In the back of a camouflage truck
They locked me in once with the materiel
I was full of a rage no one could handle
I was a private in the army
All the real girls with their backs turned called me crazy
Called me crazy

I worked for a while at a diner
Manager said I had to wear that little uniform
Said I was part of the problem
But I was in love with that blonde girl
She kissed me twice behind the counter
But when I asked her to get into my car
She called her man, said 'don't bother her'
She called her man, said 'don't bother her'

I guess I'll feel less than real all my life
With these feathers I made
Under me lifting me up
But I was a young James Dean
With a way with ladies
All the real boys in their black jeans called me crazy
Called me crazy
Called me crazy
Called me crazy

    General CommentI think this song is about not fitting into the gender binary, being neither male nor female. "All the real girls with their backs turned called me crazy", "All the realy boys in their black jeans called me crazy".

    General CommentOh man, people (esp. straight girls) need to listen to Girlyman's music and not just talk about how Ty is hot. This is a very good song, but I might like the lyrics better in a faster rock song--the song seems to serene for them.
    I love Nate's harmonies.
