lyrics

You droop your head and you think you’re dead
You follow news with dread
You don’t have to act pretty
to be wack and all that

Although I poke and smoke and ego-stroke
and knock them back with dumb jokes
I still think that you’re pretty
and wack and all that

Because everyone’s the same.
Everyone’s the same.
And you still drive me insane,
yeah you still drive me insane
‘cause I see all this pretty.

I know things don’t turn out the way you want. It’s like having a birthday after a major holiday. And I hope we can find some time together. Or at least just tell me what to say.

Because everyone’s the same.
Everyone’s the same.
But you still drive me insane,
yeah you still drive me insane
‘cause I see all this pretty.
