One awkward conversation can ruin my whole day
In the company of strangers with some vulgar shit to say
Cocktail hour social like an obsolete machine
Spitting anecdotes and boring jokes from someone else’s spleen

And i always seem to miss the point completely
(and here I am again)

Culture-barren trainwreck and it’s hard to look away
But I’m yawning like a kid in a carpet store
Refusing to be interesting is a funny way to go
But I guess you know your business
You’re the one who makes the windstorm blow

And I always say I miss the point completely
(and here I am again, here I am again)
And I always wish you’d behave more discreetly;
It’s kind of puzzling, but you’re falling into place
(it’s what you do best)

You’re a popular opinion
You’re an easy thing to foster
You’re an ostentatious tourist
You’re a predictable posture
You are a record left on the dashboard
You’re a nasty little hang

You miss the point completely
I get the point exactly
You miss the point completely
I get the point exactly
You miss the point completely
I get the point exactly

No, you miss the point completely
No, I get the point exactly
No, you miss the point completely
No, you miss the point-a!
