Introverted boy
You are not interesting, boy
You think you're intellectual
But no one's talking to you now
I might be an introvert
To you, the shallow fashionista
Deep as any paper plate
Dressed just like the girl beside you
How could I forget a waste of cloth?
Of course, I do remember
On the back deck, drunk and awkward
I think we accidentally met

I know you've got someplace to get to
And I really got to get somewhere
Remember when I said that Vincent
Had some tickets for me there?
How could I forget a waste of breath?
Of course, I do remember
All the things you said were pointless
Now you go on dropping names

    General CommentGotta love Gen Xers snubbing the shallow.
    At around 2:15 into the song, what's with the guy going "I kinda dig you"? Is that supposed to be the voice of the shallow person or the introvert?
    I'm confused...

    General CommentCDConn, don't be ashamed. Many esteamed contributors to the fields of science and literarture have been burdened with the dreadful but inevitable schizophrenia. It's nothing to be ashamed of. But on a side note, I think what you're hearing is some sort of synth effect. You crazies.

    General Commentcdconn, i hear it too... except i don't think theyre really saying "mommy". it sounds more like just a random electric type noise to add to the song. i really like this song, it's awesome.

    General CommentActually, this song is sort of a Part 2 to Desperate Guys. All of Wet From Birth is a concept album about having a baby, except I don't get how Dropkick The Punks fits in. If you think about all the other songs though, they DO fit in.
