lyrics

Don’t let them cast me an outlaw
When I’ve long paid for my crimes
And don’t let them turn me into something
That you will be ashamed of in time

Don’t let them make me a martyr
For the small bit of good that I’ve done
It’s a drop in an ocean of scarlet
And it might have been there all along

And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
No I don’t, No I don’t

It’s a funny thing when you think it
How all of this time you’ve been taught
And as a student of former religion
I was one in the land of the lost

Forever seems like a lifetime
For what seems more like a day
And the miles show in your eyes
When you talk about it in this way

And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
No I don’t, No I don’t

And I don’t know why
(The miles in your eyes
Are passing you by)
No I don’t, No I don’t

And I don’t know why
(The miles in your eyes
Are passing you by)
No I don’t, No I don’t
