lyrics

The day seems so out of luck
you're inconsistent, or
in something out of reach
are you in or are you out?
Well don't waste your breath
Just leave me alone

screaming at the top of your lungs won't do a damn thing
take two steps back, on your feet
understand nothing
Are you in or are you out?
Don't waste your breath
Just leave me alone

(Chorus)
I guess it's true I do fear change
as time goes by I sit cross legged hands are tied
under that same tree and yes I'm still afraid to die
hanging from these puppet strings I pray the day I get cut down to size
I'll be small enough to walk through the doorway
my self intact with my back against the fence

Hanging from the edge looking over the city
it's been torn up
seven years later and I've still got nothing
you haven't changed much
don't waste your breath
Just leave me alone

Well tell me this Miss lipstick
why are we all alone?
Remembering all the ignorance back in school
it hasn't changed much
don't waste your breath
Just leave me alone.

(Chorus)
I guess it's true I do fear change
as time goes by I sit cross legged hands are tied
under that same tree and yes I'm still afraid to die
hanging from these puppet strings I pray the day I get cut down to size
I'll be small enough to walk through the door way
my self intact with my back against the fence
