Buh duh buh buh buh
Bud duh buh buh buh buh buh buh buh
You go right through me
I go right through but I'm about to
Go on reminding you I am about to see you through it
Buh duh buh buh buh
Bud duh buh buh buh buh duh buh buh
Buh duh buh buh buh
Your mouth not mind is open wide
You don't have a clue
I, I am a reminder
You've got a voice so talk to yourself
Lift the bad weight off your molars
And let the thoughts fall off your tongue
Because I'm calling, calling, calling
I've never written to anyone
So this is about ugly lovers
And this is about pretty sons
Because I'm a bastard, bastard, bastard
In my lipstick I'm so much fun
Connect your wood feet to a motor
And the chrome dance trophy is won
A little classy plastic lumber
I'm embarassed but I ain't that stunned
Looks like the humans' days are numbered
That's a sitcom that was number one
Because we're a past tense late reminder like always
I must've thoroughly failed to convince us not to mess this place up
(Shameful, shameful, shameful)

    General CommentDid anyone else notice that they forgot to list it on "Sad Sappy Sucker"? It says that "SSS" only has 23 tracks, but in reality it has 24 because they forgot this song.

    General Commenti think they forgot to list it, and then realizing what they did, they kept it off the lists so it looked intentional. Now if you would like to question a comment, you don't include dumbass. Since a comment is a personal opinion, that is what I felt happen. So get off your highhorse jackass. You dont know why that track isn't on. They either forgot, intentionally left it off, or did both. So thank you jackass. You will only take your own comments as truth and not listen to others.

    General CommentI always thought the first lines were "Lift the bad weight off your molars, And let the thoughts fall off your tongue " So I figured he was saying it's bad to keep things in. You should open your mouth and speak your mind (thoughts fall off your tongue)
