Apathetic Way to Be
by Relient K



Yeah, Im not angry
& no im not upset,
its taken me awhile
but this is what ive learned,
emotional attachment is really not a threat
when im simply not concerned

The things i take on
I soon shrug off
'cause i know no one
will ever be content
with the way things are
or with what they've got
so i've given up and now im just indifferent.

You will laugh at me
like im not happy
with anything, anytime, anywhere
and the half of me's all about apathy,
and the other half just doesnt care

I must admit all the words you spoke
i hated 'cause i just dont see how i can be motivated
im left to break a sweat over a dying race
it seems our fate
is something we've already embraced

Yeah, Im not angry
and no im not upset
its taken me awhile
but this is what i've learned
emotional attachment it really not a threat
when im simply not concerned

You will laugh at me
like im not happy
with anything, anytime, anywhere
and the half of me's all about apathy
and the other half just doesnt care

Yeah, bein apathetic's a pathetic way to be
[i dont care]
What matters to you does not matter to me
[cause i dont care]

So take a wild guess
it's like i just couldn't care less
if all the things you find impressive
just blew up and made those messes
that you'll frantically repair
like kissing leopards at the fair
and all the while youre unaware
for this, you shouldnt care
but its so hard to see the reality
that the end will be the end of things
and our hearts are all we get to bring
so let's go ahead make this worth something

You will laugh at me
like im not happy
with anything anytime anywhere
and the half of me's all about apathy
and the other half just doesnt care
[x1]

I'm well aware that everything
is a cry from all right
im well aware that all of us
at times can be too uptight
and possibly the remedy is a dose of apathy
You point your finger at you
and ill point mine right back at me.
