lyrics:
=======

it's like i dressed up in my mama's clothing
it's like i'm talking to a voice that doesn't exist
It's like i got a wire crossed upstairs
But all i want is just a little truth and that's it

they say i'm mental but i'm just confused
they say i'm mental but i've been abused
they say i'm mental 'cause i'm not amused by it all

another anchorman is on the tv
he's got that far away and vacant look in his eye
i turn the channel but nothing is changing
the only truth is that everything is a lie

they say i'm mental but i'm just confused
they say i'm mental but i've been abused
they say i'm mental 'cause i'm not amused by it all

there's truth in everything there's truth in lies
with all this knowledge i think i'm gonna be wise

they say i'm mental but i'm just confused
they say i'm mental but i've been abused
they say i'm mental 'cause i'm not amused by it all
not at all 
not at all 
not at all 
not at all 
not at all 
not at all 
not at all

I don't know how long ago you posted this, but it's not too late for me to say thank you. I've been teaching my girlfriend how to play guitar for a while, and since we're both eels fans this could have been written for us!
