I'm turning my back on this life
For as long as I can
Someone make me star
'Cause I sure as hell can't be a man

I'm too fragile and clever you know
And this universe just leaves me cold
I'm just hanging around here
I'm longing for someone to hold

You always knew didn't you mother
You always knew as mothers always do
You always knew didn't you mother
I was a stranger in this world

This dumb education was never quite part
Of my plan
So you left me to ruin
But I'll always know who I am

I'm too fragile and clever you see
And your universe just leaves me cold
I'm just hanging around here
I'm longing for someone to hold

You always knew didn't you mother
You always knew as mothers always do
You always knew didn't you mother
I was a stranger in this world

Whoever told you that these were the days
Of our lives?
The sweet boys they crumble
And the wicked ones rise and survive
And they're running our lives
Yes they're running our lives

You always knew didn't you mother
You always knew as mothers always do
You always knew didn't you mother
I was a stranger in this world

On a clear day, I can see myself for miles
Oh mother, oh mother, mother
