I know that you're lonely
I can see it written in your eyes
Behind your crooked smile
Lives a fear you can no longer hide
You've built an ivory tower
Locked the doors and threw away the keys
Hiding in the shadows
Thinking that the world's your enemy

The world's an ugly place when you're alone
But you don't have to face it on your own
You don't have to hide
Locked away inside
You're not alone
You're not alone

You tried to live among them
Pretending you are just another sheep
But they treat you like an alien
Sensing that you're different underneath
So you made your life a fortress
Built a wall around your broken heart
But now the walls are crumbling
The isolation's tearing you apart

The world's an ugly place when you're alone
But you don't have to face it on your own
You don't have to hide
Locked away inside
You're not alone
You're not alone

Locked in solitary
Unaware you've always held the key
You designed this prison
And no one else can ever set you free

The world's an ugly place when you're alone
But you don't have to face it on your own
You don't have to hide
Locked away inside
You're not alone

The world's an ugly place when you're alone
But you don't have to face it on your own
You don't have to hide
Just let me inside
You're not alone
You're not alone
