I'm not always nice, not always mean
My room has never been seen clean
The way I feel is not always how I seem

The thoughts that form inside my brain
Don't always seem to entertain
'Cause when I tell my company
They think there's something wrong with me

You don't know me like you think you do
You don't understand me and it's true

I'm getting older day by day
Ain't got time to get to everything
Hold on tight, enjoy the ride
Life is short, so live it wisely

I'm not always sick, but often tired
Sometimes I'm having fun or wired
I don't have someone to call my own

I'm not full of all the answers
I guess that I'm an o.k. dancer
I just want to be left alone

    General CommentOMG this song is so powerful to me, I mean come on, the symbolism behind it is so profound and so thought-provoking. It is, of course, about perpetual oral diarreaha.

    General CommentI'm not sure why, but this is my favorite MxPx song. I never seem to get tired of it.

    General CommentThe subject is a lot more serious than the song title itself, the title makes it sound humerous but its really a kind of sad song. The answers/dancer rhyme is out of place rather than funny.

    The verse about his company could be a sense of humor or something to share, its a good joke for mike but the thoughts dont entertain other people, it makes them worried. I'm sure many of us have been in a situation like that.

    The chorus probaly reffers to his faith, they dont know him like they think they do they dont know of his religion.

    General CommentKind of random lyrics but still pretty deep (second stanza in particular for me) and the title is funny.
