Why no one will help me
I am too dumb I am too smart
They'll not understand me
I am lonely
They'll hate me
And there is not enough time
It's too hard to help me
And god wants me to work
No resting no lazy

[Chorus]
These excuses how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stoic
They've kept me locked in my own cell
