Ain't anyone there?
Don't anyone care?
(Oh, I should shut my mouth
'fore I get labeled again.)
Seriously though,
it's inhumane!
Like I'm on trial for something I didn't do,
And somewhere 'long the line, I managed to hurt you.
But that's society's fault, not mine. Right?
I can sleep with a clear conscience tonight.
Right? Hello? Look, I don't wanna fight,
All I want is some insight.

Why is it like this?
All crazy and amiss.
(They're lookin' at me funny,
I wonder why . . .)
Why? What?
Just speakin' my mind.
Remember that thing? You haven't used it in a while,
It's as if every fine thought has been sent to exile.
But that's just you, not me. Right?
I'm outta your league, so out of sight.
Right? Huh? Could I be wrong?
Am I just as sad as the caged bird's song?

Wrong. Yeah, it can't be me.
It simply, utterly . . . can't be . . .

Well, the wrods come out before I can really process them . . . for the reader I guess it's all about identity. Who are you in this situation? Are you the speaker, do you truly understand the words? Or are you the one being spoken to? Or do you not get it at all? It's all about you . . .
