Lyrics:

Verse 1

There's a hole in my goodwill shoes
From walking down this east side street too long.
I'm trying to get out,
Get out while I can.
'Cause this town's wandering,
Years have come and gone.

Chorus

I can't express myself.
I just impress myself.
Of all your choices man,
You think you just could've got one right.

I never wanted this.
Dirty white trash kiss.
Thanks for giving me your blue life special life.

Verse 2

The kid next door with the filthy face
Scrapes his gum right off the sidewalk.
A ripped t-shirt, a new used pair of jeans,
He's the clothesline collector backyard parking lot.

Pre-Chorus

Now I know
This is all your fault.

Chorus

Interlude

N-|ah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah
N-|ah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah.
"                   "   2 more times

Chorus

Nah-nah-nah....
(chorus in background)
Attention K-mart shoppers.
