I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the man in the mirror
Then I laughed and I said
"Oh silly me
That's just me" Then I proceeded
To brush some stranger's teeth
But they were my teeth
And I was weightless
Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
I couldn't tell you
What the hell it was supposed to mean
But it was a Monday
No a Tuesday
No a Wednesday Thursday Friday
Then Saturday came around
And I said
"Who's this stupid clown
Blocking the bathroom sink?"

All he ever wanted
Was to be someone in life
Who was just like
"All I want is to just have fun
Live my life like a son of a gun"
I could be one thousand miles away
But still me
What'd I say?

Then I woke up one morning
Didn't recognize the man in the mirror
Then I laughed and I said
"Oh silly me
That's just me" Then I proceeded
To not comb some stranger's hair
Never was my style
But I couldn't tell you
What the hell it was supposed to mean
Cuz it was a Monday
No a Tuesday
No a Wednesday Thursday Friday
Then Saturday came around
And I said
"Who's this stupid clown
Blocking the bathroom sink?"
But he was sporting all my clothes
I gotta say pretty pimpin

All he ever wanted
Was to be a man
But he was always
A little too cute to be admitted and then all was lost
He was always a thousand miles away
While still
Standing
In front of your face

Then he woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror
Then he laughed and said
"Oh silly me
That's just me" Then I proceeded
To brush some stranger's teeth
But they were my teeth
And I was weightless
Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
And I couldn't tell you
What the hell it was supposed to mean
Cuz it was a Monday
No a Tuesday
No a Wednesday Thursday Friday
Then Saturday came around
And I said
"Who's this stupid clown
Blocking the bathroom sink?"
But he was sporting all my clothes
I gotta say pretty pimpin

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

I woke up this morning
Didn't recognize the boy in the mirror...

    My InterpretationIt's about exhaustion. When you're startled by the man or woman in the mirror, it's a bad sign and often an effective wake up call which means you need to wake up and look at something that made you mentally exhausted.

    Song MeaningIt's about being a man who can stand up to criticism. Also seeing yourself in the mirror as a stranger. Then thinking you are dressed somewhat OK (pretty pimping).

    My InterpretationThis is a song about finding yourself and having the strength to be it in the face of adversity.

    All of our lives we're told who to be, and until we decide it for ourselves, we'll continue to be somebody else. And then when you find the true you, and the past you fails to recognize it, It won't matter, because you'll know who are really are, and you'll like it
