Don’t try to tell me how the world’s got to be
Don’t try to sell me the wrong as right
Here we are; don’t we share the same view
So why are we so different in our minds
We’re going down; we’re going down all the way
You keep on yelling; maybe you’re right
But in the end, when I walk down my streets
It’s playing safe, or staying alive

With nothing left to talk about
How would it help you to get loud
With nothing left to care about
How would it help you to get loud

You made me walk through the world
Like a child through the night
Don’t tell me to be afraid to step out in to the light

You used to teach me all the words I should fear
You taught me to be afraid to try
I totally know it’s so easy to blame you
But I can’t help it; I know I’m right
The years go by, but I don’t feel anything
No use in singing the same old lines
But what I know is that there’s grown a part inside of me
That keeps me from feeling fine
