lyrics

suit crashed my school today
with brochures and righteous claims
told us to write down our names
said honor might surely come
said we'd be smiled upon
my friend signed up and they snatched and run
with him

'cause nobody ever loved us
nobody ever wanted us
but everybody wanted to own us

took a job sellin' plastic boats
twice priced and halfway broke
i was always on the prowl for daft white folk
sold out my stash six times
a thousand duckets made and ten was mine
bought some medicine and quickly resigned

'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me

beat drums for an oldish man
with good teeth and flattish abs
said my rhythm took 'im back to nights long past
said he could pay in gold
if he could take me home
he made it so hard to say no

'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me

strong sugar done messed me up
i vibrate and spin and such
but don't try to kick out my crutch
'cause i've found a balance now
i eat less and sleep above ground
make noises constant and loud

you're gonna hear me comin'
you're gonna hear me screamin' out
"what the fuck have i done here?
what the hell do i do now?
'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me"
