I'm so iconoclastic; I'm clastic!
I only want you to think I'm fantastic.
I'll participate in what you believe,
If you give me the attention!
Yeah, yeah that's the only compensation
I wanna be included in your conversation.

So am I "in" or am I "out"
What is there to think about! ?
What is that paint brush for?
Are you preparing to draw me?
No wait, please don't! I am scared,
Of what I'll see...
I'm not a perfect picture portrait,
But I am working on it!
I've been thinking about being cool,
I must have to admit!

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds,
But if wasn't for you,
We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds.
How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?

I think I'll perpetuate a pre-existing runway,
I guess it's almost as cool as creating a fresh
New elaboration yourself.

It's a marker! It's a sign!
It's something we define!
It already exists, but you helped refine!
An emblem for all your aesthetic kin,
To recognize you by!

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds,
But if wasn't for you,
We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds.
How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?

Obscenity is a crutch for traffic drives.
If you need to use the restroom just ask politely.
I like the way I do it, better then the way you're not.
Lifting up the toilet seat was the way I was taught.

It has to be a unanimous determination.
Because one opinion would be a pointless appreciation.

Yeah, sure thanks for the invitation!
Don't want to be included in your conversation...
It's too late!
We've over thrown, I took all your friends,
And you're all alone.

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds,
But if wasn't for you,
We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds.
How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?

    Maybe if you typed properly I would have an answer to that poorly constructed thought, if you just want to argue be my guest but most people do not like ignorance.

    Ok I think this song is about being labeled or stereotyped, and he's sort of afraid of what stereotype he'll be put into, or what he'll be labeled. (are you preparing to draw me? no wait, please dont. im am scared of what ill see) He just wants to fit in. (i only want you to think im fantastic)(i wanna be included in you conversation) Now he does not what commercialized things (blame it on the coporate skyscrapers.) are creating him. He doesnt know what stereotype he'll fit into either (how am i supposed to choose which one i belong to) and just wants to be himself. hes saying whatever label he gets will be his reputation (its a marker, its a sign, it's something we define... you helped refine.
    an emblem for all your aesthetic kin, to recognize you by)

    Pretty much he knows he's going to be labeled, but doesnt know where he fits in and is honestly afraid he'll be a freak or something.

    It's called "things that rhyme with orange" because there's not point to it. Just like there's not point to categorizing and judging people to be in the "cool" crowd or not.

    It is about how everyone is obsessed with different social statuses and how it is easy for people to get left out and forgotten about, and how it is partially media's fault because it influences what you should look and act like but it could also be blamed on the people who support the stick social standards. Also he is trying to find out where he fits in.

    Someone who has begged for people's approval in a society where everyone is forced to sort themselves into categories. They don't like what they're choosing to be for other people. When the person finally is accepted they reject the person who originally rejected them.
