    Lyrics

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?
    is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
    I was brain-dead, locked out, numb,
    not up to speed
    I thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dream
    Tunnel vision from the outsider's screen
    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh
    You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh

    I'd studied your cartoons, radio,
    music, TV, movies, magazines
    Richard said,
    "Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy"
    A smile like the cartoon,
    tooth for a tooth
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth
    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

    "What's the frequency, Kenneth?"
    is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
    Butterfly decal, rear-view mirror,
    dogging the scene
    You smile like the cartoon,
    tooth for a tooth
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth
    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

    You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand
    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand
    I never understood,
    don't fuck with me, uh-huh
