Shame - Lyrics

When you read about me in the paper
did you feel, did you feel ashamed of me?
When you read about me in the paper did you
feel, did you feel the same shame as I feel?
Is that why you didn't say anything?
When you read about me in the paper
did you feel, did you feel ashamed of me?

When you see how I perform on stage
do you feel, do you feel ashamed of me?
When you see how I perform on stage do you
feel, do you feel the same shame as I feel?
Is that why you didn't say anything?
When you see how I perform on stage
do you feel, do you feel ashamed of me?

I learned this part was wrong at the age of ten
I didn't tell at home cause I knew they felt the same
So it grew in me this feeling, this feeling of shame
And it got nurtured and molded by others, this shame
Is that why you didn't say anything,
cause it's true what they said, everything?

When I sing a song about this subject
do you feel, do you feel ashamed of me?
When I sing a song about this subject do
you feel, do you feel the same shame as I feel?
Is that why you didn't say anything?
When I sing a song about this subject do you feel ashamed of me?

I learned this part was wrong from the age of ten
And why tell anyone, effeminate, myself to blame
And now it's rooted in me, I feed it, I feed my own shame
Any look and gesture I take as a pledge to my shame
Is that why you didn't say anything,
cause it's true what they said, everything?
