You can't sell me incense
My world smells good enough to eat
So let's not eat, just smell the good and longing
Not owning
We'll circle like insects
Incensing the grieve liquored herd
Have you heard an encouraging word from them
They pretend

To be so above it all
Or so they would have you think
I think, no one thinks at all

You might show some interest
Your world looks good enough to eat
I see the ghost of a better world
Living in the disbelief in ghosts
Everyone tells me they're crazy
Crazy people aren't so fucking boring
Wake me when your through being cool, cause I'm snoring
And hoping

To see you beside yourself
Show me the rose stuff of you
Would you
Do it for yourself

Or for me
We both need a change
Your fear of normalcy is hardly strange
Let's be freaks, plain clothes police
Let's be deliberate, because it's obvious to me
Deliberately weird is pretty obvious

So color me obvious
I just want to be happy half the time
And blue only when I have the time

    General CommentActually I'm pretty sure it is 'Show me the raw stuff of youth' not 'rose stuff of you.'

    General Comment"Everyone tells me they're crazy
    Well crazy people aren't so fucking boring"

    That's about Billie Joe Armstrong. Him and Chris (bassist for Jawbreaker) we're hanging out and Billie was most likely high, and he said, "I'm fucking crazy!" so Chris wrote that part of the song based on that, it's kind of in response to Blakes disdain towards Green Day.
