I'm as American as Saturday Night Live
just another sad sort cha cha choking on the pie

feel like I'm stuck on a ride to an all time low

Excuse me if I seem a little amiss
but I can't seem to see myself clear of all this
I try to get along, I just end up pissed
at all the things people say and the things they dismiss

you tell me I'm normal
just not normal enough
