about

Some people believe the world revolves around them. Other people are "situationally unaware." Still others don't care how their actions impact everyone else nearby. This song is about them.

lyrics

Turn on your cell phones, turn on your cell phones
Turn up your loudest and your most obnoxious ring tones
Why should you miss a call from Joe just because you’re at a show?

Let all your children vacate your table
They should get some exercise when they are able
So let the kids play hide and seek ‘cause something’s got them
awfully riled
You deserve some downtime, so let the waitstaff entertain your child

Because nobody matters but you, nobody matters but you
Nobody wants to date you, haters gonna hate you
What’s a golden child to do when nobody matters but you

Gather your girlfriends, go to the city
Put on your high heels everyone just looks so pretty
Shoulder to shoulder, make a wall, no one can get around at all
It’s time for texting, so just stop walking
Why do these people look so mad, look at them gawking
There’s an awning over that door, why don’t you take a break underneath
Use the window like a mirror, let the patrons of the diner watch you
pick your teeth

Because nobody matters but you, nobody matters but you
You were blessed at birth to be the queen of earth
It revolves around you-know-who
Nobody matters but you

Go to the drugstore, buy some essentials
After they ring you up say, "Oops I need some pencils!"
The folks behind you will be fine - hey, that's why they
call it a line
Go back to find them, it takes a while
Make sure no one can get around you in the aisle
And when you find them on the shelf
Head up and hand them to the man
And when he's finally finished bagging
Say, "Wait! I have a coupon for a different brand!"

Because nobody matters but you, nobody matters but you
(J) You can take your place atop the human race
(M) You sit alone upon your padded throne
(J) Nobody wants to date you, haters gonna hate you
What’s a golden child to do when nobody matters but you
