Rap and Metal
grass and 'shrooms
Another bottle of vodka down your throat
Wearing black and collars and shiny leather too
Now you feel complete and with the flow
But everyone out there still ignores you

Why don't you understand me?
My own insanity I did sell
To be unique, to be distinct
To be different, just like everybody else

Bubble-gum pop and Top 20 hits
MTV and crack-cocaine
All the latest fashions, all the greatest styles
Nike sneakers, silver crosses
And a plastic god to kneel before
A social climber, but your gains will soon be losses

Why don't you accept me?
Why do you think I'm an empty shell?
I am unique, I am distinct,
I am different, just like everybody else

Another night, another date,
Dissapointment and despair
and depression that's eating at your heart
A smile, a tear, a turn away
"I thought you were something more"
And she left you there with eyes wide open and nothing left to say

I used to be a special soul
Now I'm nobody, oh well
I was unique, I was distinct,
Now I'm just different like everybody else
