I wanted to change the world
But I couldn't even change my underwear
When the shit got really really out of hand
I had all the way up to my hairline
Which keeps receding like my self-confidence
As if I ever had any of that stuff anyway
I hope I didn't destroy your celebration
Or your BarMitzvah, your party or your Christmas
You put me in this cage and threw away the key
It was this us and some shit that did me in
You tell me that my life is based on a lie
I casually mentioned that I pissed in your coffee
I hope you know that all I want from you is sex
To be with someone who looks smashing in athletic wear
And if your haircut isn't right you'll be dismissed
You'll get your walking papers and you can leave now.

I don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
I don't know what it is you want to want from me
You really have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else
Why don't you bore the shit out of somebody else
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish
A weakling coward a pathetic little fraud

Who's gonna be the one to save me from myself
You better bring your stun gun and perhaps a crowbar
You better pack a lunch and get up really early
And you should probably get down on your knees and pray
It's really fun to look embarrassed all the time
Like you could never cut the mustard with the big boys
I really don't know who the fuck you think you are
Could I please see your license and your registration
I don't know what to want from this world
I really don't know what to want from this world
Don't know what it is you want from me
You really have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don't you take it out on somebody else
Why don't you bore the shit out of somebody else
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish
A weakling coward a pathetic little fraud

So Jesus hasn't come in here to pick you up
You'll still be sitting right there ten years from now
You're just a sucker but we'll see who gets the last laugh

    I don't get the queen of denmark thing (which is mistakenly left out in these lyrics)? It sounds like some kind of punishment? Whats wrong with denmark ?

    I don't know exactly what she is saying but she sure does sound pissed off. This cd sounds a lot like her music back when she did faith and courage. Working out issues. Shame that we gain from her pain. I love her passion and anger release. Her music somehow resonates with things in my own life and listening to her helps me clear my own mind.
