Amy Moore blew her top
Stole a car, shot a cop
Sped away 2000 miles
Didn't stop until she hit New Orleans

But that's alright
There's just one thing
Her wedding ring, or anything
She left behind, forgot to pack
How the hell is she gonna get it back?

Paperface
Paperface
I never heard of paperface
Until I moves to the west coast
Where I found that to be smooth
I had to wear a paperface

That's alright
There's just one thing
How am I supposed to sing
With this thing in my way
With this thing...
In my face
Paperface
Paperface

Only hope to see
See what's underneath
Only hope to be
The me that's underneath

Amy Moore blew her top
Stole a car, shot a cop
Sped away 2000 miles
Didn't stop until she hit New Orleans

But that's alright
There's just one thing
Her wedding ring, or anything
She left behind, forgot to pack
How the hell is she gonna get it back?

Paperface, paperface, paperface, paperface!

    General Commenti dunno what this song means, and i don't think it's really important, but it's such a good song to listen to when you're angry.

    General CommentPretty straight foward, like a lot of Weezer songs. Pretending to be something you're not in order to fit in, be smooth, or escape from authorities risks you losing your true identity.

    Great song by the way.
