What's this little lie 
They keep on telling me 
It's just another high 
They keep on selling me 
I was only five 
They fed me so much jive 
They said just have a ball Just be a Barbie doll 
They churned and burned me out 
Until they turned me out 
Over and over again 

Mama I'm strange 
The thoughts and the wants are the locks 
On the back of my brain 
I'm descending pretending I'm blending 
I'm going insane 
And they want me to change 
Mama I'm strange 

I'm on a shaky wall 
I'm tripping down the hall 
And all the king's men can't 
Can't sew me up again 
I've got a leaky head 
Don't know the full extent 
I'm drowning in my bed 
I'm just an accident 
They chewed and blew me out 
Until they threw me out 
Over and over again 

If I could tranquilize 
I might just vaporize 
They couldn't supervise 
They couldn't criticize 
I have no evidence 
I have no reverence 
It makes no difference 
I have no innocence 

Help me mama help me now
