The Lyrics

Inspired by the video, seriously, watch the music video and it all makes sense. . .this leaves one of the Batthias list. Check me out at
Buddy take a look at my bright face
You say it's so white
Yes the sun I will never grace
I prefer late at night
Got a burn that's healing
I take shelter
In a basement that's lined
With big freak gargoyles of silver

It is rather hard to see quite straight
When the T.V's so bright
Electrified I grin
See me smile lightly
Got some charm see my lips
pure white face am I human I may fall
Think I need to, I want to

Well can't stand, I feel a bit colder
Hope it heals when I'm a bit older
Not a vampire or prude
but I am pale dude

Ooh, I'm white dude
Have less color than stick glue
But, ooh, it hurts to go out
Ooh, Change my hue
Something to restore my use
But, ooh until then I'll pout

On the web I'm surfing
while I keep closed all my curtains
Getting lonely I'm the subject
of all jokes and more
Hard to look, and cannot see with light in my room
I've got black lights near my door
And I doubt that I can handle more

Coloration has not hit my space
Skin has poor reaction if I put makeup on my face
Step out most are gawking
Pointing-laughing, shouting slurs
Some are frightening except small dalmatians
who are jealous of my skin tones

I hope I don't get any lighter
Even Colgate is not brighter
You can't look right at me dude
Or you'll go blind too

Colorless true
Casper thought I was dead too
But, ooh, He said I'd stand out
Ooh, Don't laugh dude
I'd darken to look like you
But, ooh I'm too white and I shout

Oooooh yeah, oooh yeah

Anytime I'm out at a place
People squint their eyes
to some I'm divine upon my face
cause my white skin shines and
the brightness of me turns off street lights
In the blink of an eye
I glow like a light bulb on the front porch

Please don't laugh and point-cause I can't change
Last name may be bright
Ironic, and strange
I might move to Alaska
Where the snow and the ice
and the state where most humans have brighter hues
Yes I need to, I want to

Ooh, I'm bright dude
and yeah I am quite smart too
But, ooh, I want to go out
Ooh, Night-time rules
Though sometimes the stars hurt too
But, ooh I just want to shout

Can clouds please come out?

(Clouds please come out)
(Clouds please come out)

Ooh, I'm light-true
May'nnaise has more color too
But, ooh, I tie with white out
Ooh, please can you
adjust your T.V.'s bright hues
Cause, ooh your eyes may just burn out

Ooh, I'm white dude
So much so I may blind you
But, ooh, At least I stand out
(I always stand out)
Ooh, Guess its true
I will always shine bright too
(ooh can we find out)
But, Ooh I can dream when I pout

I originally thought this was about you because you're a very pale guy (probably even more so now that you're not living in Tampa) then I saw the video. He's a heck of a lot more pale than you are. Good tribute to both of you pale dudes.

Lots of funny lines...especially, the Casper and mayonnaise comparisons..

I can identify since I'm also sun-averse.

Thank you Matty, AFW, and Porfle:) Yeah I'm still pretty white Matty!

Hilarious as usual, B.A. Dave, and I can identify with the whiteness comments since I am a natural redhead with extremely light skin, and can't be out in the sun much without burning badly... some have even made vampire jokes because of it... but I am not quite the color of a gluestick. 5s.
