i live a sheltered life
i live a strange life
like everything is perfectly arranged for me
i just survive here
i never thrive here
i’m in a culture of mediocrity

i live a sterile life
i live a safe life
so i will never feel pain or suffering
i never cry here
i never try here
i’ll never reach my full capacity

i want the real thing
i want the unprotected
i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences i want the feeling that i am still alive

what would your mommy say what would your daddy say
if they knew we’ve been playing all night
long here why don’t you take it off
why don’t you tear it off why don’t you show me
something i’ve never seen before

i want the real thing
i want the unprotected
i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences
i want the feeling that i am still alive

give me the suffering
give me the bleeding
i’ll take the pain and turn it in to ecstasy
i have to face the fear that i may die here
die having never really lived for anything
i want the real thing
i want The Unprotected
i want the feeling that i am still alive

i want the real thing
i want the consequences
i want the feeling that i am still alive
