Song Description

Hard-rocking Worldview song. About failure, unwillingness to compromise. Stubborness, cynicism. Featuring Oliver Shaw's debut performance on kazoo! From Worldview's "Schoolboy Errors" album. Written, performed and recorded by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

Well you've always been so certain what you're down here for
But you're finding out it's not quite what they want you for
And it's said that every famous traitor had his price
But you're going to be a failure if your fee's too high

Well I'd say you've led a very charmed life up till now
Thinking everything would fall onto your plate somehow
Don't you see you've been a prisoner to integrity
So you're still a million years from where you're meant to be

Here comes a major underachiever
That's the way this world's gonna see you
Here's one of nature's underachievers
Wondering why the world will never look him in the eye

And you can't explain your strange career trajectory
But to everybody else there is no mystery
No it's obvious your confidence was just a thought
And it's not enough to get you to the prize you sought

People say you make your own luck
And you say they just got lucky
But you should aim to make your own luck
You might find they're onto something

Were you never told it's compromise that oils our wheels
And that you and life could hammer out some sort of deal
Now it seems that your potential will remain untapped
Yeah it's clear that your potential will remain just that

Here comes a major underachiever
That's the way this world's gonna see you
Here's one of nature's underachievers
Wondering why the world would never look him in the eye

A classic underachiever
No one's gonna tell you they need you
A tragic underachiever
Wondering why all opportunities have passed him by
