2 Cents
Beowülf Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everybody's got to throw their 2¢
Everybody's got to throw their 2¢ in, where it don't belong
Everybody's got to throw their 2¢
Everybody's got to throw their 2¢ in, where it don't belong

Take all of your opinions
Keep 'em to yourself
You stupid words they all do nothin
But you dont know nothing me or my ways
So just SHUT UP!
SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!

Everybody's got to throw their 2¢
Everybody's got to throw their 2¢ in, where it don't belong

And I dont need to hear your optimistic plan
You know it all, your knowin nothin
But you don't know nothin about me
Or my world
So just SHUT UP!
SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
Keep your 2¢

Darken circle, shollow vision (or at least it sounds like that)
That is why I, never listen
You cant change my mind
And you cant change my mind
They cant change my mind
And you cant change my mind

So just SHUT UP!
SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!

Yea yea

BEST YOU! keep your 2¢ out




So just, shut up
Keep you 2¢

Overall Meaning

The song "2 Cents" by Beowülf is about people who feel the need to give their opinions where they are not wanted or needed. The use of the phrase "throw their 2¢ in" is a metaphor for giving an opinion. The song encourages the listener to keep their opinions to themselves and not impose them on others, especially when they do not know the individual or their situation. The lyrics have a sarcastic and rough tone, as the band expresses their distaste for those who feel the need to interject their opinions.


The first verse of the song encourages people to keep their opinions to themselves. The singer calls people's words "stupid" and suggests they do nothing. The singer also asserts that the person giving the opinion does not know anything about them or their ways, so they should simply "shut up." The chorus continues, arguing that everybody feels the need to give their opinion when it is not wanted, and the singer asks them to keep their 2¢ to themselves.


In the second verse, the singer tells the person giving the opinion that they do not need to hear their optimistic plan. The singer asserts that they do not know anything about them or their world; hence they should keep their opinions to themselves. The bridge of the song uses repetition of the phrase "shut up," emphasizing the singer's desire for people to keep their opinions to themselves. The final chorus reinforces the idea that people should keep their opinions to themselves, as the singer encourages listeners to keep their 2¢ out.
