People like us shouldn’t bother with friends
People like us look out for our own ends.
We don’t think about what’s nice, right or fair
We do what we want, we simply don’t care
What anybody who’s watching us thinks
That we’re evil or mental, gone over the brink
People like us never ever show fear
People like us can push back all the tears
We’re happy to tell people bare faced lies
We’re just great at it, can’t say I know why.
We don’t get put off by what people say
All that matters to us is getting our own way

You were only a small child
When they took you from the wild,
They cleaned you up, brought you inside,
They did their best, they really tried
To make you better, fix the damage
They did as much as they could manage,
They kept you safe and kept you warm
They kept you sheltered from the storms.
You were safe but not content;
Even though to some extent
You realised, you understood
This really was for your own good
You couldn’t adjust, this just felt wrong
You felt like you never could belong.
But even so, you really tried
To stem the storms brewing inside.

There’s something I’ve forgotten,
Something that I just can’t find.
There’s something that is hidden,
Locked away inside my mind.
There’s something that is missing,
Something bad or something good,
I just can’t remember it
And I feel I really should.

They said that you were a monster
That you were crazy, mad
They told me you were dangerous
And that that made you glad.
And you stood there like a sculpture,
Set apart and alone
With tense shoulders and hands in fists,
Your face was set in stone
But as I looked closer at you
I saw something else there
You were angry, you were bitter,
But mostly, you were scared.
You were tense, alert and ready
But not to fight – to flee
It was clear once you took a look,
But no-one cared to see

I wish you all you’re dreaming of,
The fortune and the fame.
And legions of adoring fans,
To chant and shout your name.
You’ll be the media darling,
Who can’t do any wrong.
You’ll act, you’ll write, have perfect looks,
And nail every song.

I trusted you, right from the start
My heart was in your hands
I trusted you, and didn’t doubt
About the way you felt.
I thought you’d be there to catch me
And see I needed you
You told me that you’d always care
Be there when things went wrong.

Don’t tell me that you love me
We both know that’s a lie.
Don’t say you’d do anything,
You wouldn’t even try.
Don’t claim you’d give the world to be
With me, it isn’t true,
Don’t say you’ll spend your life with me,
Because that’s just not you.
