Children in the playground, laughing and dancing in the street
all the colors of the rainbow, wrapped in childlike harmony
me, i'm not laughing - I see things only as they were
when i first needed you - yeah, when i first needed you

Cars passing by - representing my life
i ain't old, but i ain't young enough to cry like a baby
and i'm so scared, but i won't tell you for fear you'll hate me more
tough on the outside, tough on the outside - yeah, tough all over


Clouds go rollin by as i lay floatin in a stream of semi-consciousness
i'll follow it till the end or at least till i drown in my seperate reality
sorry there's only room for me

I used to have an angel - she took care of everything
yeah, so sometimes we cried - maybe more then most but so what
we shared everything - even some things we shouldn't have shared
like my seperate reality - now there's only room for me


i walk among the criminals and i pray among the saints
and somewhere in between i try to scrape off this war paint
it's cold in here in the corner of my soul - so dark and lonely
oh but i ain't never gonna let go


children in the playground - laughing and dancing in the street
all the colors of the rainbow - wrapped in childlike harmony
me, i'm not laughing or dancing - i see things only as they were
when i first needed you - yeah, when i first needed you


I used to have everything - now you won't even talk to me but that's alright
cause i've got a new friend now and her name is tattoed across my chest
and she won't let me down - cause i ain't never never gonna let her in
tough on the outside, tough on the outside - and it's surely tough in my
seperate reality - sorry there's only room for me
my seperate reality - sorry there's only room for me
sorry there's only room for me

    General Commenti think it's about somone who has gotten hurt too many times before and now lives in his own seperate reality.

    General CommentIf you need an explanation for this song, you just don't understand it. You probably will eventually.
