Song Description

IT'S ABOUT MISTAKEN IDENTITIES. PEOPLE ASSUMING YOU'RE SOMETHING YOU'RE NOT. PEOPLE WHO ARE HIGH ON DRUGS & ALCOHOL ASSUME YOU ARE (& THEY'RE NOT).

Story Behind the Song

I WAS VISITING A GOOD FRIEND IN BERKELEY, CA, FOR THE WEEK-END. WE CAME ACROSS A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ASSUMED I WAS THINGS OR PEOPLE I WASN'T, SUCH AS A JUNKY, A BODY GUARD (TO A FRIEND WHO'S MUCH BIGGER THAN ME, GO FIGURE), STRAIGHT, AND DRUNK. WELL, IT MAD

Lyrics

I WAS UP IN BERKELEY
VISITIN' A FRIEND
THE MINUTE THEY SAW ME
IT WAS THE END
ONE THOUGHT I WAS A FLUNKY
THE OTHER THOUGHT I SCORED
SHE THOUGHT I WAS A JUNKY
AND ASKED ME: "ARE YOU STONED?"

MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T AFFECTING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
NO ONE DEFENDING
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T OFFENDING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME
IF YOU'RE IN TOUCH WITH THE OTHER ME
THE NON-EXISTENT ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY

WE LEFT ONE BAR BEHIND US
AND CAME TO ANOTHER ONE
I WAS DRINKING IN A CORNER
WHEN SOMEONE ASKED ME:
"DO YOU CARRY A GUN?"
WE WENT TO A MEAT MARKET
TWO FRIENDS AND I
THEY PICKED UP TWO CHICKS
"IS HE A DRUGGIE?" I HEARD ONE CRY

MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T AFFECTING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
NO ONE DEFENDING
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T OFFENDING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME
IF YOU'RE IN TOUCH WITH THE OTHER ME
THE NON-EXISTENT ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY

I WENT TO THE MEN'S ROOM
AMUSED BY THE ACCUSATION
THEY GAVE ME A BROOM
BUT I COULDN'T SWEEP CLEAN MY SITUATION
A GIRL WAS WAITIN' OUTSIDE
"DANCE IF YOU WILL" - I TRIED
TOLD HER I WAS SOBER
SHE THOUGHT I LIED

MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T AFFECTING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
NO ONE DEFENDING
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T OFFENDING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME
IF YOU'RE IN TOUCH WITH THE OTHER ME
THE NON-EXISTENT ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY

A MAN SELLIN' WEED
OFFERED ME A JOINT
I SHOOK MY HEAD
AND HE SAID:
"YOU'RE RIGHT, WHAT'S THE POINT?"
THE GIRL CAME BACK AGAIN
"YOUR BEER IS WARM," SHE SAID
I SMILED, SHE WEPT
HER NOSE WAS (POWDER) WHITE & BLOOD RED

MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T AFFECTING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
NO ONE DEFENDING
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
ISN'T OFFENDING ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME
IF YOU'RE IN TOUCH WITH THE OTHER ME
THE NON-EXISTENT ME
MISTAKEN IDENTITY

REMEMBER ME
DRESSED LIKE A HIPPIE
MY BEST FRIEND WAS A STONER
BUT I'M NOT WHAT YOU THINK YOU SEE
'CAUSE I'M THE OWNER OF A MISTAKEN IDENTITY
MISTAKEN! YOU'RE MISTAKEN ABOUT MY IDENTITY
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
YOU KEEP ACCUSING ME OF THIS MISTAKEN IDENTITY...
