Why do you stare
do you think that I care?
you've been mislead
by the thoughts in your head.
Your words waste and decay
nothing you say
reaches my ears anyway
you never spoke a word of truth.
Why do you think
I believe what you said
few of your words
ever enter my head.
I'm tired of liver for freaks?
with tongues in their cheeks
turning their eyes as they speak
they make me sick and tired.
Are you confused
to the point in your mind
though you're blind
can't you see you're wrong
won't you refuse
to be used
even though you may know
I can see you're wrong
please, please, please open their eyes
please, please, please don't give me lies.
all of the earth
witness my birth
cried at the sight of a man
and still I don't know who I am
I've seen paupers as kings
puppets on strings
dance for the children who stare
you must have seen them everywhere
I've tried to mend
the love that ended
long ago although we still pretend
our love is surely coming to an end
don't waste the time you've got to love again.
We tried to lie
but you and I
know better than to let each other lie
the thought of lying to you makes me cry
counting up the time that's passed us by.
I've sent this letter hoping it will reach your hand
and if it does I hope that you will understand.
That I must leave in a while
and though I smile
you know the smile is only there to hide
what I'm really feeling deep inside
just a face where I can hang my pride.
We'll talk of places that we went
and times that we have spent
together penniless and free.
You'll see the day another way
and they could put the sunshine
for a nighttime where you lay.
You're love began I don't know when
but if you do I know that
you'll be happy in the end.
