We grew up fast
And no one seemed to notice
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone
Mom and Dad
Were never what we wanted
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone
We grew up alone

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
You never act like that
With no one else

We grew up last
When lies were just a fact of life
We grew up mad
'Cause we never had a home
We faced the past
And then forgave the revolution
We grew up smashed
And we grew up alone
We grew up alone

Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down
Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down
No, I just can't lie down
I just can't lie down

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't act like I'm something else
Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Yeah, you know where I am
So don't act like I'm somewhere else
You never talk like that to no one else
You never scream like that
For no one else
You never suck like that
For no one else
Oh!
