lyrics

i wanna be a side character in somebody else's life.
i wanna be out the door before the protagonist turns off the lights.
make jokes on the side while he kisses the girl,
never be expected to contribute to the world
i wanna be a side character in somebody else's life.

i wanna be the comic relief of a main storyline.
never express any appropriate emotions at any given time.
start innocent relationships that never seem to end
with lots of perfect humans you'll never see again.
i wanna be the comic relief of a main storyline.

i don't want the hassles of saving the day
or falling in love with the girl.
i wanna make no more than 40K annually
and have a voice that's seldom heard.
i wanna dress modestly and act positively
and be as average as average can be.
cause it's better than trying to be a better me.

i wanna be a running gag character that everybody likes.
receded to the background with the exception of saying my line.
to the critical reception of a chorus of guffaws,
the rolling of eyes and the laughing-track pause.
i wanna be a running gag character that everybody likes.

i wanna be incredibly surrounded and incredibly alone.
be playfully laughed at when out of my suburban home.
be aimless and gifted, neurotic and calm,
morally ambivalent -- neither right or wrong.
i wanna be incredibly surrounded and incredibly alone.
