lyrics

we don't know what we'll be when we grow up
hope to know before our time is up
we try to be realistic, but we're so damn artistic
all these dreams, wake me up

we're quitting jobs and going back to school
we're learning skills and sharpening our tools
let's toast the over-qualified, do you want scrambled or fried?
sugar, honey, take me for a fool

we don't know what we'll be when we grow up
hope to know before our time is up
perfect prey for cults and kooks, we're banking on a fluke
can i invite you to my show?

this artwork is big and black
there's an explanation on the back
wake up feeling so ambitious, but mama's food is so delicious
mercy, take me home

take me home
take me home
i said mercy mercy mercy
take me home

they're coughing on about ladders and careers
we're saving up to run away from here
and if it turns out life's a bitch, then we can marry rich
bite our tongue and volunteer

we don't know what we'll be when we grow up
hope to know before our time is up
we try to be realistic, but we're so damn artistic
all these dreams
all these dreams
all these dreams, wake me up
