    Nothing really matters
    Nothing really matters at all
    When all your dreams are shattered everything is beautiful

    Nothing ever happens
    They think we waste our lives but they're wrong
    We're moving on
    Yeah

    Everybody knows
    You know the ship's going down
    Everybody knows
    Ooh
    We're sailing cherries around
    Everybody knows we're gonna die in this town
    Yeah

    Hey
    Woah
    Oh
    Oh

    Na na na na
    (Whoa)
    (Oh)
    Na na na na

    Nothing really matters
    Nothing really matters at all
    When all your dreams are shattered everything is beautiful

    We're moving on
    Yeah

    Everybody knows
    You know the ship's going down
    Everybody knows
    Yeah
    We're sailing cherries around
    Everybody knows we're gonna die in this town
