about

I've worked in offices where the cultures were so competitive. (I hated it.) I hated high school and college too. I rolled my eyes at the people there who were all about the money and the cars and that kind of douchebag lifestyle.

I've always been a minimalist at heart: I believe in the simple life.

This song is my reaction to all the yuppie-ness I see everyday. (Hey, I'd choose being a hipster over being a yuppie any day of the year.)

The part I love the most about this song is the two-chord refrain. I was a big fan of Harvey Comics growing up, so I really had to drop that Casper reference there.

lyrics

CREDO

Mothers, tell your children they'll be president
Teachers, tell your students that they'll fly

That's the way the regimen goes
The Michael Jordan style
But I am just a friendly-ass ghost
I don't wanna try too hard

I don't wanna be rich
Don't wanna be famous
I'm lovin' my life that's ordinary

I don't shoot for the stars
Or pray for the sun
I'm lovin' my life that's ordinary

I'm ordinary
I'm ordinary

Slacker, you'll never end up president
Brother, you're cool 'cos you don't try

That's the way the credo goes
Un-complicate this life
I am just a friendly-ass ghost
I don't wanna try too hard
