In no solid state
You know we can't cop to
The frequency of your inner debate
It was all out of tune

You're entering this town
Yourself a weeping clown
You play along to songs written for you
But you're all out of tune

You're all out of tune

See the cars on the 95
Cut through them like a sharpen knife
Oh oh

You're all out of tune

See the cars on the 95
Cut through them like a sharpen knife
Oh oh

You've got the wrong attitude

In no solid state
You know we can't cop to
The frequency of your inner debate
It was all out of tune

You're entering this town
Yourself a weeping clown
You play along to songs written for you
But you're all out of tune

You're all out of tune

    General CommentTo me it sounds like the song's talking about someone who is desperate to fit in, but no matter what they do, they can't. 'you play along to songs written for you, but you're all out of tune.'

    It reminds me of people who try to meld into social circles that they really don't belong to; trying to be people they're not.

    The imagery of a 'weeping clown' also suggests this: a weeping clown is someone who has to put on a facade of being happy, but their true selves is deeply unhappy. This form of lying to oneself seems to be a running theme in the song.

    General Commenti thought it was "you've got the wrong attitude," not "new car you're all out of tune," after the second "see the cars..." bit.
