Sometimes I get the strangest feelings
I want to bust your head
I've got the whole world freaking
I'm just the kind of guy
All around the world
They've got their hands up screaming
Can't the gambles fly
No one knows for sure

I've got the portrait hanging around
In the picture frame
In the halfway house on life
We're not the same

Time draws a narrow streak
I'm just your average freak
I made a deal with life
I'm known around the world

I'm not the one with the open wound
You're just protection for the righteous kind
I'm not the one with an open wound
You're just protection for the righteous kind
Righteous kind...

And of a world of trouble
I've got the hopeful freed
Made a deal with life
I know that nothing's cruel
My cataclystic thoughts
The mother of my dreams
You friend betrayed my smoke screen
I'm wrapped around your screams

There's a portrait hanging around
In the picture frame
In the halfway house on life
And I'm not the same

I'm not the one with the open wound
You're just protection for the righteous kind
I'm not the one with an open wound
You're just protection for the righteous kind

    General CommentNaw the chorus is good maybe not the best but still fits with it pretty good, great song none the less. This song is really underated in the list of cky songs, more people should hear it.

    General CommentAs Deron said

    It is about a pyscho who is almost completely rehabilitated but sometimes still thinks those crazy thoughts.

    This song dates back to the oiL days correct?

    General CommentThis is my favorite CKY song... I love how they save they best for last on Volume 1. They're such an amazing band, everything from their lyrics to their music structure. If I remember correctly, on Ask CKY it was posted that they recorded it in either the basement or someones room, not in a studio. It probably would have sounded better in a more professional setting, but thats the thing about CKY, they sound marvelous anywhere, anytime.
