why stay here with me in this land?
a big freak is what you think i am
i can tell you once, but i won't say it again
i did nothing wrong nor was it my intent

don't turn around
don't talk about
close your eyes when i fall down
don't point me out
don't keep your voice low
close your eyes when i go

please listen to my friends who know me now
or you will never ever really see
don't make up your mind and tear me down
what was it that i did to thee?

this is the bomb that you gave to me
these are the words of tragedy
you are the cloud that covers me
outside your realm, i long to be
