Who's the captain of the ship i think it's sinking
I know i know i don't know what i know what was i thinking

Paper dolls
Here for you folding
Schools like malls
That are all closing
Afraid to dance
Don't talk to strangers
Avoid romance
Read what the sign says

Parental guidance is advised
Another one of us survives

Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
My life was easier at five
Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
As for me i will get by
What was i thinking

I can't make up my own mind
Can't even make my bed
Yeah i should clean up my act
But first i'll clean up my head
I'm lacking confidence
I don't apply myself
Be sure check up on me
To check yourself

'cause we're paper dolls
Here for you folding
Schools like malls
That are all closing
Afraid to dance
Don't talk to strangers
Avoid romance
Read what the sign says

Parental guidance is surprised
Another one of us survives

Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
My life was easier at five
Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
As for me i will get by

As bad as it is
As bad as it is
We'll get thru
We'll get thru
We'll get thru

Cause we're paper dolls
Here for you folding
Schools like malls
That are all closing
Afraid to dance
Don't talk to strangers
Avoid romance

Hey maryjane
In certain places
Blows the pain
Right off our faces
Don't talk to dirt
Or catch a bullet
For once was right
Just take that bullshit

Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
My life was easier at five
Blah, blah, blah, blah
Feels so good to be alive
Blah, blah, blah, blah
As for me i will get by
Blah blah blah
As for me i will survive
What was i thinking
What was i thinking
What was i thinking
What was i thinking

Growing up (what was i thinking)
Is getting old (what was i thinking)
Growing up (what was i thinking)
Is getting up (what was i thinking)
Thinking
