VÂN SCOTT - Poster Boy



I am not a mascot for anyone
Never asked to be one
Missin' out on all the fun
People got me pegged and pigeonholed
Tryin' to make me fit the mold
Doin' everything I'm told

I'm not good at doin' everything I'm told

I'm not a poster boy
Whether you like it or not
You can't pin me on the wall
Not a poster boy
There's no denyin' my feet will leave this pedestal

Oh, I stand for somethin'
I can't stand for nothin'

Never chose to have a halo on my head
I'd rather wear my hat instead
Keep my face from turnin' red
But now you know, if you didn't already guess
Didn't mean to false impress
My life is still a total mess

They want a pretty face
For everyone to see, oh
That's exactly how they'll make a monster out of me
I'm not a poster boy
Whether you like it or not
You can't pin me on the wall
Not a poster boy
There's no denyin' my feet will leave this pedestal

Oh, I stand for somethin'
I can't stand for nothin'
I'm just not a poster boy

They want a pretty face
For everyone to see, oh
That's exactly how they'll make a monster out of me

I'm not a poster boy
Whether you like it or not
You can't pin me on the wall
Not a poster boy
There's no denyin' my feet will leave this pedestal

Oh, I stand for somethin'
I can't stand for nothin'
Oh, I stand for somethin'
I can't stand for nothin'
