who says my time is up? who says my light is out? what do they hang around? why do i have to shout?
my simple days, they're slipping away and i'm stuck in here, trying to get away from all the eyes that are looking at me and they're speaking in tongues and i don't know what they mean i don't know what they mean
why can't i just belong? what did i do wrong? your words cut me like a knife give me one so i can make it right
and i'm wondering who said these things about you and me, and won't you tell me please? how can i believe when all they want to believe are the lies that won't let me be free?
