Under the milk float, gravity objects
Positive breakthrough and now where's my hovercraft?
Nikola Tesla, father of the brain
A terrible dresser that man
Paused at the shop to restock on virgins' blood
Black and white, it's all hemoglobin

Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just boy
With the brightest future

Over the weekend, everybody died
Something infectious but yet something wonderful
Bobby Gomora, I saw him on the bus
Making his eyelids a grievo-
-Us, on the beams with the label clear as mud
Got a friend and a new placenta

Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the brightest future

Suit yourself, there's nothing like a military coup
The clothes are great and everybody loves a curfew

Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the brightest future
Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the brightest future

Suit yourself, there's nothing like a military coup
The clothes are great, and everyone loves a curfew

Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the brightest future
Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the brightest future

Scarred for life
I chiseled on the cherry chopping chest
It let me down, it made me up
And left me compressed
I flew business class
I drank too much, I can't remember
But if a heart won't start
I won't get home until September

Roy, just a boy just a boy
With the biggest head in school
Just a boy just a boy
With the widest wingspan
Just a boy just a boy
With a Cancun boarding pass
Just a boy just a piece of work
