Planet

forgive me, sir, forgive me, m'am
this isn't who i really am
you would see my kindness, my coolness, my wisdom
under better conditions

cuz there's something in the water here
that makes me desperate, makes me selfish
something about the atmosphere
that makes me lose it, i just can't help it
please accept my apologies

i'm sorry
this planet
brings out the worst in me

can't stand it
this planet
brings out the worst in me

the toxic sun, the stubborn wind
it's dangerous, this environment
and don't get me started on all of the creatures
and all of their frightening features

every new day i spend here
i get crueller, i get colder
something about the outlook here
makes me weak as i get older
so i'm saying, sincerely

i'm sorry
this planet
brings out the worst in me

goddamnit
this planet
brings out the worst in me

guilty, guilty, i confess
i don't know which would bring out the best
and as to this one at times it is an alright place to be
and they still say it will someday decide to set me free

but goddamnit
this planet
brings out the worst in me

can't stand it
this planet
brings out the worst in me

i gotta hand it
to this planet
it brings out the worst in me

and now i'm stranded
on this planet
which brings out the worst in me
