lyrics

The only poster child
lonely
what is there to do?
you get me?
forget me?
all gone
The only poster child
angry
what is there to lose
when it’s you wall he’s posted on

They said “look presentable”
but I hadn’t even ironed my shirt before I left the door
out to an interview
outside view
Conform to the uniform
clothes make the man
but the man ain’t me
and it fits so tightly

And I ripped at the shreds of the cover of the bed
you laid us down in
although it’s no-one’s home
Do I perform like a seal?
or do I choose to keep it real?
That is the question...
are my friends watching?

The only poster child
lonely
what is there to do?
you get me?
forget me?
all gone
The only poster child
angry
what is there to lose
when it’s you wall he’s posted on

Down at the centre
I’ve been left of
the impression I’ve been left off
their list again
“Must be a error” they protest
that must be an error they do best
It’s the tenth time around!

“Out on the streets I’d make a minute
what you’d put a whole month in”
that’s what he’s telling me
But I just wanna be like me
and live like them
not act like he does
but his offer seems
awfully tempting right now

The only poster child
lonely
what is there to do?
you get me?
forget me?
all gone
The only poster child
angry
what is there to lose
when it’s you wall he’s posted on

The only poster child
left out to go wild
the only poster child
Is he outside there now?
what is he doing now?
Is he outside there now
Is he outside there now
