Tim Booth – Discover lyrics

So you gave me a home
And you gave me a name
And you told me, behave like the others
Then you sent me to school
Which was all about rules
And I learnt to pretend
And so I faked my way through school
And now I faked my way to you
In every face I look for signs of truth
And when you cry I take your hand
And when you rage I understand
Look in my eyes
I'm not like all the others
Its time for you to discover
Who I am becoming
I may look like a man
And talk like a man
Buti feel like a man undercover
I don't feel real, I feel like a fake
In a moment I'll break
And so I'm prisoner to this guise
I'm in for life, but what's my crime?
I'm searching through my race to find
Some long lost tribe long lost in time
You fear that death will be th end
I fear that well come back again
I killed you once so lets pretend
This time round well be good friends
So I've been abuser and I've been abused
I've been the Nazi and I've been the Jew
I was the user and now I am used
To recover those who wish to discover
Who I am becoming.
