Oh

Lana drew a picture n school 2day, 1 that made her mother cry
A picture of a woman with a drink n her hand
Standing by a child with no eyes
Washington reaction based upon revenge, babies blown 2 kingdom come
Damn the logic, cartoon characters look better when they're on the run
Danny dropped the dime on his girlfriend
He said he didn't wanna go 2 jail alone
The seed lives n the same mind
With the thought that says we all should b stoned
And people lookin' 4 angels n the sky whenever they're broken-hearted
Love is grown, seeds r sown, a fire don't burn unless it's started

La la la... sha la la...

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
N a large room with no light?
A sophisticated mass-produced cacophony
Of knowin' situations that aren't right

Sha la la...
Every time U wake up there's a little motherfucker talkin' big stuff n ur face
(R U happy?)
U only get the kind of people that open their mouth just 2 swap feet
Welcome 2 the rat race
Oh, oh

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
N a large room with no light?
A sophisticated mass-produced cacophony
Of knowin' situations that aren't right
Oh
If U could just pass ur history class, maybe life would b alright
Until then U'll b lookin' 4 a penny n a large room with no light
Yeah

Sha la la...
Light {repeat}
