You're Not In On the Joke - Cobra Starship

Don't take them faces
At their value in a cynical town
Can't you smell the stale air?
I had no skill but I had heart
So then I turned it around
So just remember

I'm no cynic
But sometimes I get bored
I'm no cynic
No, I got a heart of gold
Oh, oh

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-tongue in my cheek
If you seem them laughing
(If you see them laughing)
Don't follow in
'Cause they're the b_tt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
And you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke

I got my picture in the paper
And my parents are 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

They say I'm cold, cold, cold
Gabey, baby, you 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-tongue in my cheek
If you seem them laughing
(If you see them laughing)
Don't follow in
'Cause they're the b_tt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
And you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke

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

I only show you what I want you to see
I got my tongue, tongue in my cheek
If you seem them laughing
(If you see them laughing)
Don't follow in
'Cause they're the b_tt of my joke
I'll always be just who you want me to be
And keep my t-t-t-tongue in my cheek
A hopeless romantic
And you'll never see
'Cause you're not in on the joke
