"Crazy" Means "Borderline Retarded"


What do I believe is real?

Let me think about it

First of all, I know ev'ry one

__talks shit about me

But are the neighbors really doing so

__all day long?

Are strangers really spying on me?

Did my dreams before I had a dream-

__-catcher really predict the future?

I can't say "no"

For I have too much evidence

The fact that I can hear you

__behind my back

The fact that somebody really did

__throw rocks at B.A.R.T, and

____break windows

The fact that I know about it all

Though, does seem to be too coincidental

And, I, of course

End up being labeled as paranoid


And hallucinating

But is it fair to take away my

__rights for sleeping pills

And make me disorganized in thought?

I know I don't make sense when

__I stay up too late

I know the Tv. really isn't talkin'

__about me in thee other room

Is that only 'cause I am taking

__my medication though?

You'd think "yes"

But what am I 'posed to do with

__my future, having a lower I.Q.?

I can't possibly be sane enough, to

__work my ass off like you

If sane means a normal I.Q.

__in the first place

So don't tell me to "get a fucking

__job" then, bitch!
