I'd better be careful with what I say
One wrong word & all will change
Dialing a number in a darkened room
My heart is pounding, 'cause you might be coming soon
What makes you think you know what's good for me
There's so much goin' on that you can't see
Don't think you will ever make me like you
Whatever you do, I will undo "They're not like us!"
Who I'm with, where I go, and what I do
From now on, it's not up to you
You might push a few of us out of reach
But we're never gonna practice what you preach
All I know is this don't feel right to me
And I'm never gonna be what you want me to be
"They're not like us!"
"It's not like you've never done anything for me"
"Believe me, you've done more than enough"
"And you've given me plenty"
You gave me sight, you made me close my eyes
You gave me the truth, you taught me how to lie
You gave me this air that I can't breathe
You gave me a future I'm not sure I wanna see
You gave me hope, you made me insecure
You made me think that you had the only cure
You gave me horizons I'll never see
You gave me scars I'm sure that will never heal
You gave me faith, you made me doubt myself
You gave me the rope, you let me hang myself
You gave me something to be afraid of
You made me what I am today!
You gave the key, you made me lock the door
You gave me pain, you made me beg for more
You gave me this air that I can't breathe
You gave me a future I'm not sure I wanna see
You gave me strength, you made me feel so weak
You gave me the truth, you made me disbelieve
You gave me something to be afraid of
You made what I am today!
