Mom like pills and dad likes alcohol
And I'll set fire to all the neighbors' dogs
And I'll piss on all my neighbors' lawns
Grandpa shoots the wheels off of passing cars
Uncle Tom has hookers in the trunk again
He pays for his lady friends

And we set aside our differences at the dinner table
A picture you can frame about the fireplace
A picture you can change to better suit your taste
You can fake a smile to hide your crooked face
But we're all the same
We're all the same
We're all the same

Home is a prison and you are here to stay
You shrivel and shake if nothing grows in the Garden State
Your roots will settle in suburban meadows
It drains you of all your heart
Leaves you out to die

And we set aside our differences at the dinner table
A picture you can frame about the fireplace
A picture you can change to better suit your taste
You can fake a smile to hide your crooked face
But we're all the same
We're all the same
We're all the same

We set aside our differences at the dinner table
A picture you can frame about the fireplace
A picture you can change to better suit your taste
You can fake a smile to hide your crooked face
But we're all the same
We're all the same
We're all the same
