Of all my stoned digressions
Some have mutated into the truth
Not a spoof
You are the bold expression of all your parents flaws
Makes you pause -
There's no Oz

Can't be what you outta be
Gotta be what you wanna be

Take it with pride and
Like a dragonfly
Dragonfly wants a piece of pie
But he is so strung out

Shake me off the knife because I want to go home

Cursed to be named after jazz songs
High school principal
Show and tell
Preach and yell

Ghostly Iraqian starship
Ghostly ? Van Gogh
No more line
No more li-ine

Can't be what you wanna be
Gotta be what you outta be

Taken with pride &
Like a dragonfly
Dragonfly wants a piece of pie
But he is so strung out

Shake me off the knife because I want to go home

    General CommentI agree with a lot of this user's ideas, but this is how I would do it:

    "Of all my stoned digressions
    Some have mutated into the truth
    Not a spoof
    You are the born expression of all your parents' flaws
    Which you parsed
    There's no Oz

    Can't be what you oughta be
    Gotta be what you wanna be

    Take it with pride and
    Like a dragonfly
    Dragonfly wants a piece of pie
    Be he is so strung out

    Shake me off the knife because I want to go home (x4)

    Cursed to being named after jazz songs
    Highschool principle
    Show and tell
    Preach and yell

    Ghostly Iraqi and starship
    Ghostly ???? van Gogh
    No more signs
    No more lines

    Can't be what you wanna be
    Gotta be what you oughta be

    Take it with pride and
    Like a dragonfly
    Dragonfly wants a piece of pie
    But he is so strung out

    Shake me off the knife because I want to go home (x4)"

    The one thing I'm not sure about is the "ghostly ???? van Gogh". Doesn't sound like any word I've ever heard. At first I thought I heard "I, Tina" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)

    General CommentThe first lyrics are wrong.

    "Of all my stoned digressions
    Some have mutated in to the truth.
    Not a spoof."
