There ought to be a town somewhere
Named for how I feel
Yeah, I could be the mayor down there
Say, Welcome to Sorryville

It wouldn't be on a map nowhere
You might say it that it don't exist
But if you make enough wrong turns
It'd be hard to miss

There ought to be a bridge somewhere
They could dedicate to me
I'd probably come to the ceremony
With a can of gasoline

And walk on over to the other side
And there I'd light a match
And sit and stare through the smoke and flames
Wonderin' how I'm gonna get back

Why do I do the things I do?
Was I born this way? Am I a self-made fool?
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love but I break your heart

And I know the words that'll bring you back
But I don't say nothin' as I watch you pack
I had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy bein' me

Ought to be a side show act
For freaks like me
Yeah, I could be the star of the show
With my name on the marquee

In a room with a big red button
That says, "Danger, do not touch"
Twice a day I'd mash it down
And you could watch me self-destruct

Why do I do the things I do?
Was I born this way? Am I a self-made fool?
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love but I break your heart

And I know the words that'll bring you back
But I don't say nothin' as I watch you pack
I had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy bein' me
Now, it ain't easy bein' me
