Can You Label Me, 'Fucked

Up'?

words by loRelei

So say we cheat in this game of life

So say we take this supposed 'easy way out'?

Just cause you cheat doesn't mean you'll always

win

But we still don't know what the rules are all about

So we dye our hair different than yours?

So we paint or nails different colors?

Does that give you the right to define who the hell

we are?

You never even knew me from the start!

Do you think we care?

Insult us if you dare!

Tell me everything you love

And tell me the reason why.

Tell me why you hate

And tell me why you try.

Do you people give a damn about anyone else?

All I hear is what you think of yourself.

Can't you see

He's not always happy?

That secret he keeps

Is why he cries when he sleeps

Did you ever take another

Look at her?

She's not okay

That's for sure.

Watch her sigh

Everytime you walk by.

Tell me everything you love

Tell me the reason why

Tell me why you hate

And tell me why you try.

You know, everytime I see you

I wanna look in your face

But i keep my eyes down

Cause it feels like you don't care.

I'm scared to say

How difficult it is to bear...

Oh I know...

So adults...you wish to take us over, too?

So adults...you supposedly know what's best for us.

Do you?

So let's look at the subject everyone avoids...
Could we ever be happy?

Oh they know, oh we don't know

Oh they know, oh we don't know

Oh they know, oh we don't know

I don't know! I don't know!

.....

...

..

.

Tell me everything you love

Tell me the reason why.

Tell me the way you hate

And tell me why you try

Oh what do I know

Oh what do we know

Oh well what do you know?

So say we cheat in this game of life.

Well, hell! I ain't no crystal ball!
