lyrics

It's hard to hate what you understand,
and hard to understand what you hate
it's hard to live a lion's life
when you're a kitten underneath
sometimes I wanna go on a killing spree
or cuddle with a knife
but that's just too dramatic
and it will not help me sleep at night

So, hey there friends and hey there family,
I hope I grow up
and I can one day make you proud of me

Life really isn't so complex,
you just eat, sleep, and repeat
it really doesn't get as grim
as I can make myself believe

If I treat my life like an anchor
then I am doomed to sink
I have the power to be happy
just as long as I can think

So I'll say, "hey there friends and hey there family,
I hope I grow up
and I can one day make you proud of me"

And I know it's strange enough to always be alone,
but I don't want to spend my days always growing up

Because life is rather beautiful,
you can love, hate, hope and dream
it really doesn't get as grim
as I can make myself believe

If I treat my life like a buoy
then I can surely float,
and then I can look back,
and then I can begin to gloat

And I'll say,

"Hey there friends and hey there family,
I grew up, with any luck
I know that you're all proud of me"
