lyrics

Chorus:
If there is a life of nonsensical madness I am livin' it
If there is a structure to existence I'm ad-libbin' it
I've been knighted with the position of village idiot
I've been knighted with the position of village idiot

Verse 1:
Well I came from the kind of town where there's peace but there's no honesty
So I turned into a fucking clown by day one, but what the fuck do you want from me?
I've already done my time hearing the family history
Come on, try just one more time to sit me down and educate me
And now for the propaganda I want to deeply disappoint you
I want to become the kind of person you want to come nowhere near you
I want to be the one who stands between you and your pride
I want to be the shame that grows and ruptures you from inside

Chorus

Verse 2:
Fuck you!
I woke up and put on my high heels and crawled out of the garbage can
Was coincidentally on the scene every time the shit hit the fan
This is what I get for refusing to bow to any man
I couldn't tell you when on earth my descent into hell began
And now for the propaganda I want to show you it went nowhere
Tried to teach me how to hate and instead taught me how not to care
One day you'll wake up and you'll ask yourself where the hell I went
And this will be the fucking day, the day of your discontent

Chorus

From the day I was born, the first time I let you down
I tore out my hair, I haunted your fucking dreams
Wrote myself threats in my own fucking blood
Idiot!

Won't fight for my life but I will fight for this
I won't stand by and let ignorance be bliss
I am out of my damn fucking mind cause of you
I'm out of my mind! Fuck you! Idiot!

Fuck you.
