Song and lyrics
Tell me I'm OK, Patrick! Tell me please, that's all you have to do. Just one little OK and you'll be on your way! Patrick, I really need that from you.
Tell me I'm OK, Patrick... No pressure but I seriously need to know! I realize your occupation is not gentle validation but just this once, Patrick, give it a go!
You represent the outside world
'cause you don't know me. Your perception of me is completely pure... You don't have an agenda... That's why I need you to lend a hand, Patrick'
'cause I think I'm fine, Patrick but I'm only like 43% sure!
Tell me I'm OK, Patrick Or even something in the ball park would be nice. You can phrase it how you want, you can make it nonchalant... Forget the 'O' even just 'K' would suffice!
Seriously Patrick, was I sick
the day in school they taught
you how to be a normal person?
It just feels like there's something
fundamental I'm missing out on.
Like, is there an instruction manual?
You get what I'm saying Patrick?
It just-it just feels like everyone
is in this cabal of normal people and
they're all laughing at me like I'm
the jester in my own Truman Show.
Patrick, tell me what the secret is.
Just tell me what the secret is.
Is there a manual?
Do you have a manual?
I know you have a manual Patrick!
I know it's in your truck Patrick!!
I'm sorry that I yelled, Patrick. But I need just a little more from you today. So Patrick hear my plea... make one last delivery... Say the word, Patrick... Tell me I'm OK... Am I OK?
