You're Not In On the Joke Lyrics

by Cobra Starship

Don't take them faces at their value in a cynical town
Yeah, can't you smell the stale air?
I had no skill but I had heart so then I turned it around
And just remember

I'm no cynic, you know I'm just getting bored
I'm no cynic, you know I got a heart of gold

They say I'm cold, cold, cold, baby, why so cold?
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Don't get offended if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
If you see them laughing, don't follow in
'Cause they're the butt of my joke

I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke

I got my picture in the paper and my parents were proud
Hey, kid, that's not a bad job, yeah
Next thing you know peculiar faces start hanging around
Dear Lord, could you spare me?

I just got one side to show you all
My ass is awesome so smile when you're kissing it all

They say I'm cold, cold, cold
Baby, why so cold?
I'm super sweet sealed with a kiss
Call your professor if there's something you miss

I only show you what I want you to see
I got my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
If you seem them laughing, don't follow in
'Cause they're the butt of my joke

I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke

No, you don't know, you don't know me
No, you don't know, you don't know me
No, you don't know me, no, oh, no, oh

I only show you what I want you to see
I got my tongue, tongue in my cheek
If you see them laughing, don't follow in
'Cause they're the butt of my joke

I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic, you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke
