Lyrics
i always walk on the other side of the street
and i never shake hands with the people i meet
and they always dispute the things i know
guess i'd like to tell them where to go
guess i wish they'd stop searching me
there's no god, there's no church in me
there's an evil that lurks in me
can't you see

i always comb my hair the other way
and i'm always obscure in the things i say
there's a pile of opinions in my brain
they're so different but they sound the same

paranoia (?) it's meant to be
i'm not a toy and it's plain to see
paranoia is what i mean
can't you see

well you always say it's so unusual
you always say it's strange
why i'm always acting like a fool
you know i'm never ever acting my age
acting my age
i don't drink, don't smoke, don't shave
but i'm told i'm going through a phase
and i'm told i'm thinking like a kid
but i see the world for what it is

if you want it then you'll receive
all the hatred that's locked in me
don't forget that you hold the key
wait and see

well you always say it's so unusual
you always say it's strange
why i'm always acting like a fool
you know i'm never ever acting my age
acting my age
i always walk on the other side of the street
and i never shake hands with the people i meet
and they always dispute the things i know
guess i'd like to tell them where to go

guess i wish they'd stop searching me
there's no god, there's no church in me
there's an evil that lurks in me
can't you see?

well you always say it's so unusual
you always say it's strange
why i'm always acting like a fool
you know i'm never ever acting my age

you always say it's so unusual
you always say it's strange
why i'm always acting like a fool
you know i'm never ever acting my age
i'm never ever acting my age
i'm never, never, never acting my age
