Sean Kammer’s incomparable masterpiece tugs playfully at our hearts and senses of humor. Rich guitar textures and bouncing bass line make for a tremendous sound. “He hears music of a different kind” and such excellent lyrics tell a hilarious tale of a perpetually out-of-place student.

-Ryan LaBo, HỲP magazine (December 2000)


the boy looks up with an evil glare.
all the other kids are beginning to stare.
even though they don't even care,
everybody worries about…the weird kid in the corner.

everybody goes out on the town.
he says a lot but makes no sound.
they wonder why he hangs around.
they say he's strange, he's…the weird kid in the corner.

every class has a weird kid in the corner.
but why does it have to be me?
why does it have to be me?

the boy tries hard to capture her heart.
she laughs aloud, rips him apart.
he wonders why he was given this part.
he wonders why he's…the weird kid in the corner.

everybody thinks that he's out of his mind.
whenever they look at him, they don't know what they'll find.
he hears music of a different kind.
everybody worries about…the weird kid in the corner.

at the beginning of every new class,
i sit in the front like an out of place ass.
eventually though, undoubtedly so,
i end up being…the weird kid in the corner.
