lyrics

my uncle george had a great dane. who chewed a paw off in connecticut. when i walk into a room i'm not afraid to feel feminine. i've never done heroin i've never done much of that. and though i may appear likable. i'm merely trying to remember i'm not on fire. oh no mom my collar bone again. my father took me mountain climbing. i've got a picture to show to you. my grandma lived in florida and her front lawn hurt my bare feet. i've never tried to kill a cricket with a firecracker on the fourth of july. i've never done much of anything that didn't have productive quality. what a goddamn liar. even though you taught me to love my body. even though i'll never be italian. i won't forget. people who act confident go far. i've got a brain in my head. it may not be your imagination. if you think i'm looking at you with contempt. i wish it could be different. but occasionally i'm cruel. i get down. i can't help but think i've long buried. a horrible childhood memory. and why do i keep on dreaming. about the queen of fourth grade cheryl englehart. and what i lack in aphrodisiac. i think i make up for in appetite. i'm a young john wayne. even though you fuck me on my birthday. even though i'm an advocate of hygiene. i won't forget. people who act confident go far. i've got a brain in my head. even though you make my bed like mom did. even though i really don't know how to be a friend. i won't forget. people who act confident go far. i've got a brain in my head
