I GUESS I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE, YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A FIGHT TONIGHT
HOW CAN I EXPLAIN MY SITUATION, CONVEY ALL THE FRUSTRATION
WHEN CONFUSION AND CONTRADICTIONS ALL I FIND

I GOTTA KNOW, IF I MAY BE SO BOLD
ARE THERE THINGS YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW?
AND I CAN'T STAND IT WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME THAT WAY
IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR A WORD I SAY.

I GUESS THE TIME HAS COME AND GONE
FOR ME TO GIVE A FUCK ABOUT RIGHT OR WRONG
WHY SHOULD I JUSTIFY MY ACTIONS TO NARROW-MINDED FRACTIONS
WHY CARE, WHY TRY, WHY WASTE THE TIME?

I GOTTA KNOW, IF I MAY BE SO BOLD
ARE THERE THINGS YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW?
AND I CAN'T STAND IT WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME THAT WAY
IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR A WORD I SAY.

WILL THE BARRIERS BREAKDOWN? CAUSE I’M HOPING THAT YOU’LL COME AROUND
MISCOMMUNICATION CONFOUNDS THE MEANING’S INSIDE
THERE’LL ALWAYS BE A NEW CROWD OF FINGER POINTING BIG MOUTHS
YOU MAY BE ONE OF THEM NOW, BUT THEY’LL DEVOUR YOU IN TIME.
