you can speak much better than him You doubt yourself, I doubt you know, that everyone else, doubts himself 'cause everyone you know is pretending That CEO, made billions with one lucky choice George Washington, was just at the right place at the right time You doubt yourself, I doubt you know, that everyone else, doubts himself 'cause everyone you know is pretending He's in charge, just because no one stepped up But don't you know, that you are the lucky one "I can't do this," you say to yourself everyday But did you know that everyone else says the exact same thing 'cause everyone you know is pretending

You can talk about the weather and the birds and the bees You can talk about your job and maybe grandma's knees You can talk about food Oh it tastes so good But there's one subject Well you never should! Don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family You can talk about how you all don't talk anymore You can talk about the game Ok what's the score? You could say meaningless things Like "have a good day." You could even bring up Jesus and I'm sure it'd be ok but don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family It's not a good idea Someone might just get shot The best case scenario just might be estrangement so don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family

Going through life always looking forward to the next thing to worry about Getting things done but yet you are not satisfied You don't know where to go next It seems that Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Why does it matter if it is perfect if it's only temporary? Looking through the telescope is why you feel so darn insignificant Everyone and everything Everyone and everything Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you You say it's pointless 'cause you have no effect you don't want to get out of bed Suddenly you realize you're wrong because you love others and they love you too It doesn't matter that Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you Everyone and everything go on without you
