Catharsis kicks in
She’s okay with being ordinary
Her straight edge friend carves
‘There’s nothing safe about safety pins’ into her arm
She’s a little overweight
But she hates when boys are nice to her
For just that reason
The large X
Reminds her
She’s supposed to be abstinent
She’s screaming:

I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not the opiate of the masses
You’ve missed the point completely
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me

Infidelity
And arrogance
Are a single liability
As she’s signaled by the sinking feeling
This Minor Threatening policy
Which imposes stiff upper lips
Makes sure her mouth keeps bleeding
The large X
Reminds her
She’s supposed to be abstinent
She’s screaming:

I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not the opiate of the masses
You’ve missed the point completely
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me

One
Two
One
Two
Three
She sees
Boys kissing girls
Girls kissing up
And going down
On the contents of medicine cabinets
She’s had it
With these debutants
Dependent on
Cheerled debauchery

Nicotine is proof she hates her parents
She lights up just to let them down
Nicotine is proof she hates those friendships
That prohibit promiscuity
Even at the prom

I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not the opiate of the masses
You’ve missed the point completely
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me
I’m not the opiate of the masses
You’ve missed the point completely
I’m not a target market
So take your aim off of me

Take it off
