Nothing Personal – Transparent lyrics

I am a snowflake
Individually unique
One of a kind, and nothing is
The way I am
You are a raindrop
Dull and boring
All the same as those that surround you
Nothing special


If I were to ask you why
Your answers would not match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell


The tension that shakes on us
I can rub off like fairy dust
There's nothing that hard you're going through

Catastrophe
Is what I see
When I review your public acts
Your basic stance
Makes my feet point away
But your approach method keeps me crawling back
They call you a jerk
They call you a douchebag
But I feel it's much simpler than that
You're just a coward
With alot of potential
But afraid to show the world who you really are

If I were to ask you why
Your answers wouldn't match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell
You can intimidate the rest
But it's nothing worthy of impress
I can predict every move you make
Why does how they view point you
Mean so much bullcrap to you?
Just be yourself, don't care what they think

Like a 7, i'm dominant
And like a king, i'm prominently
Seated over you cowards and your incompetence
It's not winter, spring forward
And resist the clique, outshine the bullcrap
It's nonsense
Take a hammer and knock this
And like my guitar, i'll pluck the strings off your ego
Free throw
If you had a mind, you know i'd shine right over that
Don't mess with NP, 'cause you know we fight back

If I were to ask you why
Your answers wouldn't match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell
You can intimidate the rest
But it's nothing worthy of impress
I can predict every move you make

They're not your friends
Rebellion is

    In a general perspective, this song is about being yourself. The lyrics are quite vague, therefore the listener can relate to it in any way they please, and this song can tell their story as much as it tells the narrators. But to break things down, Nothing Personal's front-man Anthony J. "Curly" Mauro wrote this song in college, for a songwriting class he was taking. During his time in college, he met alot of people who majored in things they weren't passionate about for the sake of money, appeasing their parents, and to conform to society's 9-5 job norm.
