lyrics

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
