Sorry I couldn't be there I was tied to a rocking chair
I was beat down to a pulp rocking back and forth somewhere
If you knew, if you saw you'd have said it was the final straw
That my life was bound and tattered on a porch by the shore

But there is no, no, no, no
Easy way to tell myself
The things you know
And run, run, run, run, run
When they say they think they know exactly so

Chorus:
It's not right, it's not right
Am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's their numbers it's their numbers we don't stand a chance
So long as their around it's just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care

It's funny being funny,
Makes you feel like up and running
When your past lingers like rain clouds casting shadows below
I could live with so many burdens
I'll take all your hope and yearnings
But there's nowhere I won't take me for their petty little woes

I used to glow, glow, glow, glow
Once I had a love to show
A love they know
They're slow, slow so slow
So slow they never know where I go

Chorus:
It's not right, it's not right
Am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's their numbers it's their numbers we don't stand a chance
So long as their around it's just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care

I know that it's only something
I'm just working with what I've been given
It's not my fault, I'm happy
Don't call me crazy, I'm happy!

Chorus:
It's not right, it's not right
Am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's their numbers it's their numbers we don't stand a chance
So long as their around it's just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care
