11 Angsty Lyrics Your AIM Profile Desperately Needed

IT'S NOT A PHASE, MOM.

AIM Profiles: Without them, how would your friends know about your burdening sense of middle school-induced ennui? For so many of us, they were a profound means of self-expression -- like an art museum, but filled with Taking Back Sunday quotes.

Let's rewind a little and give a well-deserved hat tip to some of the classic lyrics we proudly displayed on our profiles:

  • "So, is that what you call a getaway? / Well tell me what you got away with / 'Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish / I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids."

  • "Don't waste your time on me / You're already the voice inside my head"
