One frail man with his life in his hands,
Soils himself for a dime,
I managed it up, but that's all I could,
'cause I don't have the time,
Shielding yourself, and feeling my world,
Controls my mind,
What makes man, one day it's done,
What's next for all mankind,

I finally stared around the lies...
I can't feel anything...anything...anything...
And all these years, to see where I began,
(yeah, yeah, yeah,)
I didn't know... guess I'll never understand,

20 years young, and it didn't take long,
Still I was only a kid,
Racing rapid thought sin my head,
It took away the fear,
Woke up one night, just screaming in fright,
Afraid of what I'd hear,
Pushing treats, all broken and meak,
Telling me, "come near",

I finally stared around the lies...
I can't feel anything...anything...anything...
And all these years, to see where I began,
(yeah, yeah, yeah,)
I didn't know... guess I'll never understand,

One frail man with his life in his hands,
Soils himself for a dime,
I managed it up, but that's all I could,
'cause I don't have the time,
Shielding yourself, and feeling my world,
Controls my mind,
What makes man, one day it's done,
What's next for all mankind,

I finally stared around the lies...
I can't feel anything...anything...anything...
And all these years, to see where I began,
(yeah, yeah, yeah,)
I didn't know... guess I'll never understand,

    General Comment"i finally stared around the lies" isn't it spost to be "i blindly stare around a lot"???

    anyways, i always picture him (the singer) walking around some dirty over-populated city and seeing its worst residents, and kinda wondering where he fits in that picture, kinda disgusted at it all...

    fucking deep shit, i LOVE MF.
