If you can't do what you want to do, if you can't live up to what others expect, it's a battle against yourself. Abandoned by your own soldiers, the pain doubled, you wonder if that war can be won at all.

Do you know, do you know
What it's like to feel lost
Inside yourself alone
Broken into pieces
Do you know, do you know
What it's like to feel wrong
Belong nowhere here
And neither there
No place safe, no place home

All I ever feel is misunderstood
Could you take a single minute
And listen to what I say
All I ever feel is mistreated
Could you take a single minute
And think of what you do
Just what, just what
Will you leave behind?

Do you know, so you know
What I'm forced to fake
Kneeled begging please
Useless pride forgot
Do you know, do you know
What I'm forced to take
Course thrown away
Soul trempled down
No poison good, no poison bad

All I can feel is misused,
Could you take a single minute
And keep to what you say
All I can feel is misplaced
Could you take a single minute
And show me some way out
Just what, just what
Will you leave behind?

Do you know, do you know
What it's mean to fear
Lions awaiting outside
Demons crying inside
Do you know, do you know
What it's mean to bear
Bone gives slowly
Life fades quickly
No hope lost, no hope gained

All I can feel is mistaken,
Could you take a single minute
And look at this built rage
All I can feel is misshapen,
Could you take a single minute
And look at this sorry face
Just what, just what
Will you leave behind?

Did it once occur to you
Maybe one fine day
It could be me using you
Laugh while you can
