The underachievers

Oh they have trouble walking. There is a bone missing that they cannot name.
You can see them browse the aisles of discount supermarkets in vain.
Oh they have no trouble talking. They can bullshit with the best of them on mobile phones,
to a sister in the suburbs with children coming out of her ears.

And when they arrive home to greet their wives and families so pleased to see 'em,
you can observe a subtle metamorphosis as they cease to be 'em
and as the dinner conversation twists and turns around the houses,
someone will ask you what you did today. Who me?
Oh I betrayed everything I have ever known to be true.

They hang around bus stops. It starts off jokey then ends up in fisticuffs.
And you might wonder why so aggressive
as you sit there reading your novel looking all passive.
Oh the underachievers have no direction. They live in limbo between sky and ground.
They only know which way they're facing by kicking you when you're down.

And when they arrive home to greet their wives and families so pleased to see 'em,
you can observe a subtle metamorphosis as they cease to be 'em
and as the dinner conversation twists and turns around the houses,
someone will ask you what you did today. Who me?
Oh I betrayed everything I have ever known to be true.

Oh here they come, here they come...
