Timing is so crucial when you're trying to be sociable
Every single one of you's the same (You're all the same)
Lying cheating stealing anyone who is approachable
Falls to be the victim of your game (stupid game game)
Lifeless laughter is your mating call
Patrick Swayze up against the wall
I don't think you've got any sense at all
But it's all right with me
I wish I was more like my friend's sister's older brother
But I'm not so fuck it, it all seems the same (it's all the same)
So wipe away those feelings that you thought you might have had
Cause I refuse to hear your voice complain
Elevated pageantry circle left to right
Civilized behavior is too much to ask tonight
Chivalry and courtesy to you their meaning's trite
But it's all right with me
Constantly complaining ever-changing verbal acrobats
Never thought I'd meet the likes of you (the likes of you)
You're mildly entertaining but soon I've had enough of that
I've got lots of better things to do (things to do)
Lifeless laughter is your mating call
Patrick Swayze up against the wall
I don't think you've got any sense at all
But it's all right with me
I won't be like these people that are pissed about their days
No I won't forget that I'm myself or fall into their ways

you grab on to his ankles as he drags you across the floor bleeding sores and open wounds you scream for more
Smile away and pass me by I hope that I believe
To live to impress to invest to by me
Chivalry and courtesy I still never see
And it's not all right with me no
Well everyone's found someone how come nobody's found me
Well I don't care but
Everyone's found someone and no one's found me




I'm an ordinary guy (just an ordinary)
I'm an ordinary guy
That's what you said
I'm an ordinary gut yeah were all the same
