Oh, you humor me today
Calling me out to play
With your telescope eyes, metal teeth
I can't be seen with you, you freak

Go cry, go run away
Let your short legs carry you away
With your big dress and your dirty hair
Your pen's waiting for you
Just get far, far away from me
I don't want your disease

Please don't make me cry
Please don't make me cry
I'm just like you
I know you know
I'm just like you
So leave me alone

Dear Matthew why can't you see
You're just not near enough like me
With your telescope eyes, metal teeth
I can't be seen with you

[Chorus: x4]

Oh, you humor me today

    General CommentI totally agree with helenrips, if you've seen that movie you would know. She's talking to a friend she decides she thinks she's become too good for, or something along those lines. So you, with the glasses and braces, get away from me because you're just like me and I'd rather not be just like you.

    General CommentActually I think that this song has nothing to do with ghosts at all. But instead, it is about seeing something or someone strange and thinking him to be a "ghost" or a strange drifter with the traits of a monster.

    And the girl (or boy) has a particular sick(sick NOT meaning "wrong" but rather squeamish or ill) interest in this "ghost" for she secretly knows that they share some of the same traits, but she does not want others
    to know of this acknowledgement, so she is telling the "ghost" to "go away" and to quit calling her "out to play".

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Heather Matarazzo's character in Welcome to the Dollhouse. And the way she treats her best male friend near the climax of the story.

    General CommentI don't think those lyrics are right...

    I'm not sure what she's talking about exactly. Is it about some kid with glasses (teloscope eyes) and braces (metal teeth) that is sort of enarmored by her? Maybe a friend who is a "loser" and she doesn't want to be associated with him or her, but she feels sad because inside they are just the same.

    General CommentWow. I need to seriously think about getting their debut LP. I don't go for female rock vocalists that much, but wow. Sounds a little like Lindsay Buckingham.

    General CommentGreat song. They stripped it down a little and sped up the tempo for the LP version. It's a nice change for a song I have grown very fond of.
