you don't really want to get
involved in my life
it's scary like a slurpee brain freeze
you don't really want to taste
more than the first kiss
because if you do
there are some things you should
know about me

i'm a messed up kid
with a messed up head
driving this wreck of a life
through all the yellows and reds
cause my messed up parents
messed up and had me
if you want something totaled
just give me the keys

so you think that's
kind of charming
everyone you know's a
little confused
but i bet they're not all
super-jinxed
black cloud bad luck shit magnet
psycho mood swing lunatics
like me

i'm a messed up kid
with a messed up head
driving this wreck of a life
through all the yellows and reds
cause my messed up parents
messed up and had me
if you want something totaled
just give me the keys
and all my friends are all a mess
they're all a mess just like me
if you put us all together
it gets really ugly

i'm a mess

i'm a messed up kid with a
mess of a life
i look for boots with my teeth
and my back with a knife
i can't explain all the fuck
ups and failures
can't remember any names
it's not something quantifiable
and it's not some kind of game
what does it mean when
everything fucks up
what does it mean when
everything sucks
what does it mean when you don't
want to leave the house
you'd rather stay in bed drunk
i'm a mess

    General CommentBasically, this song is self explainatory, I think this song kind of represents the way we all feel at times, especially in relationships. We feel as though we are failures, and are not good enough for anyone of anthing. Its a great song, I like to listen to it when I feel like a fuck up.
