APED: "natural-born shut-in"

I am antisocial, but thank God I ain't pathological.

Windows shut and curtains down,
ain't coming out to go around
the boy's a natural-born shut-in.
Dishes piled up in the sink
bottles empty of their drink,
forgot to take the trash outside again,
yeah, the boy's a natural-born shut-in.

Hoarded papers, childhood toys,
don't go play with other boys,
the boy's a natural-born shut-in.
Clothes left lyin' on the floor
that he wore the week before
out of socks? he buys some more,
yeah, the boy's a natural-born shut-in.

Drinks a lot, ain't got no friends,
same each day until the end,
wakes up does it all again,
yeah, the boy's a natural-born shut-in.
