Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Oh why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

Oh why is the world filled with people
It makes for a painful life
You'll disappoint me if you don't disappoint me
Come and dance with the tip of my knife

Why is the night filled with laughter
At expense of the sickest of jokes
While the world is a blot and it's cistern's fill up
On the dross and the shit we call folks

Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

Oh why is the world filled with the people
They snear and they snide and they moan
And the way I am now it seems I am one of them
Having grudges of my own

And why is this street a-crawling with cockroaches
Insects with two arms, two legs
Leaving their stink and their filth and their debris
I'll break all their faces like eggs

Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

Oh why is the world filled with people
A-choking the air with their breath
Grunting like hogs in the sludge and the sewerage
Cringing from wonderful death
Oh why do my ears have to ring with their bantering
Bitching and ignorant words
Giving me aches with pathetic opinion
People, it's fact, are insufferable turds

Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

Oh why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Oh why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone

And I can't bear the little creeps
That tell me they hate my hair
They're always incredibly ugly
If they dropped dead tomorrow I wouldn't care
They feel that they have to comment
Have to put up with their penneth-worth
They're sick, hypocritical, mincing, unwitty
Not worth a spit in the dirt

They're not worth a spit in the dirt
They're not worth a spit in the dirt

Oh why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
Oh why can't I be on my own
Just me and the world alone
