this song so accurately captures the frustration, monotony, and insanity of being stuck in a small, slow moving town as a teenager. i relate to this so much, what an amazing song.
edit: 3 years later and i’m finally moving on

“Cause we are helpless, selfish, one of a kind
Millennium kids, that all wanna die…

We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
We get into and lose our minds”

Couldn’t have said it better

Conan is singing a song about millennials.

I only just realised Conan is not a millennial he’s gen Z 😂

i cannot be the only one who dissociates during this song and it feels like i’m in a teenage movie about depression or rebellious kids

It sounds very ocean-y don't you think? Imagine having your head under the waters and listening to this

I just found out about Conan gray last week. Came across heather by accident when I heard it on the speakers when I was shopping. I went to my phone and found the song. I am so happy I did. I never usually listen to this type of music (usually just rap for me) but now I feel like a new part of my musical side is open I wouldn’t have discovered if it wasn’t for him. Thanks Conan. Really love a lot of your songs

[Lyrics]

Why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why
Why, why, why
I was off keying cars parked on radium lawns
By suburbian moms
I called a friend, let's meet at ten
Go wherever we want 'cause no one cares that we're gone
This town don't got much to do
You and I haven't got much to lose
So do you wanna rot in your room like we always do?
Talk about how fast we grew
And all the big dreams that we won't pursue
Then get in your car and laugh 'til we both turn blue
'Cause we are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
We get into trouble and lose our minds
It's something that I've heard a million times in my life
Generation Why
Parents think we're fast asleep
But as soon as we're home we're sneaking out the window
'Cause at this rate of earth decay
Our world's ending at noon
Could we all just move to the moon?
This town don't got much to do
And you and I haven't got much to lose
So do you wanna leave everyone in this place for good?
'Cause we are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
We get into trouble and lose our minds
It's something that I've heard a million times in my life
Generation Why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
We're livin' night to night
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Since we're bound to die, oh
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Oh, what's the use in trying?
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
And it's exactly why
We are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
We get into trouble and lose our minds
It's something that I've heard a million times in my life
Generation why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why

P.s: I put it here so I can sing along ehehe

It's so interesting to me that Conan's music seems to mostly find a high school demographic when he's my age (early 20s). I suppose that's how it goes. Whatever the reason, I adore you kids. Maybe this is just how memory works, but you all seem sweeter and more socially aware than my age group was in high school. Proud of you, and I promise high school will be over before you know it. <3

This is honestly one of my favorite songs of all time. I’m 30 and even I can relate to these feelings as a millennial. He’s speaking on some pretty deep and relatable feelings here. Truly a talented young writer.
