Didn't think I'd have to choose
Didn't think I'd wear brown shoes
Didn't think that I'd ever have to read about this in the news
You gonna have a go

Never exist without being generic
You'll have to impress our bovine public
You'd never exist if you wasn't generic

Then what you say will always mean nothing to me

A year's a long time to be doing nothing with your life
I heard you felt alert
Well I'm hoping that it hurt
'Cause we've spent too much time in groundwork
To be ground into the dirt by those

Who'd never exist without being generic
You have to impress our bovine public
You'd never exist if you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress our bovine public
I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret the one thing I've done
But you would never exist without us

So maybe I do
