Dumb it Down

From "Black Bean"

Freud said it but I said it too
So we've got to give the credit
Where the credit is due
Is it nature Nurture
It's all the same
Either way your parents
Are the ones to blame
We've got the school psychologist
On the phone,
Saying someone doesn't get enough
Attention at home
Is it nature Nurture
It's all the same
Either way your parents are the ones to blame

Now I'm lying in the mud
And the mud starts to boil
I sweat hot wax and I spit hot oil
I've got enough rage to melt the whole block
I'm the midnight train on the Doomsday Clock
And I'm
Pulling up to the station
A one-way ticket to alienation
Is it nature Nurture
It's all the same
Either way your parents are the ones to blame

Why do I try
You think the world is
So cut and dry
But I will not
I will not
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
Any further I won't
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
I can't scream without making a sound
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
Any further I won't
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
I can't scream without making a sound

T minus
What's the T minus
'Til I throw down with America's finest
Linus and Lucy, Mozart, Debussy
Give me something more juicy
I'm just another product of industrial shock
I keep my hands on the red telephone
And my fans in a headlock
It's a deadlock, a standard precaution
'Cause every dirty mind needs a good brainwashin'

Get me a bill for the bouncer
A tattoo gun and a vocational counselor
It's a round world
And I'm square like a Velamint
A breakdown of emotional development
I'll never be squat
And that's a good thing
So show the world what you've got
Between your index and ring
Is it nature Nurture
It's all the same
Either way your parents are the ones to blame

Why do I try
You think the world is
So cut and dry
But I will not
I will not
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
Any further I won't
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
I can't scream without making a sound
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
Any further I won't
Dumb it down
Dumb it down, down
I can't scream without making a sound.
