Somebody
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
So you dropped me
Held me by my feet and let me go
I fell between the seat but nothing broke
I've yet to feel that brilliant afterglow
The one I knew of years ago
And now I'm twisted
I'm twisted from the waist and spun around
Promised only sky but given ground
I realize that make-up's for a clown
The clown I knew of months ago

Chorus:
I only wanted to be somebody
So fucking bad, I came unglued
I only wanted to be somebody
And now here we are, yeah
Face to face and I'm fucking you
Huh!

So you caught me
Wishing I were better than the rest
You hit me and left bruises on my chest
And when I wouldn't cheat I spit upon your test
The test I tore up weeks ago
And now my fist is
My fist is for your face to cock the jaw
When I begin to rise, you start to fall
Now you know how it feels to drop the ball
The ball I threw back days ago

Chorus:
I only wanted to be somebody
So fucking bad, I came unglued
I only wanted to be somebody
And now here we are, yeah
Face to face and I'm fucking you

So I'll just stand right here for now
I should have won, but how?
I break a smart-ass grin
Who let the loser win?
Let's break a smart-ass grin
Let's let the loser win

Chorus 2X:
I only wanted to be somebody
So fucking bad, I came unglued
I only wanted to be somebody
And now here we are, yeah
Face to face and I'm fucking you
"About four years ago...we were lucky enough to find this gentleman, C.B. Hudson.  And of course we had just gotten dropped, and we were all pretty sappy little musicians and all pissed off at the industry...like everybody else does.  Wah wah wah.  Do something about it.  That's what we said.  So we came, and we wrote this song called Somebody.  C.B.!"
