"Normal" as written by and Steven John Wilson....
Here is my car, my phone and my TV
I've got it all, but you can see through me
But am I here? It's kind of hard to tell
I do a good impression of myself
But what's normal now anyhow?

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day

Prescription drugs, they help me through the day
And that restraining order keeps me well at bay
And what's normal now, anyway?

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day

Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental

Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental

Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little sentimental
Wish I was old and a little

    General CommentThe first line of the chorus is "sullen and bored, the kids stay", not "stoned in the mall". This is a direct reference to their other song, "Sentimental", which has a similar structure in the chorus. The second line, however, does say "stoned in the mall", as written here.

    Can anyone make out the interweaving lyrics that are sung over the "Wish I was old and a little sentimental" lines? I think they'd provide great insight into this song. All I can make out is "You've gotta see the way he's looking (????) at the waves now." I'm not even sure that's entirely correct or if it changes at all during the repetitions.
