"Short Blonde Hair" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
Hey I think this is getting to me
First class living in a goldfish bowl

Just when I think
I have driven my life
Where I wanted it to be

It takes me to a place
That I do not want to go

All I ever wanted to do
Was to learn how to break
This world in two

To teach it all the tricks
I wanted it to learn
To teach it how to do
What I want it to do

No one really understands
How simple and plain
And predictable I am

Because all I ever wanted to do
Was to play guitar
In a rock and roll band
Now I'm just losing my hair and I'm
Learning how to smile
Like I just don't care

No I just don't care
(I hear them under their breath)
No, I just don't care
(What they say when they think that I can't hear them)
I see them point and I see them stare
There goes that stupid guy
With the short blond hair

Yeah, I think this is getting to me
First class living in a goldfish bowl

Just when I think
I have driven my life
Where I wanted it to be

It takes me to a place
That I do not want to go

All I ever wanted to do
Was to learn how to break
This world in two

Teach it all the tricks
I wanted it to learn
Teach it how to do
What I want it to do

No one really understands
Just how simple and plain
And predictable I am

Because all I ever wanted real bad
Was to play guitar
In a rock and roll band
Now I'm just losing my hair
And learning how to smile
Whoa!

Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da

    General CommentIt sounds like a part of him is putting himself down. He's gotten older and he has learned that he really can't control anything. That kind of useless feeling breeds doubts in our minds. These are his doubts.

    General Commentand i also like the line "learning how to smile like i just don't care," that nasty twist on Songs part1 (learning how to smile) that makes part 2 so different
