Go tell your child she’s got to be like a woman
Tell her everything she once knew has no meaning
They want to know what we are, not what we could be
I never thought I was special but I hear I used to be

Why do always shadow what we are
Why do I pick up the pieces you leave?
My hope is that I can just sleep through one night
What I say falls into the shadow of an empty mind

Yes I do have a problem with their lying filthy mouths
And I feel that I could have prevented their walking all over me
And i know I make them
And it’s just their way of saying we make the rules and if you don’t like it
Then don’t play

Get out my dusty boxing gloves
The bell has rung and I’m gonna take a chance with this war
I’ve got my case and I’m gonna take this jury by surprise
You act like you’re not listening and it’s all just fine
What a change I can see my shadow
I decide when I come and when I go

It’s easier to watch them be what they are
It’s easier to be a good liar when it comes down to you
You got a lot you didn’t tell me and a lot you didn’t do

Why do you always shadow what you are?
Why do I pick up the pieces you leave?
My hope is that I can just sleep through one night
What I say falls into the shadow of an empty mind
