Can't for the life of me think of what to do or say
Can't for the life of me think of what to do
From time to time I think I might be Jesse James
Laws aren't made for me and you
And if you peel back my skin
You'll probably see a whole gang in there
Of people, mainly thieves and freaks
A liar and a scary man
Who easily disembark whenever they please
I think I'll stick to what I know and dig myself into this hole
It's not so bad if you don't mind the heat
Can't for the life of me think of what to do or say
Can't for the life of me think of what to do
From time to time I think I might be the Invisible Man
Without a shadow or cool hairdo
And if you peel back my skin you'll probably see
No one's in there that's not been hassled by some fools
Who fear their numbers though they're few
I think I'll sit and let their notions brew
I think I'll stick to what I know and dig myself into this hole
Even superheroes once were losers
When they leap they run around and subjugate all those who keep them down
They put on funny masks and dance around in the dirt and broken glass
They're getting stronger still despite the times
That they're kept under heel
They'll never go away
