What's a matter
With going places?
Take that gross look off your faces
Empty loving makes me seasick
What you're here for, I don't need it

I'll say nothing on your microphone
Till you swear to take me home
There's a one foot boy eleven stone
He's sitting on my shoulder
I'm too scared to look away,
He comes here almost everyday
And everyday I push him off and tell him boy we're over

My oh my
I think my mind is gone
I'm left here wondering
Was I crazy all along?
What do I do?
Nothing left but pray
Gonna shoot somebody
Help me drive this craziness away
I'm happy on my own

One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!

Say you like me,
But not with changes?
Shut up and forget it
These are my faces
All these colors
That surround me
All these places
Only drown me

I'll say nothing on your microphone
Till you swear to take me home
There's a one foot boy eleven stone
He's sitting on my shoulder

I'm too scared to look away,
He comes here almost everyday
And everyday I push him off and tell him boy we're over

My oh my
I think my mind is gone
I'm left here wondering
Was I crazy all along?
What do I do?
Nothing left but pray
Gonna shoot somebody
Help me drive this craziness away
I'm happy on my own

I think my mind is gone
I'm left here wondering
Was I crazy all along?
What do I do?
Nothing left but pray
Gonna shoot somebody
Help me drive this craziness away
I'm happy on my own

What's a matter
With going places?
Take that gross look off your faces
Empty loving makes me seasick
What you here for, I don't need it

One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!

One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!
One foot boy!

Happy on my own

    General CommentI think One Foot Boy refers to his conscience, the fact that it weights 11 stones(154 pounds) means that lately, his conscience has beeing weighing him down.

    The first verse shows that he doesn't need the boy's opinion on his affairs. He knows he's done something wrong, but he just doesn't want to hear it.

    The next verses just show that he's kind of losing his mind and regretting pushing him out of "his shoulder" (like the angel and devil in your shoulder). (The boy = angel). And he's crazy and he's going to "shoot somebody" because he has lost his conscience. He's going insane, but at the same time he regrets throwing him away. WHich is why he says "Get lost" but he also says "rescue me".
    The whole "I'm happy on my own" is him trying to convince himself that he doesn't need that boy.
