Original Artist: Ben Folds

If you've ever been brainwashed then you know all about (yeah)
How it feels to messed with till your insides fall out (yeah)

'Cause when you're being fucked with to no end
Suddenly the walls are starting to
Close in, close in, close in

Because you're brainwashed (yeah)
You are brainwashed
Because you're brainwashed (yeah)
If I could see behind those eyes
Why can't you pick on someone else your own size? (yeah)

I never was one for being mean to other people (No)
Like when I was a boy and went to church with the big steeple (yeah)

But you have gone to far over the line
I wish your mind had a button
Rewind, rewind, rewind!

Because you're brainwashed (yeah)
You are; you know it's true
Because you're brainwashed (yeah)
Did you think that I would see through all those lies?
'Cause you're just offering a batch of
Shit pies

I gotta say it made my day to be best friends with you
What happened to the person that I once knew?
You know it's true

I make a motion that we sit down and talk this whole thing out (yeah)
Or are you too much of a child; still want to be a little Boy Scout?

"When friends like you who need some friends" someone once said
I'd rather put a bullet into my
Big head, big head, big head

Brainwashed (yeah)
You know it's true (yeah)
Because you're brainwashed (yeah)
Believe me, yeah, can't you see?
Life has many possibilities
(Brainwashed, yeah, brainwashed)
