Could care a less what you think of me
What I express is what you want to see
How could I ever be real to a nation of slaves
Would you stare before the whole world loved me?
Or turn away say you hate make fun of me
Pay or play it all just feeds the game
Don't waste my time I roll over die
Might as well can't find one reason why
I got the truth won't you see it through my eyes so...

Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...
Tell me that I'm wrong
So I can sing you the song you love to hate
But fear is never gone
Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...

Mom and dad were fucked just like me
One did drugs the other drunk beatings
They say an apple don't fall far from the tree
Weren't enough schools to rule or teach me
Enough pills to calm my crazy
Prescribe my own and dose E doze to sleep
I'll never fit in one skin chameleon
Jim Morrison one in a million
I ain't ever gonna change just stay the same

Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...
Tell me that I'm wrong
So I can sing you the song love to hate
But fear is never gone
Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...

Caskets made of twenty dollar bills
Bleed our hearts in prison waiting still
Dying for the U.S. oil drilled
Til it spills over
Media prescription pills kill
Freedom wastes in toxic land fills
Youths tasted through plastic gills
World's almost over and
There is no pure salvation
There is no power here
This is the bleeding nation
Trust in the God you fear
I want to love everyone
I want to be the cure
Next time I won't be so dumb
Listen to what you hear

Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...
Tell me that I'm wrong
So I can sing you the song love to hate
But fear is never gone
Applaud me if you like
Yeah I know this whole world's right...

This is just who I am
No I won't pretend
So if you can't comprehend
Don't be a friend and if the smoke ever clears...
I'll hear you in the end
