Coke bottle glasses,
I'm sitting in the corner
with my finger up my nose,
And my shoelaces untied again,
Another day of school with no friends.
A social outcast,
Two grades ahead in math,
with my highwater pants,
Giving meaning to pencil-necked-geek,
A dork or so to speak,
tongue-in-cheek.

They're all sucker-punching me,
Get in line for a wedgie.
All I want
and all I need,
Is someone who believes in me.

A song sung for underdogs,
for all the left out.
A flag flying for losers,
somewhere in the Heavens.
The God of ever-lasting comfort,
believed in me,
Loved me when I was faithless,
he still died for me.

Junior High schooler
With pencils in my pockets,
and my Trapper Keeper busted,
Spilling papers and books on the floor,
Not wanting seventh grade anymore.
Another class-clown,
Acting like a goof
to be accepted by my peers,
Giving meaning to pencil-necked-geek,
a dork or so to speak,
tongue in cheek.

They're all sucker-punching me,
Get in line for a wedgie.
All I want and all I need,
Is someone who believes in me.

A song sung for underdogs,
for all the left out.
A flag flying for losers,
somewhere in the Heavens.
The God of ever-lasting comfort,
believed in me,
Loved me when I was faithless,
he still died for me (x2)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a friend of mine...he's totally the same (but in a cool way :) I also like that it talks about how Jesus died for everyone- even freaks with no friends.

    General CommentThis song is so cool. It just reminds people that God loves you and He still died for you whether or not you're the most popular rich kid in school.

    General CommentIf they put "that special someone", like a girl instead of all the God stuff, this song would be a huge hit with all the ska kids. But most kids are too cool to respect other people's beliefs, so kudos to FiF for never comprimising themselves and still making some of the most positive, upbeat, and relatable songs like this.
    FiF had their own driving force, but to me more than anything they represented the true nerds and disrespected better than anyone else. Good music.

    General CommentIts about someone at school who is bullied, he is alone, people hate him there, but he finds the love of god towards the end of the song.
