Background "Ignorance" was recorded by American pop rock band Paramore. The song was recorded in Spring 2009. "Ignorance" was written by Paramore's band members Hayley Williams and Josh Farro. The song was released as the lead single from the bands 2009 studio album Brand New Eyes in July 2009. "Ignorance" was the first song written for Brand New Eyes.[4] In an interview with Kerrang!, Williams, who co-wrote the song, discussed the songs meaning, and her and Farro's inspiration for writing the song, saying, "In my eyes, this song is a huge turning point for the band. The truth of it is, growing up is not easy. We’re five different people who have to work towards the same goal on a daily basis. There were a lot of times when I felt really alone or angry or insecure. I don’t always feel good at confronting people, especially people that I love, like these guys. Sometimes it takes songs to get the point across. The song is from one person’s perspective. It’s unfair that I’m the one who gets to talk about it but it helped me a lot. The line ‘ignorance is your new best friend’ is about how I felt I was losing people, and I think the band did too. But it’s okay, we’re growing up. I love that song." Hayley Williams explained in an interview with The Guardian how this song saved the band from splitting up "I tried to mumble all the way through," she said about the first time she sung the lyrics to her Paramore bandmates. "But Taylor [York, guitarist] was right next to the speaker and heard every word. He gave me this fierce look – I thought he was going to kill me – and said, 'So do you want to tell me about those lyrics?' I ran into the bathroom, I was so nervous. But we talked for two hours and reconciled a lot of tough, heavy things. That song saved our band." (Source Ignorance Songfacts).

Ignorance - Paramore

{Verse 1}
If I'm a bad person, you don't like me
Well I guess I'll make my own way
It's a circle, a mean cycle
I can't excite you anymore
Where's your gavel? Your jury?
What's my offense this time?
You're not a judge, but if you're gonna judge me,
Well sentence me to another life

{Bridge}
Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault
'Cause you know we're not the same (Yeah! )
We're not the same (Yeah! )
Oh we're not the same
Yeah, the friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )

{Chorus}
Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out


You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend

{Verse 2}
And this is the best thing that could've happened
Any longer and I wouldn't have made it
It's not a war, no, it's not a rapture
I'm just a person, but you can't take it
The same tricks that, that once fooled me
They won't get you anywhere
I'm not the same kid from your memory
Well, now I can fend for myself

{Bridge}
Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault
'Cause you know we're not the same (No! )
We're not the same (No! )
Oh we're not the same
Yeah, the friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )
It's good

{Chorus}
Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend

Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out
