"Conflict" as written by and Dana Owens Kenneth L. R. Whitehead....
Conflict, confusion, distrust...
Conflict confusion distrust

You taught me right
You taught me wrong
You taught me to always be strong
You paved the way
You showed me fear
I know now, what wasn't real
I saw one thing and heard another
I was too young to understand
I never knew what to believe
I feel so deceived

Confusion in my head
Don't understand all that you said
And now I see the light
It's times like these I realize
But how can I read these
Mixed messages that you did bring
And forgive all the pain you cause
All of the suffering

You taught me right
You taught me wrong
You taught me to always be strong
You paved the way
You showed me fear
I know now, what wasn't real
I saw one thing and heard another
I was too young to understand
I never knew what to believe
I feel so deceived

Keep my perspective straight...
Keep me away from hate...
Keep my eyes uncovered...

You taught me right
You taught me wrong
You taught me to always be strong
You paved the way
You showed me fear
I know now, what wasn't real
I saw one thing and heard another
I was too young to understand
I never knew what to believe
I feel so deceived

Conflict, confusion, distrust...
Conflict confusion distrust

I feel so deceived!

    General CommentThe lyrics here are mostly correct. Even the album's liner notes are a little bit off. But close enough that I won't correct it.

    I first heard this song on Dance Dance Revolution. It was catchy and fun to dance to. It wasn't until several years later when I actually listened to the lyrics that I realized how important this song would be to me. It's in my "bad parenting" list of songs; it shows how as a child you can be deceived and a pawn in the games of the 'adults' in the family. It messes you up for life. :(
