I am a puppet on a string
I am the worst thing worst thing you've ever seen
I am impossible to believe
I'm pulled by gravity shocked by my depravity
I'm irrational I'm illogical hypocritical a bleeding heart liberal
I'm an alien dressed like Gideon I'm a malcontent
a thorough modern idiot watch me as I fall
I am humble I am vain
what motivates me something I can't explain
I am outrageous and insane
I'm fueled by gasoline, alcohol and nicotine
I'm an honest hypocrite imploding modern idiot
I am a slave to my abuse convicted caught with no excuse
I'm pathetic apathetic disillusioned disconnected
I am lost I am free I'm impossible to believe
a walking chemical statistically impossible
a thorough modern idiot watch me as I fall

    General Commenthaha, I'm stealing your thunder, trillian! (great name btw, douglas adams ownz j00) anyway, I always thought this song was supposed to be mocking someone, sort of... someone who, like you said, is trying to be everything at once. oh well, even if I'm completely wrong, this song is great... pennywise fills me with all kinds of happy.

    General CommentSarcasm? Anyway, this is defiantly me, but at least I admit to it. All for the show, see me, what you created. Society ripping the bone from the dog's mouth, you need it more than me. Now I give to you, what you can't devourer. Like some whipped cream on that? It costs extra, but I know you'll take it for free.

    General CommentSeeing that Pennywise is pretty much Anarcist, I would think this song depicts the real left wing cooks who do the party no justice by acting completely idiotic. I could be wrong.

    Oh yeah, sobermindisawasted1, you might want to actually sober up before posting. You might not have so many typos. :o)

    General CommentI think its talks of politicians, or any person that claims to be everything. It is not possible, but they try and they fail
