Vendergood

What were you doing at the age of seven?
Do you really not know why I skipped your lesson?
Vendergood

Trying to contain me
Keep me in line
There's a world to solve
I don't have time
Vendergood

No, I don't want to play with the other kids
I don't want to talk to the journalists
Or psychologists
I don't want to be on parade
Can't concentrate
Oh keep those dogs away!

Don't think I'm ready to get what I need
Treat me like a kid but you know I'm a different breed
Vendergood

You want to see me do some tricks?
Point at the freak yeah, I hope you're getting your kicks
Vendergood

No I don't want to sit with the scientists
But a conversation with a communist
Is on my list
I'm not taking sides 
But I can work out
How to get this right

I am too young to face this
I want the perfect life
I want to see it clearly
(But they tease me, they tease me, they tease me)

I want to put it right
But they just want to push it
They want to push me, right
(They tease me, they tease me, they tease me)

I am too young to take this
I cannot stand in line
I will try to hide
(But they tease me, they tease me, they tease me)

I will hide in the world
In a bank
In a department store
In a small room
And I will write about collecting things
To hold a transfer never hurt
Hold my breath and count to twelve
It never hurts

Never wanted to talk with the other kids
Didn't want to play with the journalists
Or psychologists
I don't want to be on parade
Can't concentrate
Oh keep those dogs away!
