Lyrics
You see it - I'm in it - one man freak show
Walk by me - Excite me - moving real slow
Can't accept it, a comical parade
Can't accept it, part of the charade

Just hangin' by a thin thread - on borrowed time
Think you've got it, the same habits - sure you won't mind
Can't accept it, a comical parade
Can't accept it, part of the charade

You think I don't know
What you're thinking
With my outreached hand
Yeah you think you're the better man
The look in your eyes
What do you care
Look at all us freaks
Cluttering your city streets

You don't know me nor my history - what brought me here
Walk right past me and avoid me - drag I'm even there
Can't accept it, it doesn't have to be
Can't accept it, don't want your sympathy

Was tired of the fast pace - the direction
Then I landed right on my face - poor perception
Can't accept it, the comical charade
Can't accept it, badly written play

You think I don't know
What you're thinking
Yeah I might look weak
But I'm right where I wanna be
Got my piece of the wall
Got my corner
I don't want no more
I'm right where I wanna be

Can't accept this, your comical parade
Can't accept this, oh the sweet charade

I know you are thinking the same thing
Waking everyday, know the character you play
I left mine with complete abandon
Don't regret it none, left my wife, daughter and my son

You think I don't know
What you're thinking
With my outreached hands
Do away with this retched man
The look in your eyes
What do you care
Look at all us freaks
Cluttering your city streets
