When I was a boy I played a fake guitar Thought I could be a rock star When I got older I played a 6 string guitar Thought rock stars were phony and didn’t want that at all I wanted to find different ways to make sound Made noises that weren’t very good There’s a time when you can experiment And there’s a time when you just write songs And the chords can just go on and on And the people will finally sing along Yeah right At least not tonight I wanna be like Roger Waters writing The Wall But you don’t like Roger Waters at all I wanna be like Roger Waters writing The Wall But you don’t like my music at all I’m glad it’s not for you But I wish you could like it too

I know there are things that grow out of the ground and they look sorta pretty when they bloom I know that I should probably try to enjoy them instead of always filling my head with doom But there’s so many bad things There’s so many sad things that I have trouble believing anything is good There’s so many sad things and so many bad things That I feel misunderstood when I don’t seem happy about some seemingly glorious thing cause I can’t help but think something worse happened at the same time I know there are lots of pretty birds and they fly like people wish they could If I was a poet I would try to come up with words about how the experience makes me feel alive But I ain’t no poet at least not a good one one that makes people feel good with reflective thoughts that resonate to so many All I do is sing about me Oh, there’s so many bad things and there’s so many sad things that I have trouble believing anyone is good

I wanna be an odd sensation Be known around the nation I wanna be an odd sensation Be the king of my location And all the kids doing LSD Will gather around me Yeah all the kids doing LSD will wanna sing just like me I wanna be an odd sensation Why’d I have to be born in Dayton I tried moving to the big city But there was hardly any room for me All the kids selling tapes and CDs Well they didn’t even notice me They didn’t listen to my songs Even though I made em free

Love is a chemical reaction Some scientist fell in love with a computer girl He thought she was foreign but he wanted it so much that he didn’t realize she was merely artificial intelligence People make money off the lonely it’s so easy to promise riches or love or dirty sex For a small fee Love is superficial All these people with online love only to realize the person doesn’t look like what they want They spend all their time talking online only to find they wish they were blind People make money off of the lonely it’s so easy to make money off of the lonely They made a robot that thought it could love But it couldn’t stand being alone So it clung to everyone who came through And didn’t want to let them go Cause he was confined to a solitary room While they went out and had stuff to do And the robot he was destroyed For acting too much like a boy And he’ll never feel again Though it was mostly just pain anyway People make money off of the lonely it’s so easy to make money off of the lonely

Thought I was a boy genius but I ain’t a boy anymore So I keep using the same notes and I keep saying the same lines hoping one time they catch something but I know I’m just wasting my time You don’t know what I don’t know about you but you probably know that I don’t know a lot And you could know what i don’t want you to know about me if you listened to my songs you’d see how insecure i am and how much i hate the world but whenever I’m with you there’s hardly even a world It’s just you

Watch them act out those scenes It's real life on their tiny screens I feel like an old man I wanna complain but I feel so dumb So instead, I don't talk about nothin Watch them act, they act so well But do they really believe in heaven and hell? I feel like a moron like I just don't get it How they can walk around looking like they get it

America is strong America likes to drop bombs And always think it’s right And shows people a good time I was born in the USA I’ll probably die in the USA But I was born in the USA And that doesn’t mean too much too me The president has a rubber tooth To tell big lies in a soft bouncy way He got it from the president before And he from the one before and he the one before The president has a rubber tooth I’m telling you the truth Oh, why would I lie? Just because that’s what everyone else would do? America likes to party Celebrities like to do drugs And act like fools on TV Their lives are entertainment Oh I don’t know why people care About the clothes they wear And the things they have to say Cause they aren’t really anybody I was born in the USA I’ll probably die in the USA If I had money or it was the 1920s I’d probably move to Paris I was born in the USA I wanna die like JFK with a bullet through my head from a mysterious gunman

There’s so many people that it’s hard to care about anyone but me There’s so many people in the world it’s hard to care about anything the people who care and give to charity don’t they ever think about all the other bad things? cause if you really cared you’d only be able to think about what you weren’t doing and if you really cared you wouldn’t be able to sleep and if you really cared it would be overwhelming and if there’s a God he don’t care about a thing He just sits back and watches all his faulty little things that he created in his own image He wonders if he should bring an end to cancer or at least hunger but instead he just fluffs his beard God if there’s a God he sure must be weird cause if he really cared he couldn’t stand to see us ruined by disease and hunger and our awful selves If he really cared he might even be angry and send another flood instead of threats of hell oh if he really cared he would have us live in peace in peace and harmony

When I was a kid I wrote my first lyrics about how I wanted to sing in a band How I didn’t want money and all that shit A friend told me they weren’t lyrics at all Just me writing what I thought And for a while I thought he was right Tried to write about strange things Like odd creatures taking flight or spacemen riding through the night Though it felt just as silly As just being me But I dig myself into a hole By being myself I’m not crazy but I just don’t really like things I try to be honest when I sing It’s the only time I attempt honesty other times I just laugh and say dumb things But how can I expect anyone to like my songs I don’t, I really don’t but I want them to just the same I write about things I do I write about writing songs It’s just something that I do And I know I must do it wrong Because I’ve been doing it for too long And I’ve written too many songs and nobody likes them except maybe for that one It was put on a CD and sometimes people would yell out to me at one of my few shows when are you going to play tweet tweet? Oh I dig myself into a hole By being myself I’m not crazy but I just don’t really like things I try to be honest when I sing It’s the only time I attempt honesty other times I just laugh and say dumb things But how can I expect anyone to like my songs I don’t, I really don’t but I want them to just the same Won’t you sing along with me? They never sing along with me Won’t you sing along with me? Sing along with me

I don’t know what you do to me when you look at me with those big brown eyes I don’t think you know what you do to me when you tell me those little lies Why can’t you just be honest with me and tell me what you’re really thinking? Why can’t you be honest with me cause it’s only my heart you’re breaking Cause I don’t know what you really want You say something then you do something else Can’t you see it’s killing me I want you and I don’t want no one else Sometimes I’m so honest with you and I don’t mean for it to hurt you but sometimes you’re dishonest with me oh don’t you see it hurts me I don’t ever wanna hurt you

There’s a town made of sound underground When people talk it ruins everything The walls shake The ground quakes The floor disappears Then they shout And the freak out And a new world appears Then they go at it again Talking ruins everything And you know they’ll never learn They’ll keep causing mass destruction There is a clown A funny clown Underground He don’t want fame They don’t know his name He entertains And makes them laugh Until too many people show up Then he leaves Just like the breeze And nobody knows where he goes And then he does it again Talking ruins everything They all try to guess his name And he leaves again If you and me could just be without saying anything without divulging information that would work better for me just leave out those mixed feelings isn’t that how it ought to be? that would really work for me So keep your big mouth shut! And I’ll try not to say anything at all
