VERSE 2: Riff 1 w/ lyrics

     seems so sick to the hypocrite norm
     running their boring drills
     but we are an elite race of our own
     the stoners, junkies, and freaks


VERSE 3: Riff 2 w/ lyrics

     are you happy?  i am man
     content and fully aware
     money, statues, nothing to me
     'cause your life's empty and bare

VERSE 4: w/ Riff 2 and lyrics

     you can't understand a user's mind

     i'll bet you'd be doing like me
     and it ain't so bad


CHORUS
