Your mother finally took all of her money, and put it where her mouth used to be
Telling anybodies ear, about her friends that disappeared, and how she’s sailing further out to sea
Your father’s spending all of his vacation, learning foreign names for all his fears
While spirits are detected, from the day that he’s collected, turned out to be just ringing in his ears

You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, everything they’re telling you is wrong
You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, babe I think you know where you belong

Your sister’s always mortally offended, by the mispronunciation of her name, telling all her newer clients, that the W is silent, before she sends them out the way they came
Your brother’s sends me all his latest poems, about his secret dreams of learning how to dance, and his lines are meant for you, asking when you’re coming through, so he can tell his supervisor six months in advance

You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, everything they’re telling you is wrong
You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, babe I think you know where you belong

Your old flame is still counting up his money (your old friend is still counting up his money)
In a secret lair he built behind the shelf (in a secret lair he built behind the shelf)
When a chance in repetition (when a chance in repetition), Lead me not into temptation (lead me not into temptation)
I’m pretty sure he knows the way himself (I’m pretty sure he knows the way himself)

You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, everything they’re telling you is wrong
You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, babe I think you know where you belong

You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, everything they’re telling you is wrong
You look like one of them, but you talk like one of us, babe I think you know where you belong

(Oh)
