LIVING IN EXILE

This song is for all the outcasts
outsider and outlaws out there tonight,
is going out to everybody whose ever been
locked up held down and kicked around.
going out to all the whitetrash out there,
all the wasted youth,
everybody thats felt like they never had a chance,
the world we live in is going straight to hell.
Fellows i know there's no where to turn...were all livin in exile.

I've been hanging on the corner,
starin' at the night sky,
and watchin' the cars drive by.
Their faces stare but they don't see me
as I think about the past and I wonder why.
A side of life they'll never see
has passed before my jaded eyes.
I'm on the outside lookin' in,
I hold the burnin' tears inside my heart.
I been runnin', I been runnin' with the hunted,
I been runnin' for my whole life. I'm in exile.
And I got nothin' but a hope inside,
in my heart where hope has died.
I been livin' in exile.
Tears and pain like a stinging rain,
have passed before my eyes. I'm in exile.
Forsaken! Forgotton! If you haven't been there,
then you'll never understand.
I've stolen, I've lied,
I've traded my pride 'cuz I never had a helping hand.
They'll steal your innocence and take away your soul.
I've stolen, I've lied,
there were time when there wasn't any place to go.
So let's go! I been runnin', I been runnin' with the hunted,
I been runnin' for my whole life. I'm in exile.
And I got nothin' but a hope inside,
in my heart where hope has died. I been livin' in exile.
Tears and pain like a stinging rain,
have passed before my eyes. I'm in exile.

How many tears have our mothers cried?
How many of my kind have died?
So I stand here to spit in your eyes,
tell you your society is nothing but lies.
They lock us up and they hold us down,
another wasted you, another dead end town.
I been waiting so long, now my hope is gone.

There's gotta be something more than this.
There's gotta be something that I missed.

I been runnin', I been runnin' with the hunted,
I been runnin' for my whole life. I'm in exile.
And I got nothin' but a hope inside,
in my heart where hope has died. I been livin' in exile.
Tears and pain like a stinging rain,
have passed before my eyes. I'm in exile.

How many tears have they torn from my eyes?
How many times will we be denied?
They lock us up and they hold us down,
just another wasted youth, another dead end town.
I been waiting for so long. I been waiting now my hope is...gone.
