Oh I could bore you with the truth
About an uneventful youth
Or you could get that rap from someone else
And I could make an observation
If you are the voice of a generation
But I'm too self absorbed to give it clout

And I, I don't really care about
Anybody else when I haven't got my whole life figured out
Cause when you're young and bored and 24
And you don't know who you are
Nobody's
No hope
And it's hard to come of age
I think it's a problem
And it never goes my way
And no, I am so self-obsessed
I guess, but there's no hope
But I hope it's just a phase
Or I'll grow-oh-oh-oh

Oh I could look for inspiration
Find it in the charm of an English nation
But wouldn't that be cheap and ill-informed
And I could bet you don't believe me
If I said a cape from deep within me
But I promise you I'm telling you the truth

And I, I don't really care about
Anybody else when I haven't got my whole life figured out
Cause when you're 24 and young and bored
And you don't know who you are
Nobody's
No hope
And it's hard to come of age
I think it's a problem
And it never goes my way
And no, I am so self-obsessed
I guess, but there's no hope
But I hope it's just a phase
Or I'll grow

Well I wish that I was comfortable in my own skin
But the whole thing feels like an exercise
And trying to be someone I would rather not be
I'd try to second guess if you would be approving
I find my life ever so moving
Keen wide-eyed and unassuming
No hope

There is no hope
But there's desperately
No hope, but there's definitely
No hope if you don't believe me
Oh, oh, oh
And there is no hope
But there's desperately
No hope, but there's definitely
No hope if you don't believe me
Oh, oh, oh

But I, I don't really care about
Anybody else when I haven't got my whole life figured out
Cause when you're 24 and young and bored
And you don't know who you are
Nobody's
No hope
And it's hard to come of age
I think it's a problem
And it never goes my way
And no, I am so self-obsessed
I guess, but there's no hope
But I hope it's just a phase
Or I'll grow-oh-oh-oh

There is no hope
And it never goes my way
And no, I am so self-obsessed
I guess, but there's no hope
But I hope it's just a phase
Or I'll grow-oh-oh-oh

    I think that 'no hope' refers to the fact that in your youth you haven't really discovered yourself as an individual, and its hard to work things out for yourself and you can't see how future is going to pan out. It makes you feel helpless and insecure ... Without a paddle...
