Song Meaning
Verse 1
All day long I felt like
Smashing my face in a clear glass window
But instead I went out
And smashed up a phone box round the corner
Verse 2
I never had a chance to choose my own parents
I'd never know why I should be stuck with mine
Mommy's always trying not to eat
And Daddy's always smelling like he's pickled in booze
Verse 3
I never had a chance to choose my own name
I'd never know why I should be stuck with mine
Mommy's always talkin' 'bout family pride
And Daddy's always hiding 'bout his week-end rides
Verse 4
All day long I felt like
Smashing my face in a clear glass window
But instead I went out
And smashed up a station wagon round the block
Verse 5
I looked at the mirror and told myself,
I'm glad I still don't look like them at least
Mommy's like a film star in a distorted mirror
Daddy's like a guy who lost his stomach in the war
Verse 6
I went to shake hands with the president in Miami
I went to a rock show to see Mick Jagger
And you'd never believe it, surprise to my life
They had paint on their faces just like Mommy's
Verse 7
Am I going crazy or is it just you Daddy?
Am I going nuts or is it just you Mommy?
Am I plain gone or is it the world?
Daddy I'd rather have you dead than crazy
Verse 8
Trying to talk to them is like eating TV dinner when you're angry
Trying to get their love is like watching ice cream ad when you're hungry.
They gave me a watch that's guaranteed not to break
But my Mommy and Daddy broke up last fall
Verse 9
Am I going crazy or is it just you Daddy?
Am I going nuts or is it just you Mommy?
Am I plain gone or is it the world?
Mommy I'd rather have you dead than crazy
Verse 10
All day
