(Concept: The lonely hero)

Look at me, an awful mess.
I try to breathe but I must confess.
They say that I'm seeing the world when I'm here at home.
I make a call to reach a friend
But you're never there so I pretend
that you're with me and having a laugh
But it just won't do. It isn't true.

Here alone with my thoughts
So I get stoned and shake it off.
But it squeezes the life from my bones
and I feel unknown.

They look at me and they don't try
And I feel as though I can't stay at all.
Just give me a chance to make you laugh
And I'll leave at once.
They always read, read me wrong.
Assuming that I, I am always gone.
But honestly friend all I want is to spend some time with you.

In my room with a record on,
It comforts me to hear Bazan.
He translates feelings to song
And I sense his pain,
It stays with me.
Do you know my words are true?
Can I sing my song for you?
Listen close cause I'm spilling my heart for the first time.

They look at me and they don't try
And I feel as though I can't stay at all.
Just give me a chance to make you laugh
And I'll leave at once.
They always read me wrong.
Assuming that I am always gone.
But honestly friend all I want is to spend some time with you.

I cannot say everything on my mind!
I cannot say everything!
So I swallow the pill you give me.

They look at me and they don't try
And I feel as though I can't stay at all.
Just give me a chance to make you laugh
And I'll leave at once.
They always read, read me wrong.
Assuming that I, I am always gone.
But honestly friend all I want is to spend some time with you.

I cannot say everything on my mind!
I cannot say everything!
So I swallow!
