The original version was called “Surf’s Up” and sounded nothing like this

lyrics

So easy to feel homesickness when the leaves on trees become an avalanche
Speaking of trees, my redwood of leaf this to me relies on just a branch
My wooden home of "just do better" is collapsing on my back
Mediocrity with a new release, but can you really call it that?

Take your time, two day deadline
Today you're behind the future; perfect, lovely, dead computers
Life of crime sounds just fine
You'll never amount to anything until the day you wave goodbye

Pardon my failures as I split myself in two
I'm a radioactive waste of time, and calmness missed its cue
You'll never hate me like you say you always do
Stressing, not addressing my choices: into out of the blue
Take your time, not mine

My social life savings account is bankrupt, so I take up all of my free time
Excavating gold with plastic shovels, more like trapped in a coal mine
Inhale, exhale, but all I breathe is failure and dusty, dirty coal
I have a lot of plans in life, or at least that's the lie I'm told

Calm your mind, energize
You're failing at mending attitudes, I cannot steal your attributes
Chords and rhymes won't make dimes
Having time and confidence will prevent the asinine

Pardon my failures as I split myself in two
I'm a radioactive waste of time, and calmness missed its cue
You'll never hate me like you say you always do
Stressing, not addressing my choices: into out of the blue
Take your time, not mine

Every day that passes just gets me farther from my prime
Or is this it, because it hardly seems like life will be just fine
Why won't you use your damn experience and tell me what to do?
Why am I so scared of incomprehension when it's all that I once knew?

Wait in line, save some time
Many have tried, no one succeeds, and it scares me to think of life without creed
Love your life, have no pride
Why should I choose? I'll take it all. I'm possibly impossible

Pardon my failures as I split myself in two
I'm a radioactive waste of time, and calmness missed its...
You'll never hate me like you say you always do
Stressing, not addressing my choices: into out of the blue
Stressing, not addressing my choices: into out of the blue
Stressing, not addressing our choices: into out of the blue
Stressing, not addressing your choices: into out of the blue
Stressing, but addressing my choices
Take your worthless, wasted time, not mine
