They said they'd let me off the hook
If I renounced my ways, but I declined
So they locked me in a tower and said
They would not let me out again
Til I changed my mind
I told them "bring it on"; that I
Was not afraid, I made myself quite clear
And now I'm trying to be brave
And to bear it like a soldier
But I do not like it here

The doors are locked
(I've tried them all),
And no one answers when I call
So I'm just leaning back against the wall
Pretending things are fine

But that ain't really doing much
To help me keep my cool or calm me down
See I am slightly claustrophobic
And the instruments of torture
Resting in the corner
Make the room look so much smaller
Thought I was stronger then they thought
I thought I was, but now I ain't so sure
Selling out was not an option,
But when viewed from this position
It don't sound so bad no more

You know? It's kind of frightening
To find I'm inching towards surrendering
But man, at this point, I'll try anything
To buy my way outside

How's about another chance?
I've learned my lesson
I've seen the light

Bite your thumbs and disagree,
Say that I waved my flag to easily.
I do not care what you think of me.
Taihen yo, yametai
