Oh, I wish sometimes that I could see beyond the veil
Into the outskirts of the cities I'd never dare declare my home
Oh, I wish sometimes I could be free of the beast that resides within me
I only want somewhere to call my own

They say different must be evil, they're so scared of the unknown
And the sheets of glass I break shatter as I moan
Into the empty corners of the chairs that they vacate
And I wish to God I knew their real state
And I wish to God I knew their real state

Because outside can work, while inside dies
And I hate myself for not being more surprised
I often covet blessings they throw away
I'd love to be naive again, I'd love to be naive again

Oh, I wish sometimes that we could truly be our own
There once was a time I thought grass only grew from seeds
Oh, I wish sometimes I could break your boundaries
And those of the bloodthirsty people that are less human than weed

They say different must be evil, they're so scared of the unknown
That they can't bear to trace the patterns that let themselves be woven
Into the empty corners of the chairs that they vacate
And I wish to God I knew their real state
And I wish to God I knew their real state

Because outside can work, while inside dies
And I hate myself for not being more surprised
I often covet blessings they throw away
I'd love to be naive again, I'd love to be naive again

The hatred is so verbal but the revenge is not
The vengeance that so stuns me belies all the things they got one day
Oh, they believe angels fall from the sky
To tidy up the bloody mistakes that they never let lie
Paranoia grips us all, there must be no escape
Maybe the bigoted thinking might just be the only way
I wish I could more describe but I can't fill a page
Without the besotted monsters coming to take me away

Because outside can work, while inside dies
And I hate myself for not being more surprised
I often covet blessings they throw away
I'd love to be naive again, I'd love to be naive again

I'd love to be naive again, I'd love to be naive
I'd love to be naive, I'd love to be naive again.
