We've gone way too fast for way too long
And we were never supposed to make it half this far
And I lived so much life, lived so much life
I think that God is gonna have to kill me twice
Kill me twice like my name was Nikki Sixx
I woke up in my shoes again but somewhere you exist singing

Oops I, did it again, I forgot what I was losing my mind about
Oh, I only wrote this down to make you press rewind
And send a message that I was young and a menace

Young and a menace

Woke up on the wrong side of reality
And there's a madness that's just coursing right through me
And as far as the time, far as the time
Not sure I'm there yet but I'm searching out the ride

Oops I, did it again, I forgot what I was losing my mind about
Oh, I only wrote this down to make you press rewind
And send a message that I was young and a menace

Young and a menace

If I am off the deep end
I'm just here to become the best yet
I'm just here for the psych assessment
I'm just here for the... the...

Young and a menace

We've gone way too fast for way too long

Song facts

"I think that, to me, the song and the record is kind of about, it's about the idea of being an outsider, and then, you're like… This is how I remember growing up. Like, I felt like an outsider in my own house a little bit, and not so like with my family, but like more so even in my community. Like, we didn't, I didn't like, look like any of the other kids in my neighbourhood, and I didn't like, I felt like an outsider. And it wasn't 'til I like, found punk-rock that I kind of was like, "Oh, here's, like, a place where I fit in". Or like, we all don't fit in so we like, kind of fit in together, you know? And I think the song references that…" - Pete Wentz
