Lyrics (the Reptilia liner notes):
You were right... (Modern Girls Always have to go.)
right on time. (Old-Fashioned men always want a mistress.)

You were right, (Modern girls always get their way)
I was wrong (Modern men dream of what they can't say.)

That's alright.
I don't belong

Why you sitting over there? (Why you gotta say it if you know it's sounding wrong.)
(Says that he'll apologize and it won't take too long.)

Always thinking about yourself (You don't wanna trust trust nobody else)

Time... (There's a few things that are gonna have to change...)
I'm your son. (Everyone has the same opinion)

Won't you please (Your time is almost over)
Don't be mean. (We won't get the chance to do this over.)

That's alright.
I don't belong.

Why you sitting over there? (I don't want the imprint of your key upon my nose.)
(We don't have to tell no one cause no one wants to know)

Always thinking about yourself... (You don't have no happiness at home.)

... ... ... ... ... ... ... Oh yes, we're falling down... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ... ... ... Oh yes, we're falling down... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
[so fucking help me up]

You don't love me. (Always thinking about yourself)
I am an animal. (Always thinking about yourself)
I am not practical... (Always thinking about yourself...)

Was I?
