lyrics

Ever since the age of three
I felt the whole world watching me
Every mirror was two way glass
Behind which they all sit and laugh
Until the day that I revealed the conspiracy
The day they'd say "don't complain, you were better off this way"

But you don't understand
How it feels from where we stand
So please don't pretend you do
And you'll never realize
What it looks like through our eyes
So please don't pretend you can
Understand

Then one day in search of help
I accidentally found them out
There they were at the controls
Watching my life on a video
And not a person there saw fit to take a note
Instead they say "don't complain, you were better off this way"

But you don't understand
How it feels from where we stand
So please don't pretend you do
And you'll never realize
What it looks like through our eyes
So please don't pretend you can
Understand

Now there's pictures of my face
Plastered all around this place
Captioned "have you seen this man?"
"The one who dares to take a stand"
"All of you should try and catch him if you can"
Instead we say "don't complain, we're all better off this way"

But you don't understand
How it feels from where we stand
So please don't pretend you do
And you'll never realize
What it looks like through our eyes
So please don't pretend you can
Understand

You never will
