Lyrics

I been through your nursery rhyme I been through your nursery rhyme I took all your nickels and dimes But you left me cold You wouldn't let me hold On longer than it took to go I don't care if I die I don't even care if I'm in a wheelchair Or in a bed Unable to move For all I know It's better than what I did today You lead me on You bring me up And then you take away my floor I'm standing I'm trying to stand Somehow you push me down You let me up and have me on a shoulder Tell me go on go ahead on And then you push me down Down But I know, I know you want to let me up Another time And I don't know why Sometimes I think maybe You let me up just to push me down You let me feel good Just to let me feel bad And it was OK It was so OK But now I'm slippin You gave me one thing You took away two I don't know Oh, what you're trying to do Am I going down the wrong road Am I doing the wrong thing Please let me know Please tell me loud I want to know I'm asking please Let me know Let me know the right way Oh, is there a right way And I know Yes I know That there's a wrong way I saw today But you showed me before That I can lose All the faith I had That I can be So small That I can lose All I got All my faith All my hope Where does it go And you can't tell me any little thing Because I feel I feel So bad You can be happy You can laugh laugh laugh But I take a look I see the Chinese I see the Japanese They're laughing and joking Having a good time I see people in the paper I see the models Oh what a person I see them walking down the street They look so good But I can't have it I'm locked up I'm inside this thing And I can't Oh no I can't I can't get out I can't take what I want I can see it Oh I can see it But it's not mine You build me up You show me these things You push me down You say forget it You can't have anything You just stay down I say let me up Please let me up You gotta let me up You pushed me down Down on the ground I can't be here I can't be here Please make a change Help me live I want to give I want to do I want to have your life I want to have your life Give me your life Let me up I know you can let me up You don't have to keep me down You don't have to You don't have to You don't have to keep me down Keep these things Away from me These bad things Away from me I wanna be right I'm willing to live a routine I'm willing to exercise my day I'm willing to give up Hah, I'm willing Oh I'm willing You've got to let me up You know I'll do anything but Don't push me down Don't push me down You make me wonder What should I do Should I come out Yeah, should I leave this thing I can do it I can do it Is that what you want I don't think so But you can change my mind You can change my mind You can have me Have all of me All but, let me up Let me up Give me a chance Don't push me down Don't push me down And you know I I know, I can't ever Push you down I can't ever Let you up You got it all You got it all Give me some Give me some of your life I want your life I want your life I'm willing to pay Pay the price Out of my life Take what it costs You got it all You always had it all So take it all You know you got it Yeah I'll live on I'll live on And I see the Chinese I see the beautiful people I want them But I don't need them I don't need them You know what I need I need you Give me your life Give me your life Take mine Take my life You got it It's always been yours Always been yours You got my life You got it Give me yours Give me your life Give me your life Give me your life I need your life I need your life I need your life So what do I do Just what do I do You' better show me Show me Don't push me down Don't push me down Yeah, yeah I know You can push me down You can push me down You can crush me You can snuff me out I don't care I don't care if I die I don't care if I'm in a wheelchair I don't care if I'm in a bed And I can't even move Hey, would it be worse than today You can pick me up Please pick me up Oh please Pick me up Please Oh please Pick me up You can pick me up Don't push me down Don't push me down I feel bad I feel bad I been here before I've had your nursery rhymes I've had your nickels and dimes I had your good times I had your lovely people All over me I liked it Now they're all gone Now I'm alone But you got me still Yeah you got me still You let me move around But you got me still And you know it And you let me up But then you go and push me down And you hurt me And times you hurt me bad And I've got one fear In my life And that fear is that I'm slippin' I'm slipping And I see it And I feel it And I know it And I know, it doesn't have to be this way Tell me what I'm doing wrong Tell me Tell me what I'm doing wrong Because I want to be right I want to be good I don't want to be bad I know some people like to be bad And they sing about being bad And they say I'm bad You know, I want to be good I want to be right I want to be good and right I don't want to have to fight and lose Please let me win Let me win this war I'm on your side I'm on your side What else I gonna do You push me down You let me up I don't want to be down I don't want to be down Please Please Let me up Let me win Let me get this war taken care of I'll be on your side Where else am I gonna be Uhh, I love you I surely do If you want me down I'll be on the ground But let me feel Like I'm not losing ground Let me win Let me be on top somehow some way I don't need to be conventional Let me up Let me up Oh please let me up You know it's been so long It's been so long I'm trying to remember It's not easy I see myself slipping I don't want to slip Let me up Let me up I need to be up I need to be right I'm willing to work Ah, work, work I'm willing to work I love you I love you Ahh, I love you I love you Please let me win Let me win Somehow let me win I need to win Let's not have any misunderstanding I need to win I'm asking, please don't push me down I need to win your love And I'll do anything I don't know if I'm hurting myself I surely hope not But I feel like I may be slipping I want some help So I don't have to go down Cause I see the Chinese and the Japanese Laughing, talking, acting just like animals Why can't I be like an animal Take care of myself the right way Sure would be good nice Sure Let me ask you Another time Treating me right Treating me right I got some kind of feeling I'm not being treated right I don't know if I'm not treating myself right Or you're not treating me right But I'm slipping And I don't want to be slipping I want to move on I want to create I want to be ahead I want to win I want to love I want to feel like I'm moving and doing things right But oh I don't feel too good about it Why not Why don't I feel good Hey I don't know about other people I don't know what they do I don't know if they feel right Sometimes they look like they feel just fine and I don't know
