Take the family guns and lock 'em all inside
I'm coming home
I heard you found someone.
Found someone that looks like me
But oh he's such a bore.
He locks himself inside and never speaks
I heard he laughs at us
Oh you know he really does

Well I'm callin the cops
I'm diggin for trash and the neighbors don't care
Cause I'm callin the shots
If you like it or not man
Believe me its already right now

Friends like cannonballs
Hit him on the head to dim the lights
And they're after me oh you know they have to be
Well oh hear the cameras roll
And hush as they picture us indoors
Oh you know you'll stake a claim
I hope you make a name for us

Well I'm callin the cops
I'm diggin for trash and the neighbors don't care
Cause I'm callin the shots
If you like it or not man
Believe me its already right now

The proof is in the shock
That when the curtains drop we won't know where to stand
So we're singin as hard as we can
Well like it or not man believe me it's already right now

    General Comment"The lyrics are a bit cryptic intentionally. This song, along with a lot of the rest of the record, is a lot about figuring out what I’m about and how I fit in, particularly in regards to my family and what I imagine their expectations are. There were a lot of things that I wanted to express without spelling them out literally and making myself clearly understood, so as not to upset anyone. I suppose writing songs with messages directed at specific people and then making them cryptic enough so that they can’t understand them is a bit paranoid. I also think it’s neat to keep the song ambiguous so that anyone can interpret it however they want." - Aaron Chapman
