You’re a victim of your own convictions

My naked feet were black from running in the rain

Your eyes were on me and it felt like perfection

Because no longer were we the same

 

Oh I know you better than you think

I can’t see right through everything you do

 

I see the way you look at me

But I don’t really mind

You’re too busy on the sidewalk

Watching life passing you by

 

U-uh u-uuuuh…

 

You stand tall looking down

‘Cause you got your reputation

Well I’ve got none of that

But at least I don’t watch my back

Soon it’s coming around

A change in your situation

And whatcha gonna do,

Gonna do about that?

 

Oh I know you better than you think

I can’t see right through everything you do

 

Does it make you feel real good

To be passing judgement through and through?

I bet the fear is settled in 

That people are gonna do the same to you

 

[…]

Don’t you wanna find a place

where your thoughts are free?

Aren’t you tired of this hostility

And it’s like a war,

Who’s gonna win the war

Who’s gonna win the war

Sure it’s gonna be you?
