Did you ever take a moment just to stop and look around and found
You might have missed a meeting or two?
All the smiling faces of the strangers that surround me
And I start to think I don't have a clue
Is it ignorance or bliss that fuels the never-ending happiness
That I've always seemed to elude?
Is it them? Is it me? Yank the starter on the litany
And try to keep from coming unglued
'Cause it looks like the joke's on me
'Cause I'm the only one that isn't really having fun
It looks like the joke's on me
It's only just begun
Fade in, waiting on...
A massive mug of coffee
That I'm hoping will arouse me
From a zombie like state I've accrued
It's another somber morning
Masturbate and greet the dawn in
As I'm yawning through the self abuse
Pick a suit that isn't stained
Floor it down the freeway
I MUST NOT BE LATE
'Cause the boss is out of Vicodin
And now real pain begins
So why he's laughing?
'Cause it looks like the joke's on me
'Cause I'm the only one that isn't really having fun
It looks like the joke's on me
I signed the dotted line
To be the perfect punch line
And nobody told me
That I'd be the folly
'Cause it looks like the jokes on me
The agony of defeat
With a catchy melody
Standing dead on my feet
Maybe someone should bury me
A natural born loser
Smothered in humor
It looks like the joke's on me
Stumbling down the road of life
Ignoring all the good advice
I never had the sense to use
But we've all got a path to choose
And stupid is as stupid do's
Maybe I was born to amuse
It looks like the joke's on me
'Cause I'm the only one that isn't really having fun
It looks like the joke's on me
Forget humility and I'll provide the comedy
It looks like the joke's on me
You check my spine you'll find a burden and a kick me sign
It looks like the joke's on me
I'm just a bland mime yanking on a fake line
I'll keep on pulling
But who am I fooling?
'Cause it looks like the joke's on me
