No one should have to be
A stranger in their own skin
Nor play the walk-on role
In lives their friends are starring in
This is a human game, so first make sure that you are one of those

People are made for people
I did not make the rules
Some people fit together like puzzle pieces
And some have to use
Blunt instruments to fly into a temporary fit
And I can't can't can't get used to it

These hands are lion's hands
And I've got a lion's tail
And I'm walkin all around
Inside my padded lion cell
And wouldn't it be nice to pick the kids up from their mom's and bring em here
On this fine afternoon?
See me walk all around
Take pleasure in my presence
Delight in this rare treat you found
But when you leave I'm still a lion walking all around
And I can't can't can't get used to it

If I fell in my apartment
Would it even make a sound?
Would I hear the upstairs neighbor
Shout that I should keep the noise down?
This is a lion thing, so don't come round or you could lose your head

And that's not something that comes back
No matter how you try it
Cause no mind that gets out of its head
Would come back in its right it
And things that never happen never ever will because they
Can't can't can't
