"Armatage Shanks" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Stranded, lost inside myself
My own worst friend and my own closest enemy
I'm branded, maladjusted
Never trusted anyone, let alone myself

I must insist
On being a pessimist
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind

Elected, the rejected
I perfect the science of the idiot
No meaning and no healing
Self-loathing freak and introverted deviot

I must insist
On being a pessimist
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind

Say whatever, oh, whoa
Oh, whoa
Say whatever, oh, whoa
Oh, whoa
Shoot

Stranded, lost inside myself
My own worst friend and my own closest enemy
Elected, the rejected
I perfect the science of the idiot

I must insist
On being a pessimist
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind

I'm gettin' pissed
I'm a worthless pessimist
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind

    General CommentYes, the Finnish girl is right: what does "deviot" mean? I found Deviot is a village in New Zealand and a Power Ranger protagonist, but I don't think it refers to that... -.-

    P.S.: the missing word beside "Wooh" could be "singularly" o "singulary"? But I'm not sure it makes sense...
