Mutants, Drugs, & Television

lyrics

What is it about me that makes me so transparent?
Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass?
and what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision
Are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television?

Those boys in the hall standing next to the grease vending machine
have eyes like lasers, the red lights of being 17
and they’re watching my form decompose
like my skin is made of glass
like I’m wearing water for clothes

I wanna cash my paycheck
See if anyone wants me to stay
Tired of watching you focus on what’s behind me anyway
I’m gonna catch a bus and go away
I’m just gonna catch a buzz and go away

Does she love you
Does she care for you
Does she do all that she can
Do you love her
Do you care for her
I don’t think you understand

Well maybe I’m not the real thing
Maybe I’m just a decoy
Maybe I was just put in this field
For you to take aim and destroy
I have no occupation
other than these meditations
about giving out my retaliation

What is it about me that makes me so transparent?
Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass?
& what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision
are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television?
