lyrics

It was awkward like F minor the first time I saw you naked.
Thought you found Jesus in me while I lied there faking.
You told your mama I was coming late again again again again.
My brain has a mind of its own, I don't know which way it goes.

Party humor, be my human, be my savior, laugh at my jokes, I've been on good behavior.
May seem filthy, sister calls me a little brother, dirty dancing is my Mexico fun.
I'm a dyke, dated guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe.

You should let me cut your hair to make you look a little better.
They'll be barking up your tree: Mary, Allison, and Heather.
Oh, be my friend or hate my guts, it doesn't matter, we're all fucked.
My brain has a mind of it's own, I don't know which way it goes.

I was California dreaming, American dream's deceiving, East coast leaving, weekend heathen.
Contemplation, admiration, salivation, masturbation : four - step Friday night.
I'm a dyke, dated guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe.

I ain't the man I could have been on the East Coast.
I ain't the man i should have been on the East Coast.
I am the man I could have been on the East Coast.
I ain't the man I should have been on the East Coast.
I am the man I could've been.

Burned bridge builder, got thrown off kilter, brightened up my filter, so I wouldn't kill her, or be sadistic, by those ballistic, or become a statistic!

I'm a dyke, dated guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe.
