about

Rat’s mom worries what will become of her little boy – and wonders what those strange noises are coming from his room.

lyrics

Mrs. Falestra: Oh, what future will this poor boy have?
He’s asleep with those headphones on, again

What kind of noises does he seek?
What if the voices start to speak?
What will we call him if he blows?
No one knows

It’s the sound of a thing in pain
It’s the sound of an aero plane
It’s the sound of a…

Rat: I’m just a simple son
I learned my chords, I had my fun
This music’s dead, I’m through with that
Now you can call me Rat

Mrs. Falestra: What kind of songs play in his head?
What are those tapes under his bed?
Is he a Mozart for today?
Who can say?

It’s the sound of a Marshall stack
It’s the sound of a heart attack
It’s the sound of no turning back

Rat: I’m just a simple son
I learned my chords, I had my fun
This hippie shit is dead and gone

I’m just a simple son, I’m just a simple son
I’m just a simple son

I learned my chords, I had my fun
This music’s dead, I’m through with that
I’ll clear the room and won’t look back
Now, you can call me Rat!
