Turn the ugly light off God
Wanna feel the night
Everyday it shines down on me
Don't you think that I see
Don't you think that I see
What it's all about
Hard to look the other way
While the world passes me by
And everyone is trying to bum me out
It's a pretty big world God
And I am awful small
Everyday they rain down on me
Flower in a hail storm
Flower in a hail storm
Living for the drought
I can throw it back again
But then I play their game
Everyone is trying to bum me out
When I came into this world they slapped me
And everyday since then I'm slapped again
Tomorrow's kid, and unsightly coward,
You see I know I'm gonna win
Turn the ugly light off God
Don't wanna see my face
Every day it will betray me
Don't you think that I know
Don't you think that I know
What they're talking about
If they step on me tonight
They're gonna pay someday
Everyone is trying to bum me out
