The Loneliest Boy In Toyland

You like talking, but you won't quit
You like Bob Dylan, I don't give a shit
You're like a camel who's waiting for a bigger needle
And try as you might, you won't be the fifth Beatle

But oh, you're not important here
And oh, yes, oh, yes, you'll go downtown
They know your name, they know when to throw you out
They know you'll never change
When change means you are

(why's it gotta be your way)

Broken by the chains of the rock and roll shades
Of the need to be the party favor boy toy renegade
Can't say no to the ladies when they're gonna pay
Your way, your way

Look at you, you'll be the loneliest boy in Toyland
Why do you do what you do to be the loneliest boy in Toyland

So you've found the floor of the well
It tastes like failure and stinks like hell
It's got nicotine walls and linoleum floors
And "Judas Priest Rules" on the back of the doors

But oh, you've got your premise made
Never enough to pull at your centigrade
Get on down to the flesh fair body trade
We know you'll never change
'Cause change means you are

Broken by the chains of the rock and roll shades
Of the need to be the party favor boy toy renegade
Can't say no to the ladies when they're gonna pay
Your way, your way

Why do you do what you do to be the loneliest boy in Toyland
'Cause pretty soon you'll be the onliest boy in Toyland

And I know you don't want the government stealing all your melodies
Grimlock's Dinobots stomping on the Kennedys
Tin foil hat doesn't cover your extremities
Anyway
And your fingers go when your mind says stay
