Stranger than your sympathy
And this is my apology
I'm killing myself from the inside out
And all my fears have pushed you out

And I wish for things that I don't need
All I wanted
And what I chase won't set me free
It's all I wanted
And I get scared but I'm not crawling on my knees

Oh and yeah, everything's all wrong and yeah
Everything's all wrong and yeah
Where the hell did I think I was?

I'm stranger than your sympathy
I take these things so I don't feel
I'm killing myself from the inside out
And now my head's been filled with doubt

And it's hard to lead the life you choose
All I wanted
When all your luck's run out on you
All I wanted
And you can't see when all your dreams are coming true

Oh yeah, it's easy to forget and yeah
And you choke on the regrets, yeah
Who the hell did I think I was?

I'm stranger than your sympathy
And all these thoughts you stole from me
And I'm not sure where I belong
And nowhere's home and I'm all wrong

And I was in love with things I tried to make believe I was
And I wouldn't be the one to kneel before the dreams I wanted
And all the talk, and all the lies, were all the empty things disguised as me

Mmm, yeah
Stranger than your sympathy
Stranger than your sympathy
Mmhm, mmm, hmm
