lyrics

I can't call the people animals
'Cause I'd be an animal, too
The wild and senseless things I've done
Could land me a cage at the zoo
Keepers would cover children's eyes
They'd curse me for all that I do
No I can't call the people animals
'Cause I'd be an animal too
And I could be locked up with you.

I can't call the government evil
'Cause I'd be sent straight down to hell
The cruel and unjust desires I've had
I simply could not ever tell
Councils would have me burned alive
They'd lock my remains in a cell
No I can't call the government evil
'Cause I'd be sent straight down to hell
And you could be down there as well.

I can't call the teachers ignorant
'Cause I'd be as simple as they
The brainless and stupid things I've said
Could fill up a volume a day
Textbooks would call me a failure,
They'd warn how I'd wandered astray
No I can't call the teachers ignorant
'Cause I'd be as simple as they
And you could be with me all day.

I can't call the parents psychotic
'Cause I'd be at least twice as ill
The strange and bizarre beliefs I've held
Could fetch quite an interesting pill
Mothers would crusade against me
They'd toil to restrain my free will
No I can't call the parents psychotic
'Cause I'd be at least twice as ill
And you could be footing the bill.

I can't call you a friend or lover,
'Cause I'd never want you to be
The spiteful and cold things you whisper
Could only create misery
This guilt and self-doubt are disgusting
They root all the problems I see
No I can't call you a friend or lover
'Cause I'd never want you to be
But you could be a part of me.
