It's like I'm dressed up in my mother's clothing
It's like I'm talking to a voice that doesn't exist
It's like I got a wire crossed upstairs
But all I want is just a little truth and that's it
They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental cause I'm not amused by it all
Another anchor man was on the TV
He's got that far away vacant look in his eyes
I turn the channel but nothing is changing
The only truth is that everything is a lie
They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental cause I'm not amused by it all
There's truth in everthing, there's truth in lies
All this knowledge but I think I'm gonna be wise
They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental cause I'm not amused by it all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
