John Reuben – Cool The Underdog lyrics

Expecting an epic ending
Most underdogs wind up not winning
Believe anything in the midst of the moment
Selfish motives looked heroic
I speak vaguely to keep significance
Because it's bigger than specifics
Man doesn't want Heaven or Hell
All he wants is to live for himself
Unhealthy false sense of self worth and entitlement
Change as quick as status permits
No matter where you end up you won't be content
Blame your surroundings
Blamed your surroundings
Because it was easy
An underdog instinctively greedy and if you ever succeed
You'll be equally needy

The thrill of proving the world wrong is finally gone
You should move on
The thrill of proving the world wrong is finally gone
You could move on

Celebrate and exaggerate the story
What happens when it ends up not working
No rags to riches no fame or glory
I speak on behalf of the silent majority
Hard working with a pocket full of earnings
That don't amount to much
Keep your head up
If success is just a fool's luck we're stuck
But even the successful don't get what they want

The thrill of proving the world wrong is finally gone
You should move
The thrill is finally gone
You could move on

According to the earth's standards
Some of us are more important than others
Hey I guess life really isn't fair
And sometimes clich? S are what you need to hear
But you were busy hiding behind sarcasm politics and fashion
A little too late to make a statement
Because you couldn't figure out the way to make it
I hate to interrupt your fantasy but that chip on your shoulder is self pity
Self awareness became unhealthy close your eyes and enjoy the scenery
If genius can't change the world he might as well leave it
If genius can't change the world he might as well critique it
