This is the part of your life they don't teach at school
It doesn't look cool
But if you're a kid like me, it's not hard to see how the world can be
Looking through a coward’s eyes
Under a disguise
So they'll think you're not out of your mind

They'll save your words
Just to put you straight back down, it's an evil town
Where thoughts are broken, screams are spoken
This town's my head, and I've been mislead
To think about overthinking what I’ve said
But I never said nothing
Nor I ever said something

Why'd I, why'd I have to go
Saying things for show
So my mouth hides who I am
Now it's time to see, we are all alone
Nowhere to call home
So I'll pack and run away
But sleep's great refuge for today

I'm anything but social, but my tongue remains brave
Since it's always finding words and phrases that I need to save
From saying, keep them hidden or the words might die
Because I'm just another human trying harder not to lie
Everybody’s tripping and slipping around the earth
While we're cashing in our money just to look at what we're worth
But we're not worth nothing
No, everybody’s worth a little more

Why'd I, why'd I have to go
Saying things for show
So my mouth hides who I am
Now it's time to see, we are all alone
Nowhere to call home
So I'll pack and run away
But sleep's great refuge for today

I'll watch the world by day
In a cowards hideaway
But every night I sit in fright, too scared to run away
I'll shout what I conceal
These dreams will help me heal
Until my screams invade my dreams
Nightmares aren't what they seem

I've been climbing up a tree to count all the different coloured leaves left out
Its just another way of saying it's okay
Our mouths are shut but we've got things to say

Why
Why’d I have to go?
Saying things for show
So my mouth hides who I am

Why'd I, why'd I have to go
Saying things for show
So my mouth hides who I am
Now it's time to see, we are all alone
Nowhere to call home
So I'll pack and run away
But sleep's great refuge for today
