Its' never easy when you're a little different and everything so ritualistic
at your school where you don't fit in and the alienation slowly sinks in
but somehow you identify with peers attracted to the darker side
its a world where you need not go, but deep inside its something you know

but we do it, and we do it, and we do it again
we put the record on to evoke a friend
a tragic hero, a sin of our years
he rips our hearts to shreds and dries all our tears

Oh momma, won't you tell me when we get back to Canton, Ohio
I want to start all over again in Ohio and change my name back to Brian
In Ohio, this time we'll get it right

When you're lonely you write, and when you have friends you form a band
and the music reflects your alienation and the lyrics describe your pain
and the drugs distort your genious, but the drugs enhance your fame
and the mask evokes the fear in thos who don't understand your game
