Dinosaur Jr. – The Leper lyrics

Embarrassed to be alive
Sit with my life, open wide
Your stare is forcing my face open
A leper crumbling, never joking
Who should I believe

Safest to wallow in my own esteem
Afraid, stick my neck out
Knowing the day has drawn

I'm a leper
Scared beyond this feeling
I dare to escape

A leper
Doomed to this
My life is chosen to rape

Embarrassed to be alive
Sit with my life open wide
Your stare is forcing my face open
A leper crumbling never joking
I'm a leper
Scared beyond this feeling
I dare to escape

A leper
Doomed to this
My life is chosen to rape

[listen to this solo!]

I'm a leper
Leper
Leper
