Boomerang, Zoomerang, Doomerang, Up

The time has come to realize what you are, what you've done inside
The time has come, we'll have something to talk about
I will tell

Looking back...dumb
and now I realize...old man
how much you really loved him...dumb
This child's mind you terrorized...old man
You came to him...dumb
He really didn't know your lies...old man
Now, his innocence gone...dumb
He's that child you terrorized...old man

This fucking thing that I know, it came to me and you
This fucking thing that I know, because of you
My childhood is gone, because I loved you
My childhood is gone, because I loved you

Be my neighbor

Looking back...child
and now I realize...fucker
how much you really loved him...child
This child's mind you hypnotized...fucker
You came to him...child
He really didn't know your lies...fucker
Now, his innocence gone...child
I'm that child you terrorized...fucker

chorus

But you told me that everybody was my neighbor
You took advantage of me, like I took a trip anywhere
I wish I wouldn't have watched you, I really mean it
My childhood, a failure
What a fuckin neighbor

I hate you, I will tell

chorus

This fucking thing that I feel!!!
This fucking thing that I feel!!!
My childhood is gone!!!
My childhood is gone!!!

I will tell...

    General CommentBack in the day when I was a speed freak, um... even further back when I was a little kid watchin' Mr. Rogers, that shit was scary. He was a freaky old man... Land of Makebelieve and Mr. FuckinMcFeely and shit... made me sick. So back when I was doing speed, like for 5 or 6 days I'd be trippin out and my brain would start to get freaky and get schizophrenic and stuff, and I'd tape it and watch it everyday over and over... I don't know, I was sick in the head. As a kid he told me to be polite and all it did was get me picked on. I fucking hate that man. Thanks for making me polite and trusting everyone, and easy to take advantage of. So I spent 3 months on that one song, just tweakin' on it, and it was totally just my Mr. Rogers obsession, about how evil I thought he was. Pretty much drug induced." - Jonathan Davis

    General CommentMr Rogers neighborhood was an awesome show, unfortanatley kids took it seriously thinking everyone was their neighbor and ended up gettin kidnapped or bum raped. This song is basically Dissen Mr Rogers, talkin about how its his fault that some kids lives are messed up. Jonathan Davis's in particular. He just took the message the wrong way, when mr. rogers said "wont you be my neighbor" he met wont you act nice and courteous to me and lend a helping hand. He was trying to get the world to act that way to one another be each others neighbors, not sayin go out and trust everyone their all your neighbors and their all nice ppl. He knew the world was fucked up, and thats why he said those things. But alot of kids, including myself, could really give a rats ass about what it meant. It was just a show that came on why you would eat your cheese and crackers at grandmas house waitin for mom to get off work. Poor Mr. Rogers, god rest his soul.
