I'm going for a walk,
Not the after dinner kind,
I'm gonna use my hands
And I'm gonna use my mind.

And who the hell are you to tell me what to do?
You can't even tie your own haggard shoes,
Your closet is a mess, and your backyard's falling down,
And I have no grand ideas or intentions of sticking around.

I'm gonna build a world,
Independent and exempt,
All alone I'll be an empire,
With no mortgage and no rent.

And I don't need to live in your stinking zoo,
You can't even feed the animals donated to you.
Your storage sheds are ramshackled, flies decorate the walls,
And you expect me to die here in this shit-filled tiny stall?

And I know you're watching everything I do,
Call me threat to your children, call me socially unglued,
Call me master of insanity, unable to relate,
Call me lazy, bane, and filthy,
Call me monstrous reprobate.

I'm going for a walk
And there's nothing you can do,
'cuz I don't have to live like you
So I'm going for a walk.
