I must refrain
And try to explain just
What I plan to do from here

I can’t relax
And I will react to
Anything that I see or fear

(Chorus: )
You can’t say that I
You musn’t say that I
You shouldn’t say that I
Don’t mean to do the things I plan
Am any less educated than
Your average urban modern man

I will wake up
And I won’t break up and
I’ll grow to a ripe old age

I’m not prepared, but
I’ll be pushed there and
Let loose in some larger cage

(chorus)

(Bridge: )
Am I already late?
Am I some pawn of fate?
Is my life second-rate to yours?
Is there some great return
After some lesson’s learned
After life’s filed for divorce?

You don’t know me, but
I know I’ll be in
The same space reserved for you.

No one told me and
No one should scold me, and
That’s just what I plan to do!

(Chorus)
