APPEARS ON


I got tossed in this world and started to sink
The first time they made me feel stupid
Then they got me so mixed up I started to think
That they knew me better than I did
Now I work for some guy that I don't even know
Hell, I'm not even sure what we do
I just dream of them places I wanted to go
I load boxes 'til they say I'm through

That's how they got me right where they want me
I want to be normal so bad that it haunts me
Now I'm right where they want me to be
Working and watching TV

I've got a woman that I love so much
God, I can't hardly stand to be near her
Her light shines as warm as her timid young touch
But I've learned too well how to fear her
We wanted to travel, we wanted to fly
The world always seemed so amusing
But it took us so long to just barely get by
Now we're tired and it all seems confusing

Yes, that's how they got me right where they want me
I want to be normal so bad that it haunts me
Now I'm right where they want me to be
Working and watching TV

I'm gonna make this a day to remember so long
I'm gonna grab her and gas up that car
We're gonna run like the kids in those old Springsteen songs
Until nobody knows who we are
Yes, I'm gonna put us right where I want us
I doubt if anybody around here is gonna miss us
We can run to where we want to be
Break out and declare ourselves free
To sit back and watch TV
