Coming out of my shell again
No one's there let's pretend to
See a girl and a boy standing next to me
And at this party I'll pretend
For a moment I just might have friends
The chimes of them dancing to break free
I've got them chained up loose so I can fit in
I said be silent no one can hear you
You feel like I did when no one comes near you
Cause they think that you're weird and you're stained
Like a carpet, the carpet your mom ruined making you pay

What did I do to deserve this
I forget that it's all part of my imagination
I could actually pick and choose my loose ends
And tie a knot, but all I do is
Run and hide, it'll get ya boy
Run and hide, I was born unaware that
My whole life would be a war, so I battle myself until I
Run and hide, it'll get ya boy

Stupid is as stupid does
More like an offspring of stupid is and always will be mad at luck
But I just don't have it in my blood, blood runs deep
When you're growing up with blood dripping from your ugly mug
Cause Papa don't like you like Mama does, so give it up
For the guardian angel dust, sniff it up
Rub a little dirt in it boy and bare with me, just take a lead pipe into my kidney

It's such a problem when people come near you
It seems ironic that most people fear you
What a shame that you feel so insane, but the truth of the matter's
Your shadow is cold and afraid

Did I fail to mention, it's all part of my imagination
I could actually pick and choose my loose ends
And tie a knot, but all I do is
Run and hide, it'll get ya boy
Run and hide, all I need is a friend
My whole life has been a war, so I battle myself until I
Run and hide

One after one they'll all spin around
And one after one they'll all fall down from love
Nobody ever gave 'em enough

One after one they'll all come around
And one after one they'll all fall down from love
Somebody's gonna give you enough
Somebody better give you enough

    General CommentIf I'm not mistaken, this is actually based off of the character Tate Langdon from Season 1 of American Horror Story. :)

    My InterpretationI think it's about a boy who always strived for his fathers attention and wanted to fit in, but he gave up on it and isolated himself from society. He's at parties without friends and everyone thinks of him as a cold dude with no respect from anyone. Nonetheless he is introverted and shy, which makes him sick. He knows that he could have friends and act like a "normal" human, but his inner fight with himself is a battle he cannot win.
