I've been burning
And dousing the flames
I feel the whiplash
Of the backlash on my face
I melt to sleep at night
But I wake to trip the day
Never for you never for me
Would I kiss your feet of clay

I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise
Am I the victim of youth
Is this the truth
Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me

There's no conscience
In charity or shame
The voice deceives me
But believe me it's the same
I see the black in white
And the color in the gray
Better for me better for you
Gonna bleach it all away

I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise
Am I the victim of youth
Is this the truth
Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me

Left hand gives
And the right hand takes away

Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me
I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise
I see the scars, I hear the lies
So what's the truth
Why don't you tell me
