I don’t want to be right
It’s more fun being wrong
But I don’t feel like a beast today
Keep a lid on my tongue
Take steps to fix everything
Make a motor that hums

I’m too tall to be your baby brother
I got some big ideas won’t fit in your hand
Everybody’s got a situation
Everybody’s got their own little custom plan

Take a look at the kid
See him play his guitar
Making words that don’t add up right
More than a little bizarre
Take stock of everything
Did he push it too far?

Who’s that laughing?
I must’ve missed the punchline
Those jokes are out of fashion
You can catch up on the rewind
Turn the tables over, you’re not just getting older
You’re getting tired, getting scare and you have only just begun
