And you, and you came to me like my alarm
I carved your first and last name in my arm
Now I only wear black so maybe then you will see
I'm just a shadow of what I'm not supposed to be
You fuel my fire with your laughs and with your frowns
You call me a freak and join the circus you clown
I heard a man say that I do it for attention
I never thought of that but now that you mention...
No I never drank blood before but I look like I might
with my face painted white

For just this once I wish you'd all just hear what I have to say
For just this once I wish you'd all just turn and fade away
For just this once I wish you'd all just hear what I have to say
For just this once I wish you'd all just turn and fade away

(But! But! But!) But now-a-day's are different from way back when
so hard to be yourself when your 4+10
For the very first time I feel kind of special
My mom says be normal yet she just got a facial
If my parents go away on their trip to Club Med
Then I'll join your tour and be a real dead head
I heard a girl say that I do it for attention
I never thought of that but now that you mention...
I spent my last ten bucks today on black hair dye
You know dye rhymes with die

For just this once I wish you'd all just turn and fade away
For just this once I wish you'd all just hear what I have to say
For just this once I wish you'd all just turn and fade away
For just this once I wish you'd all just hear what I have
Just hear what I have to say

oooooooooh ooooooooh ooooooooh

A psycho killer
Well qu'est-ce c'est

It doesn't matter any way
It matters anyway

    General Commenti almost think this is sort of about goth/emo? kids, maybe a bit sarcastic. like so hard to be yourself when youre 4+10, meaning 14, maybe theyre being sarcastic about the fact that life is hard when youre 14 because it really isnt? anyway i think its a spoof at goths/emos? who think they have the worst life ever.

    General CommentYeah I reckon it's them taking the mick of Goths or Emos or whatever... It's pretty funny :D

    Erm.. Btw, the lyrics.. -something- is not something, lol.. I think he says Qu'est-ce c'est.. Which means What Is It, I think... It's French, btw.. Meh, who knows..

    ..But the song pretty much is about Goths and Emos.. :p

    General CommentI don't really think it'd be a mockery of emo's, considering being an "emo" wasn't really much of a trend as it is now.

    Possibly out of goths, but it's not always a particular clique who feels like this, many kids at 14 start to think the world's against them. Maybe it's just a spoof of adolsecents in general?
