In elementary I was the lowest class,
A bitter little kid good in science and math.
Well, I never had a problem making other kids laugh
When they'd steal my lunch or kick me in the ass

But I could see the surface from there,
Choking up and grasping for air,
No sanctuary but my secret lair,
My reason for resistance was clear.

Telephone never heard a ring
To my comic books I would cling,
Talking to girls was an alien thing, yeah

Fat boy!
Like I was when I was young, and it's hard growing up when they're putting you down.
Fat boy!
Like I'm living right now when I ain’t got luck, I ain’t got nothing.

So I slammed my door and I locked myself in
With dungeons and dragons and Todd McFarlane,
Staring so hard at the pages I pecked
Just to steal my attention away from the attacks
