If I was an old man and gave you my company
I might find a friendship in your love of novelty
Or if I was much younger, around the age of twelve
You'd take me in and find a bit of child in yourself

But perhaps I only serve as a reminder of the truth
That not everyone is beautiful or revels in their youth
And while no one will admit it, we all feel it in our gut
That while all the pieces fit so nicely all I do is

Jut

Jut

There are certain givens in this world that you can always trust
That will follow all the standards that the TV sets for us
The hope that all our sparkles show the world what we're about
But that light reflects asymmetrically when there's something sticking out

And now I try to take into account my old proclivity
To think the people that I envy waste their time and hated me
And I know that to a fault some hope my mind is long since shut
But that filthy stupid factory means that all I do is

Jut

Jut

Like a sore thumb

Like a sore thumb

Now I'm a tolerable person, by now I'm sure you've found
You can have a beer with me if there's no one else around
But I will understand if when your real friends arrive
You excuse yourself politely and pretend I'm not alive

But I could be a great companion and a true friend to you all
But no one responds to questions or will answer when I call
Oh how much I'd love to reach out, pull myself out of this rut
But your averted gaze confirms that all I do is

Jut

Jut

Like a sore thumb

Like a sore thumb
