lyrics

Nobody cares who you are—
And I mean that in the nicest way
Because it applies to each of us, everyday.

Yes, nobody cares who you are
And I mean that in a cosmological way
You’re probably not going to have your say.

You say you’ll be a big star
Well, I say in a couple billion years
You’ll be back exactly where you are—

With nobody caring who you are
And I mean that in the most pragmatic way
You don’t have long but, hey, you’ve got today.

It may seem a noble cause
To bring yourself more applause,
But you gotta remember the big picture,
Take the long view and listen:

Nobody cares who you are—
And I mean that in a very real way
You're part of a genome that's better each day.

You've got to keep that ego in check.
You’re a pretty cool card in a trillion-card deck.

You're the universe knowing itself—
But, hey man, nobody likes a universe that's full of itself.

It may seem a noble cause
To bring yourself more applause,
But you gotta remember the big picture,
Take the long view and listen:

When the sun burns up in 5 billion years
Do you think they'll say,
"It would be alright,
If only Brad Pitt were here"?

That's why nobody should care who you are
Except for the ones you love
Right here where you are.
