I See People

Sung to "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story

I see people, dead dead people
They're people who don't know they've died
And these people, are scaring me to death inside!
La la la la la la la la la la!

It's alarming, not disarming
It's alarming how harming it feels
It's not easy, 'cause no but me believes they're real
La la la la la la la la la la!

See the drawers and the cabinets
Open automatically
When my house is cold then the ghosts are bold
They're out of control, coming after me!
La la la la la la la la la la-la la!

I've been labled as unstable
Even my mom is worried about me
I need someone to hear my secret privately

Have you met our classmate Cole Sear
The craziest kid on the block
You'll know him the minute you see him
He's the one who is in an advanced case of shock

He says goofey things, calls the teacher name (St-st-stuttering Stanley)
We call him a freak, he must be insane
"Stop looking at me" is all he will say
They should take one look and cart him away!

Keep away from him, he's so freaky
When he looks around, it's so creepy
Came to a party, had a good time
Got thrown in a room and went out of his mind!

It's not pretty in this city
Where's the brotherly love that I need?
Maybe Malcom will be someone who can rescue me
La la la la la la la la la la!

Medications, hospitilization
Won't have an effect upon me
Like the spirits, people just see what they want to see
La la la la la la la la la la-la la!

See the little girl under that bed there
She has a message for me
I can show her dad that her mom was bad
Even though it's sad, now we can be free

Things have shifted, now I'm gifted
At last there is a purpose for me
But I'd rather just have been a baseball prodigy!
