  • I'm not cool
    And nobody would want me that way
    I'm just a regular guy
    In an insane world
    Don't worry bout me
    I'll be OK

    It was a picture perfect day
    I hit the freeway in LA
    Driving a car you'd only see in a movie

    Became my once and future self
    With all the style and the wealth
    Surrounded by the people who wanna use me

    And then it came an epiphany
    From somewhere out of the car
    I never saw him crash into me
    But I know how I got home
    In a tow truck all alone
    Now I know

    I went out drinking in New York
    With bottle service just for sport
    Pretending I was living life like a hero

    Flashing the labels on my clothes
    Trying to keep up with the bros
    Talking bout bank accounts and leaving off zeros

    And when that bill came I could not breathe
    Never saw numbers that high
    So much for living in infamy
    Acting flush was not that hard
    Till I maxed out all my cards
    Now I know

    Cool people maybe they're just born with it
    They know the trends before they're here
    And I'm sick of trying cause they're no denying
    That's there's nothing cool about my atmosphere Writer/s: Eric Hutchinson
