Crowding around, pushing me away
you don't let me in because
I don't know what to say
Getting the look of judging eyes
just leave me be or
leave tonight
I just want to be me
not some phony popularity
I don't care what the 'in' people say
I'll wear a different hair color every day
their words just roll of my back
as they stare at my neon contacts
what would they say?
they're making me famous anyway
Look at how they talk
is it about me?
about the newest trends and
all their famous friends
You don't even know me
so why don't you just leave me be
I don't care what the 'in' people say
I'll wear a Mohawk every day
their words just roll of my back
as they roll their eyes at my wacky comebacks
what would they say?
they're making me famous anyway
Now, I'm just an outsider
nobody around
keeping my feet on my own ground
what would they say?
what would they say?
I'm tired of playing this game
I don't care what the 'in' people say
I'm not going to change, I like it this way
their words just roll of my back
Isn't it about time you're on your own track?
what would they say?
I know what they'd say?
they're making me famous anyway
