  • Lyrics: It’s one of those tedious days Where I am reading for meaning Why that particular chicken? Why that particular road? All these ridiculous games Why am I bent on believing Some simple coincidence Is the intention of a bird? So I start dancing like I’m a character On a Keith Haring canvas You might notice the little lines Around my elbows and myhips Got a serpent on my shoulder Got vintage striped pajamas I’ve got rhythm in my bones I’ve got jewelry in my lips But I’m so bored So I say, “Like, what’s wrong with this picture? Like, what’s the deal with me?” And you say, “I don’t know – whatever” I say, “That’s exactly what I mean I want to make some kind of a statement But I don’t know where to begin The only statement I am making Is the state that I am in I’m bored How come I never got arrested for that pen I stole from CVS? And I never got committee to the psychiatric ward I didn’t grow up in the projects Didn’t grow up with undue duress I’ve got nothing to report I grew up bored I mean, is this all they’ve got to offer? Is this everything there is? I see temp-jobs, food courts Rent-to-own, fat kids But it’s rude to cry for mercy When it’s really not so bad I guess I sound a little stupid I guess it’s really a little sad But I’m so bored So excuse me for complaining But I’m only trying to see What this dream called The American Has got to do with me Did they think we wouldn’t notice? Did they think we wouldn’t mind? Think they’d engage a generation That’s bored out of its mind?
