i am stupid you are smart
getting ignored just breaks my heart
thinking in the auto where am i at
i don't wanna know the answer to that

not responsible for getting it right
holding my breath every night
scared to death you will not react
i don't wanna know the reaction to that

good shape
good shape
good shape
good shape

conflict of interest
i ain't gonna quit
conflict of interest
i ain't gonna change
there's a conflict of interest
i cannot improve
i can't no i can't
i don't know how

what is the reason for this grief
is my personality too deep
you might say i'm wasting my time
trying to solve this inhuman crime

take me back to maplewood get me a job
write apologetic letter to bob
anything is better than singing this song
nothing is right but something is wrong.
