Do you know who I am
Did you follow the change
Am I part of your plan to stay the same
I'm not that man

I've worn out my shoes
On sacred ground
My point of view is not faced down
Like I see you

Viva la strange, take a bite of Eden's apple
Against the grain and away from the madness, madness

I don't wanna burn the life for my candle
Waiting around for a better day
I'll take a chance on fate's middle finger
And be someone I've never been

Don't wanna be another pretender
Not gonna smile, to save my own face
I wanna leave the thieves in the temple
Somewhere out of this place
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way, this time

Blow away the stone
And slip through the cracks
Shake all the bones off my back
My heart is my own

Viva la strange, take a bite of Eden's apple
Beyond the frame and out of the pretty picture, picture

Don't wanna burn the life for my candle
Waiting around for a better day
I'll take a chance on fate's middle finger
And be someone I've never been

Don't wanna be another pretender
Not gonna smile, to save my face
I wanna leave the thieves in the temple
And go somewhere out of this place
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way, this time

Don't wanna burn the life for my candle
Waiting around for a better day
I'll take a chance on fate's middle finger
And be someone I've never been

I don't wanna be another pretender
Not gonna smile, to save my own face
I wanna leave the thieves in the temple
And go somewhere out of this place
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way
I won't get in my way
