lyrics

Get a load of this character I do
I hike my pants real high and put a rock in my shoe
and I think about the way I felt when I was with you
when I'm doing this character I do

And I look straight into the camera
You wouldn't even know it was me if you didn't know that it was me
If you could see my transformation, you'd know what I envision
If you're not in my head, you don't know what I'm thinking

Try to explain, pick a part of your brain
Leave it in the spotlight for everyone to see
And I don't care to know or to hypothesize
what they say about me when they talk about me

Break you off a piece of this character I do
I put my voice real high and sashay like a buffoon
and I say the kind of things I would never say to you
when I'm doing this character I do

and I could talk for hours and hours
You wouldn't even know it was me if you didn't know that it was me
It takes total isolation to prepare for the stint
If you're not in my head, you don't know what I'm thinking

Try to explain, pick a part of your brain
Leave it in the spotlight for everyone to see
And I don't care to know or to hypothesize
what they say about me when they talk about me

What do I do with this face?
It was a gag but now it's frozen in place
It shouldn't take this long to go back to my old ways
Groping around for the switch but I can't turn it off anymore

He's on a whole different schedule
You wouldn't know that he once was me if you didn't know that it was me
He hears a disparate drum in a separate boat
If you're not in his head, well, neither is he

Try to explain, pick a part of your brain
Leave it in the spotlight for everyone to see
And I don't even care what you say about me
when you talk about this character I pathologically do
