Lyrics

There's nothing in the way I walk that could tell you where I'm going
There's nothing in the words I speak that can betray anything I'm knowing
Don't think about the way I dress, you can fit me on a labeled shelf
Don't pretend that you know me 'cause I don't even know myself
Ooh I don't know myself

I don't mind if you try once in a while
I don't mind if I cry once in a while
The doors aren't shut as tight as they might seem
I'm just trying to fight my way out of this dream

Don't listen to the words I say, weighing up if I'm enlightened
Don't shiver as you pass me by, 'cause mister I'm the one who's frightened
The police just came and left, they wanted me and no one else
Don't pretend that you know me 'cause I don't even know myself
I said I don't know myself

I don't mind if you try once in a while
I don't mind if I cry once in a while
The doors aren't shut as tight as they might seem
I'm just trying to fight my way out of this dream

Do you remember me, I don't remember you
Do you still love me, you know I think you do
I have been gone, and some prison warder knows my scream
I'm just trying to fight my way out of this dream

There's only five who know my real name
And my mother don't believe they know it
What she called me is the way I'm staying
And no one'll ever know it
Come on all of you big boys, come on all of you elves
Don't pretend that you know me 'cause I don't even know myself
I said I don't know myself

I don't mind if you try once in a while
And I don't mind if I cry once in a while
