lyrics

She thinks my favorite book is overrated
The plot is vague and there’s a lack of bad guys
But she’ll never know about the depth of a character
Until she reads Catcher In The Rye

He’s way too overdramatic to be a teenage protagonist
Do you even remember what it’s like to struggle with all of it?
It’s a story of growing up and getting through insecurities
I can’t speak for you, but that sounds a lot like me

You’re a phony, you’re a fake you are running in place
Try living outside of your pre-constructed life
You’re a phony, you're a fool you are used as a tool
I’d rather die than live my life a lie

Let’s take a trip to New York in December
We’ll walk around and smoke lots of cigarettes
We’ll find ourselves in Central Park as the cold starts to set
And make believe that we are smoking with our breath

Dance with me darling, my older lady love
I’m young, but I am nimble on my feet
Afterwards I’ll talk to a prostitute in a hotel room
Sometimes I just get so lonely

You’re a phony, you’re a fake you are running in place
Try living outside of your pre-constructed life
You’re a phony, you're a fool you are used as a tool
I’d rather die than live my life a lie

There’s not much action or many moral lessons
It’s not a drama-tween fairy tale of sorts
It’s about seeing Holden Caulfield in your reflection
And knowing you can live your life unsure

You’re a phony, you’re a fake you are running in place
Try living outside of your pre-constructed life
You’re a phony, you're a fool you are used as a tool
I’d rather die than live my life a lie
