I got a great big smile
But I got rotten teeth
My posture's kinda good
From my knees to my feet

And if I cut my hair
Most people they won't stare
But if people don't stare,
Who will care, who will care

I got me a tattoo, it makes me feel so tough
If someone would fight me please
God I need to be touched
The closest that I get

To ever feel your kiss
I get to take a drag off a used cigarette
Sometimes I think I'm better off dead
But then if I'm dead, they'll bury my head

If I can't use my lips, can't kiss the air
Why kiss the air?
(Cause it's the air you breathe)
Sometimes I wish I wish

I wish that I was sick
Cause then I would belong to a popular plauge
Sometimes I wish I wish
I wish that I was green

I could fight for my rights, I would march standing tall
All I wanted was you, all I wanted was you
But you don't notice me
You despise, you despise

Sometimes I think I'm better off dead
But then if I'm dead, they'll bury my head
If I can't use my lips, can't kiss the air
Why kiss the air?

(Cause it's the air you breathe)
The closest that I get to ever feel your kiss
I get to take a drag off a used cigarette
All I wanted was you

All I wanted was you
But you don't notice me
You despise, You despise
If all you wanted was

If all you wanted was life
You would then recognize me
