Daniel Johnston - Pot Head lyrics

Man you look like old man's eyes When I saw you in that room And now you're on tour They booked you in the asylum You work so hard at being a buffoon And now you ain't got no incentive left You popped your own balloon You wanted to be somebody But you ain't nobody You ain't got no body You're just a head You're just a pothead I heard one day they said you got so high You ate up a chicken head and it was still alive I have some friends who swear you did so don't deny Some day you're gonna get so messed up You'll eat the head off your kid And won't you be sorry, pothead… You brag to all your friends About the fun you had last night I wonder if you realize you forgot to brush your teeth And then you'll come a-bummin' Asking for some money You even tried to roll the sacred pages And you burnt your lip That lip is has a trench in it Where that wild weed sits s**ing like a parasite Of any sense you might have left You say that you are happy And you like stormy weather Well I think that you're just dumb And you don't know any better You play your rock and roll guitar You say you're gonna be a big star But everyone in this neighborhood Knows just who you are No I ain't tryin' to be hard I don't mean to be cruel I'm just tryin' to say something that'll shock… You into going back… to school Or maybe at least reality In this year You wanted to be somebody But you ain't nobody You ain't got no body You're just a head
