I can charm all I want
and still no one can tell
what voices play on in my head
during matters of social importance
and while breaking old time moral bonds.

Two extremes, screaming loudly.
In the middle I stand alone,
agreeing with one but thrown in with the other.

Why is it wrong, why is it wrong?
Why is it wrong to enjoy what I can access?

I know you're angry and not attacking me
but don't compromise your character.

Kill the lights shining on the dying flame.
Burn out, burn out
Ignorance is bliss when your mouth is shut.
What's to gain from witless verse?
Everyone has shitty thoughts. Even more when they're shitty people.
Blame the speaker not the crowd.
There's too big a fucking mouth.

Surprise! Everyone has a poorly advised opinion of what they don't understand.
Two extremes, screaming face to face
and I'm still scared to speak up and tell world what I really think
because no matter what I'm still always wrong.
I'm the next extreme even louder
politically incorrect, but I'm not social impolite.
Well we all know everyone is different and somehow you can't get that through your head.
If it's not right keep your mouth shut.
