They Might Be Giants (sometimes abbreviated as TMBG) is an American alternative band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

Currently, the members of TMBG are Flansburgh, Linnell, Marty Beller, Dan Miller, and Danny Weinkauf. They are best known for an unconventional and experimental style of alternative music.

I'm a mess 
Even at my best 
I'm dismantling my chances 
Even as I win 
A bunch 
I got tripwires to finesse 
I'm a mess 

Now I ain't right 
If there's a test tonight 
I will ask for an extension 
As I slide my desk 
A bit 
Toward the conman dressed in white 
I ain't right 

In fact it's messier still 
That mess is a hook that drags me along 
And now that mess has an entourage 
All dressed in dungarees 
What went wrong? 

I confess 
And like a chess piece, yes 
I have rolled under your piano 
That you don't play 
A lot 
But I'm sorry, I digress 
I'm a mess 

So let me out 
Don't want to be your mouse 
I want to find a softer spot 
For my crash landing 
Not much to talk about 
Let me out 

In fact it's messier still 
That mess on the loose and leading the mob 
They march with pitchforks and torches now 
They have your old ID disavowed
