You've got a voice, why don't you scream with all you've got
Why don't you sing if they can't hear you through your words?
If you're the only human in this zoo, how'd they get ahold of you
If all you've gotta do it raise your fists and sing it out

Scream away
This is just today
And if you can't get off the floor then you're not worth it anyway
You gotta keep running till they find you
Keep searching till they blind you
Cos you're the only thing tomorrow's gone without
Up till now

They took away your family but they can't have your pride
Why would you give up your freedom for a voice that you can't hear?
If better living's what they're saying, how come no one's staying
To watch the fireworks when all the blame is put on you, just sing it out

Scream away
This is just today
And if you can't get off the floor then you're not worth it anyway
You gotta keep running till they find you
Keep searching till they blind you
Cos you're the only thing tomorrow's gone without
Up till now

The future's under construction but it's never supervised
So what the hell is keeping you from sneaking out to vandalize?
And I wonder, if our shackles are held in place by dust and dreams
Why can't we break out if we would all just STAND AND SCREAM!!!

Scream away
This is just today
And if you can't get off the floor then you're not worth it anyway
You gotta keep running till they find you
Keep searching till they blind you
Cos you're the only thing tomorrow's gone without
Up till now
