lyrics

Everybody's out to get me
Out to get me
Everybody's out to get me
Everybody's trying to paint me as incompetent, incompetent
Everybody's out to get me
Nobody likes me
Everybody's out to get me

Everything's been so hard
I think it's time I found a new schoolyard

I've tried to be so nice
But my future wife is cold as ice

If they don't like me I'll burn this whole place down

Everybody's out to get me
Everybody's out to get me
Nobody likes me
Everybody's trying to paint me as incompetent, incompetent
Everybody's out to get me
Nobody likes me
Everybody's out to get me

You piss on my endeavors
I can stare at you like this forever

You think I am below you
But you see the face I choose to show you

And if you don't like me, I'll burn this whole place down

Everybody's out to get me
Out to get me
Everybody's out to get me
Everybody's trying to paint me as incompetent, incompetent
Everybody's out to get me
Nobody likes me
Everybody's out to get me
etc

I've got you in my mind
Now I'm sitting here just biding time

To say I'm mentally defective
Makes me feel so ineffective

You can all go straight to Hell
You just want to feel good about yourselves
By putting me down and dragging me down
And putting and dragging me down

And if you don't like me, I'll burn this whole place down

Everybody's out to get me
Out to get me
Everybody's out to get me

Everybody's out to get me
Out to get me
Everybody's out to get me
Everybody's trying to paint me as incompetent, incompetent

Everybody's out to get me
Everybody's out to get me
Nobody likes me
Everybody's out to get me
Out to get me
Everybody's trying to paint me as incompetent, incompetent
They all think I'm stupid
They don't get me
But you'll get me
