All alone the broadening skies
Under the every night I lie [I will lie]
Scratching claw and grip the rails
Everyday my living hell
Oh, God you know I've tried
I know how hard I tried
Ya know I tried
[Get me outta here, get me outta here man. get me outta here]
Hey I'd like to daze away to a place no one has known
In a state of mind I could call mine, that only I could own
Where I could hum a tune anytime I choose,
and then there is no such thing as time
Where I feel no pain just calm and sane
What a place for one to find
Now you see, I'm watching everything I do
and they're watching everything I say
So they will leave me be...oh, leave me be
Sometimes I ask myself, why am I even here?
and I wonder
You leave me wondering
Won't you stop watching me
I said they're watching me, watching me, watching me, yeah
Now in my corner, I got the ceiling in my eyes
Arms holding up my knees
And rocking back and forth my life
I didn't mean to feel this way
When I walked into the door, Lord
Then they ripped away my memories
And I cant remember who I was before.
And I only wanted to be sixteen and free.
......and I wonder.
