lyrics

I’ve got this strange feeling;
At times I fear for the future
And all these best laid plans.
I know I'll stitch my life up;
I keep searching for the sutures.
I’m a boy trapped in a man.

I’m a boy trapped in a man.

Oh, life is more than a paycheck,
and the nuclear family.
The Cookie Cutter home,
And all the shit you own;

Still inside you feel alone.

My mother is a mockery
Of everything she used to be,
My father never says a word.
They’ve forsaken their family
For copious commodities,
Yet love they can’t afford.

Yet love they can’t afford.

Oh, life is more than a paycheck,
and the nuclear family.
The Cookie Cutter home,
And all the shit you own;

Still inside you feel alone.

Respect my personality,
and my individuality,
This separate sentient soul.
For, we all need sensitivity,
And love unconditionally,
And Compassion to be whole,
And Compassion to be whole.

Oh, life is more than a paycheck,
and the nuclear family.
The Cookie Cutter home,
And all the shit you own;

Still inside you feel alone.
