The Divine Comedy - Anthem For Bored Youth lyrics

"Knowledge is a curse
But ignorance is worse",
I heard it said.
Quote yourself if no one else will.
I am not prepared
To stick my head above that parapet
No more
I'd rather be ignored.

I could sing a biting satire or a farcical spoof,
But what would be the use?
I could write a thousand verses of beautiful truths,
But what would be the use?
It's just another anthem for bored youth.

Have I writer's block?
Or have I just forgotten who I am?
Am I who I was when I began?
Here's a little game:
How many times do I say "I"
In this song?
It's unlucky for some.

I could sing a biting satire or a farcical spoof,
But what would be the use?
I could write a thousand verses of beautiful truths,
But what would be the use?
It's just another anthem for bored youth
