Why Not Just Be Normal
Lebanon Hanover Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Why not just be normal she said
All the black you wear is
Making the neighbors depressive
Look at all the eyes that stare
The guy in the military wear
Doesn’t seem impressed about my lavallière
Why should I care
Please, lead me into a groundless future
Lead me into a groundless future
Into, into a groundless future
Into a groundless future
Into, into a fatigue future
Into a fatigue future
Why not just be normal she said
All the vacuuming is making
The housewifes depressive
Living in this street is worse than hell
The guy in the millimeter hair
Seems to smell the strangers in the air
But I don’t care

Please, lead me into a groundless future
Lead me into a groundless future
Into a groundless future




Lead me into a ruinous future
Into a ruinous future into a ruinous future

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Lebanon Hanover's song "Why Not Just Be Normal" explore themes of societal conformity, dissatisfaction with societal norms, and a yearning for an alternative future. The song begins with the phrase "Why not just be normal she said," which can be seen as a critique of society's pressure to conform and fit into predefined norms. The singer questions the need to conform and tries to understand the negative reactions they receive for not conforming.


The lyrics then mention the black clothing worn by the singer, suggesting that it elicits negative reactions from their neighbors. The black attire may symbolize nonconformity, darkness, or a rejection of societal expectations. The line "Making the neighbors depressive" indicates the discomfort or unease that the unconventional appearance of the singer causes among those around them. This line highlights the contrasting emotions caused by deviating from societal norms and how it affects others.


The mention of the guy in military wear not being impressed with the singer's lavallière (a type of necktie or scarf) further emphasizes the disconnection between the singer and societal expectations. The indifference of the military figure can be interpreted as a representation of the rigidity and conformity associated with traditional societal structures. The singer questions why they should care about the opinion of someone so tied to these societal norms that they overlook the singer's individuality.


The second paragraph continues the theme of seeking an alternative future by expressing a desire to be led into a "groundless future." This phrase can be understood as a call to break free from the limitations and constraints of conformity, and venture into a future where societal expectations no longer weigh them down. The repetition of "lead me into a groundless future" suggests a longing for guidance and a change that goes beyond the known and predictable.


The lyrics then introduce the idea of a "fatigue future," which implies a weariness or exhaustion with the current state of affairs. It is an expression of discontentment with the repetitiveness and mundanity of conforming to societal expectations. The desire for a "groundless" and "fatigue" future demonstrates a longing for something different, uncertain, and potentially liberating.


In the final paragraph, the song expresses a discontentment with the singer's current living situation. The mention of vacuuming by the "housewifes" indicates the repetitive and monotonous nature of their daily routine. The line "Living in this street is worse than hell" suggests a deep dissatisfaction with the stifling and claustrophobic nature of their immediate environment.


The lyrics then mention another character, "the guy with millimeter hair," who seems to sense the presence of strangers in the air. This can be interpreted as a metaphor for societal norms being disrupted or challenged, causing discomfort among those who adhere to them. Despite these tensions, the singer remains defiant, declaring their indifference towards the opinions and reactions of others.


Overall, "Why Not Just Be Normal" portrays a desire to break free from societal constraints and find a new path. It questions the necessity of conforming to predefined norms, expresses weariness with the status quo, and yearns for a future that is unconventional, uncertain, and potentially liberating.
