lyrics

Last in a line
I'm as far as this can go
I will never be fine
This old world isn't mine
Used to feel it now I know, whoa-oh

Kids are cruel but they're shameless
They want to know why you aren't the same as
Them, again, they're not blaming you
They just want to understand
You're not damned yet, they'll get
There soon though, hide what you can
What still shows through might get pretty hard for you

Pretty helps too, pretty can't hurt
Pretty makes the rules, better watch how they work
Better work hard, show you've got worth
Make it worth their while to put up with your style
Or your smile or your mind, make it worth their time
To expand their land to include your kind
Pray they never find something they can't abide
And throw you back outside

It's cold there, souls there
Are broken but in different ways
Opposites attract cause
They're both trying to compensate
Things they learned to hate
About themselves, their babies
Will not be as strange as
Them and end up

Last in a line
I'm as far as this can go
I will never be fine
This old world isn't mine
Used to feel it now I know, whoa-oh

We grew up together
I began to wonder whether
It would ever get better for you
They say "it gets better" now
But it got worse first
You skipped school, I should have tried
To fight them more, I think I knew
It's easier to burn a witch
Than fight a war, pass me a torch

Cause I'm the next one they'd come for
Pass me a pitchfork I'm so insecure
Like girls, ok, I'm so into her
My friend, yeah, he's too different to
Even get invited to the parties
I complained about it once
He told the host I wasn't happy
That almost cost me my invite
After that I kept him on the outside

I regret it, can't forget it
There's nights when I lie so pathetic
Wouldn't wish this on anyone
Last in a line is fine, I won't pass it on
It'll die with me, mercifully
Any more would be unbearable
And I won't bear an enfant terrible, the

Last in a line
I'm as far as this can go
I will never be fine
This old world isn't mine
Used to feel it now I know, whoa-oh

Last in a line
I'm as far as this can go
I will never be fine
This old world isn't mine
Used to feel it now I know, whoa-oh
