Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
I'm not a right angle, nor an angel or a demon
I'm a man with feelings, that must mean I'm real then
Wrong I'm a fraud I'm no Freud but I'm void of
Any of the e-motions I need to e-njoy

I employ every morsel of my molecule
To trick these clever thinkers who think "Thomas cool"
Are you fools? Nah, seriously, are you foolish people?
You make no sense at all like saviours doing evil
I wanna savour the selfish feelings of freedom
Til they peel it from my epidermis like skin with needles
Retreat like eating dessert twice, greedy guts
The world had a soul, I swear I even seen it once
Then they sealed it up with covers made of laughter
Slaughter and revenge and not least of all disaster
The world had a bastard, they named it wasted space
So they drew up false assumptions and simply traced my face

[Hook: Regina Spektor]
It's like forgetting the words to your favourite song
You can't believe it, you were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat

[Verse 2]
He recalls nothing from this room but the boom
Of the bass from his youth, is it really too soon
To reflect on his past when he's only Just a Man?
There never was a plan just a hand plus some sand
Every grain that fell was the pain that he felt
In the rain he'd melt if he forgave himself
But he's lousy, drowsy, in the rain he's drowning
Wishing that the tourist guide would end this outing
But it won't ever end til he sees the exhibits
Or exhibits the characturistics his peers can live with
He's only 18 but he's fixated, 27
Is the new dying young, that's a death he could live with
He's a waste of breath taker, life absorber
So lock away your tape player, hide away your daughters
Teach your children better that these men in sagging jeans
Ain't half of what they seem, they're in tatters at the seams
It would seem

[Outro: Regina Spektor]
Whether or not to steal
He opens a window, just to feel the chill
He hears that old sound, a small boy just started to cry
Cos it's his turn but his brother won't let him try
