There's a word for it
Words don't mean a thing
There's name for it
Names make all the difference in the world

Some things can never be spoken
Some things cannot be pronounced
That word does not exist in any language
It will never be uttered by a human mouth

Let X make a statement
Let breath pass through those cracked lips
That man was my hero
Now that word has been taken from us

Some things can never be spoken
Some things cannot be pronounced
That word does not exist in any language
It will never be uttered by a human mouth

Give me back my name, give me back my name
Something has been changed in my life
Something has been changed in my life
Something must be returned to us
Something must be returned to us

That word does not exist in any language
It will never be uttered by a human mouth

Give me back my name, give me back my name
Something has been changed in my life
Something has been changed in my life
Something must be returned to us
Something must be returned to us
