Do you worry that you're not liked
How long till you break
You're happy cause you smile
But how much can you fake
An ordinary boy an ordinary name
But ordinary's just not good enough today

Alone I'm thinking
Why is superman dead
Is it in my head
We'll just laugh instead
You worry about the weather and
Whether or not you should hate

Are you worried about your faith
Kneel down and obey
You're happy you're in love
You need someone to hate
An ordinary girl an ordinary waist
But ordinary's just not good enough today

Doesn't anybody ever know that the
World's a subway...

    I think it's talking about how kids today are focused on things like tv and video games and have lost all the old values like what Superman had. You know, being a gentleman and saving the world instead of being rude and crude like so many of today's kids are.
