Lyrics:

Ooh, don’t damn me
when I speak a piece of mind,
’cause silence isn’t golden
when I’m holding it inside.
‘Cause I’ve been where I’ve been
an’ I’ve seen what I have seen.
I put the pen to the paper
’cause it’s all a part of me. Be it a song
or casual conversation,
to hold my tongue speaks
of quiet reservations.
Your words once heard,
they can place you in a faction.
My words may disturb,
but at least there’s a reaction.
Oh, yeah, ooh yeah. Sometimes I wanna kill.
Sometimes I wanna die.
Sometimes I wanna destroy.
Sometimes I wanna cry.
Sometimes I could get even.
Sometimes I could give up.
Sometimes I could give.
Sometimes I never give a fuck. It’s only for a while,
I hope you understand.
I never wanted this to happen,
didn’t wanna be a man.
So I hid inside my world.
I took what I could find.
I cried when I was lonely.
I fell down when I was blind. But don’t damn me
when I speak a piece of mind,
’cause silence isn’t golden
when I’m holding it inside.
‘Cause I’ve been where I have been
an’ I’ve seen what I have seen.
I put the pen to the paper
’cause it’s all a part of me. How can I ever satisfy you?
An’ how can I ever make you see that,
deep inside we’re all somebody?
An’ it don’t matter who you wanna be.
But now I gotta smile.
I hope you comprehend
For this man can say it happened
’cause this child has been condemned.
So I stepped into your world.
I kicked you in the mind.
An’ I’m the only witness
to the nature of my crime. But look at what we’ve done
to the innocent and young.
Whoa, listen to who’s talking,
’cause we’re not the only ones.
The trash collected by the eyes
and dumped into the brain.
Said, it tears into our conscious thoughts,
you tell me who’s to blame. I know you don’t wanna hear me cryin’.
An’ I know you don’t wanna hear me deny
that your satisfaction lies in your illusions.
But your delusions are yours an’ not mine.
We take it for granted
we know the whole story.
We judge a book by its cover an’ read what we want
between selected lines. Don’t hail me
an don’t idolize the ink
or I’ve failed in my intentions.
Can you find the missing link?
Your only validation
is in living your own life.
Vicarious existence
is a fucking waste of time.
So I send this song to the offended.
I said what I meant and I’ve never pretended
as so many others do
intending just to please.
If I damned your point of view,
could you turn the other cheek? Don’t damn me
when I speak a piece of mind,
’cause silence isn’t golden
when I’m holding it inside.
I’ve been where I have been
an’ I’ve seen what I have seen.
Put the pen to the paper
’cause it’s all a part of me.
Don’t damn me.
I said don’t damn me.
I said don’t hail me.
Ah, don’t damn me! Smoke ’em if ya got ’em!
All right! That’s sucked!
