Bully (Bully!)

Post by Wages »

Hoglen and Wages.... early and low-fied

Bully (capo 2nd)

the bully is hidden in bushes of green
his patient time soon gives up a scream
the scrawny and awkward will fall to their knees
afraid for their lives and their lunch money

the dance of their fear is unscripted but true
they've been given practice each afternoon
more often than not they'll yield to the pain
somehow along the way they will escape

a teacher, a parent, or a crosswalk guard
comes to the rescue when he goes too far
but sometimes the best bully cure around
is the bigger bully from the edge of town

he rides the bus home unless with a cop
so he's rarely around to make this guy stop
he only does it because he knows
it's a cash cow to step on bully's toes

She'd got a little drunk that night
But it's all right, she was with friends,
She thought, and in the morning it
Would be okay. But then the shame
Of it came home -- she'd blacked out, had
A bit too much, and now there were
These photos on the Internet.

I don't remember this, she thought,
But now her head was reeling and
It all became a blur, and then
It all came back. Her face lit by
the phone that trembled in her hand,
she lost all hope, and all that night
Her tears would make the pillow wet.

It's all my fault, she told herself,
I'm such an ass, they're right to laugh,
I 'll hide away, I can't face this,
I want to die. I'll kill myself,
That's how to end this cruel joke,
This gloating from the bully crowd --
Their laughter choking on regret.

The networks ran a lede next day
About a girl who passed away.
And everybody paused a while
To read her tale. This sweet young girl,
It broke their hearts, they wished she'd lived,
They wished she'd told them how she felt,
They'd put away that stupid bully get.

I turn the flashers on
In a line that's getting long
Why the hell do we drive so slow?

In my pocket a picture lies
Of a girl with pale blue eyes
Who felt it was time for her to go

All because she had no-one to turn to
All because none of us could see

That bully made her feel like
Nothing that she felt was real
And no-one here would ever give a damn
That bully made it tough
For a girl who had it rough
To find some place to go
To let somebody know
And even a guy like me would let her down

I remember seeing her
But truth be told it's all a blur
All the kids start to look alike

Still I wish that I could say
A kind remark to her today
I would try to make her feel all right

All because she had no-one to turn to
All because none of us could see

That bully made her feel like
Nothing that she felt was real
And no-one here would ever give a damn
That bully made it tough
For a girl who had it rough
To find some place to go
To let somebody know
And even a guy like me would let her down

I push my broom most every day
Countless children in the way
No-one ever has the time
To talk to me
Talk to me

All because we have no-one to turn to
All because no-one ever sees

That bully made her feel like
Nothing that she felt was real
And no-one here would ever give a damn
That bully made it tough
For a girl who had it rough
To find some place to go
To let somebody know
And even a guy like me would let her down
And even a guy like me would let her down

Stand outside in the country
Where the sun shines and there's no money
Lured outside the wall I stood alone
Tried to run away
Vowed to take control of all that's sown

That's the bully.

By myself in the silence
Early morn after the violence
Never mind that all is breaking down
Time to make them pay
Now it's time for us to take revenge

That's the bully.

Fast Verse
I like to cry when at the ocean
My tears they seem so very small there
Mother ran away
My daddy didn't really ever want to be with her
She never knew when she was ever gonna see him
She ran away with my birthday clown
Here's the grapes
With my hammer gonna show you the wrath

Slow Verse
I've been held back more times than I can count
Which is probably why I've been held back I guess
I find it incredibly weird, why do you do that?
You just keep on hitting yourself again

Go right on say "uncle" right now
Sometimes I make fun of the sun
"Hey gas ball, you suck!"
I find it incredibly weird, why do you do that?
Why are you endangering yourself?

Someday for show and tell
I'll bring my can of tomato paste
You just keep on hitting and hitting yourself
I find it incredibly weird, why do you do that?

Fast Verse

Chorus
I am Nelson Mandela Muntz
I see by your black eye, I told you once
I only want respect from you
Your lunch money too!

Look at that kid sitting a corner,
Head buried in another book.
Never see him talk to anybody,
All we got for him is dirty looks.
Look at the headbanger with the pimples,
Black T-Shirt with torn up jeans,
We all think he's some kinda freak,
Probably eating LSD

Thank God We Got a Bully!
Handle a problem like that!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Kicking Ass!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Choke those chicken necks!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Don't take no shit!

That girls got a big pink mohawk,
I bet she's some kinda dyke.
Like that dork in drama class,
Somebody saw him kissing a guy.
We wish they'd all stay at home,
So sick of them always grossing us out,
We'd be much better off,
If somebody beat them to a pulp

Thank God We Got a Bully!
Handle a problem like that!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Kicking Ass!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Choke those chicken necks!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Don't take no shit!
No!

We gotta do something bout these foreigners,
Taking the jobs from my old man.
Someday I'm gonna go to college,
And be a leader in my frat.
Then you'll see me on television,
Bombing countries that don't like our god.
Shoot anybody that don't speak english,
Lock'em all up in a giant prison.

Thank God We Got a Bully!
Leader of the free world!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Shoot'em all down!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
With a nuclear bomb!
Thank God We Got a Bully!
Blow'em all up!
A-ha ha ha-ha!

I wake up in a sweat, thinking about you
I’ll never forget what you said you’d do
If you found me by the bleachers after school
Man, you must think that you’re just too cool

We just gotta gang up
one on one there’s no way to stop you
but together we can take you down

How my body shakes thinking about you
Anticipation, I don’t know what I’d do
If you found me by the bleachers after school
Man, you must think that you’re just too cool

We just gotta gang up
one on one there’s no way to stop you
but together we can take you down

[Bridge]

You’re hard as nails, but we’re pretty tough too
You never thought that there’d be others as well
Now we’ve trapped you by the bleachers after school
Man, by yourself you’re not that cool

We just gotta gang up
one on one there’s no way to stop you
but together we can take you down

Pass me over
I’m too easy
Look right through me
Flesh and bone
No more use, I’m
Just too broken
Squeezed of blood, I’m
Just a stone

All my empty
All my lonely
All my hopeless, shaking rage
Desperation
Reach for something
Wish you violently away

I forgive you
It’s not easy
Burned in anger
Torn apart
It gets better
So they’re saying
Better lonely
Broken heart
I forgive you

Made excuses
Have you suffered
In this silence?
What made you?

It’s too quiet
You’re not human
No one fears me
Like I do

All my guilty
All my sorry
All my hating
All my shame
I can’t answer
I’m wide open
My defenses
Washed away

I forgive you
It’s not easy
Burned in anger
Torn apart
It gets better
So they’re saying
Better lonely
Broken heart
I forgive you

I see you
Walking down the hall
I know what to do
I will drop the ball

Knock the books
From out of your hands
Kneel on your arms
So you can not stand

Knock him down
Beat him up
Knock him down
Beat him up
Knock him down
Beat him up
Knock him down
Beat him up

Gonna punch you in the face
Gonna punch you in the head
Gonna punch you in the neck
Never gonna stop until I derail

Solo

I see you
crying on the floor
I know what to do
So I give you some more

My father beats me so I beat you
Last night he loosened my last good tooth
Coach says I'll make the starting squad
But when I do I'll never start

No!

I hate you because I hate myself
You can't do anything no one will help

They won't help me
They won't help me
