They said "I hope that you will never change" I went and cut my hair They say "Don't take your business to the big time" I bought us tickets there A slight figure of speech I cut my chest wide open They come and watch us bleed Is it art like I was hoping now? What did you expect And what did you forget That to live you let go of me with each step It becomes a progression I won't let regret manifest To aggression Are you to assess what I've been? What I am? Or become? Did you stop to accept how pathetically dumb It can be to Attack those around 'cause you're True to color, a town, a time, or a place? It's not you, it's not mine And besides it is gone And you never will find it again But I don't want to fight I just ask let me be I won't give the chance to be my enemy So go home Think it through A jet plane and a big idea I jump over the sea What ifs hot on my trail But that can't catch me, no A slight figure of speech I cut my chest wide open They come and watch us bleed Is it art like I was hoping now?
