Lost in my thoughts again, I never know what to say
Sitting under the oak tree in my front yard playing Pokémon games
We had so much fun doing stuff like that
Pacing metaphorically through the Midwest
My heart drags on the bottom of the ocean
Like a silver fox prancing under the desert sun
I forgot to turn in my homework

The summer came to an end
When the autumn leaves fall on the winter grass
You keep pretending and I'm still sad
Riding down to the Waffle House on our fixed-gear bikes
I watched the sun rise countless times
I think I lost my library card

I'm still sad

This is the last time I will use your name in a song
And I can't believe all the time that's gone by (All the time that's gone by)
This is the last time that I'll ever hold your hand
Do you remember those nights on the front porch?

Across from my parents' house (My parents' house)
Behind our school (Our school)
How can I remember (Remember)
Not to cry when I'm so sad?

You're so dramatic

"If newborn babies could speak
They would be the most intelligent beings on planet earth"
"I only apply to the sixth amendment"
"Gravity is the greatest film of our generation"
"There is no nutrients in our food anymore
Or in our soil, or in our water"
"When the first animal went extinct that should've been a sign"
"How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?"

"How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?"
"How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?"

  • This song parodies Midwestern emo bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s, such as American Football. The lyrics satirize the lovesick lyrics of many emo bands, while the title is a parody of the long song titles commonly used by these bands.
  • The outro quotes multiple tweets made by actor Jaden Smith, which received went viral due to their nonsensical content.
