lyrics

guess what you haven't really got one single clue as to who i am inside
now i see it wasn't really me you tried to love and ended up so dissatisfied

and i can't believe i ever cared to leave myself behind
and try to be something of which you could approve
how could i have ever been so blind

oh yes your life's a mess but you know best how to speak my mind and live my life for me
heads up i'm not some wooden puppet for you to practice all the things that you haven't got the guts to be

and i can't believe i ever cared to leave myself behind
and try to be something of which you could approve
how could i have ever been so blind
kiss my ass
get up off your high and mighty throne
kiss my ass
don't you come one home till you've grown a little backbone of your own

all those times you chipped away chipped me down to size
all this time i thought that i was so immune only now i realize

you're so proud sitting in the crowd you think somehow that this is just another feather in your cap
your chin a condescending grin but someday someone'll clip it with a thunderclap slap
i hope i'm around for that

'cause i can't believe i never dared to leave your sorry ass behind
instead i tried to be something of which you could approve
i'm no longer so deaf dumb and blind
kiss my ass
get up off your high and mighty throne
kiss my ass
don't you come one home till you've grown a little backbone of your own
stop living everybody else's life and live your own
