Angry Young Man
won?t you show a little kindness
and spare a little time.
We all know the cost of being free.

You?re racing through your life
and never once believing
you were anything but right.
And using that as an excuse for your cold heart.

Now you?re laughing in the face of disappointment
and disregarding any help offered from someone else.
You say you?re waiting for your royal appointment.
I think it?s more you?ve lost control of yourself.

Standing all alone
and quickly pointing out
that you made it on your own.
As if that?s proof of your great strength.

Defining words like love
as pretty, petty games
that you?ve put yourself above
Why, I heard you quit believing in God
because you were too damn proud to pray.

Well, laugh on in the face of disappointment.
Go ahead and be at war with the world,
if that?s what you like.
We all look much better after our royal appointments
but some of us just feel better after the fight.

That's right some of us just feel better after the fight.
