Helpless Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Countless long nights while I stare at the wall
I ask myself over again
How did I end up in this little hell?
How did it ever begin?

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, helpless

Helpless to turn back the clock
That ticks on with its cruel shiny face
It laughs while it watches
My every disgrace

I was born a sap all the nurses laughed
When they saw me the first time
They giggled and they said
"This poor little monster'd be better off dead"

Oh oh oh, helpless

Helplessly trapped in a body
I'm sure should have never been mine
I bet that my real one is doing just fine

And I don't belong here, I don't belong here
I should be quite rich with a big shiny car
A house with twelve rooms, I deserve to go far

Oh oh oh, helpless

Helplessly falling in love
But does love really last through the night?
To love and to honor, to kick and to bite!

And I don't belong there, I don't belong here
It's all a mistake I was destined for greatness
A leader, a prophet, they're just too blind to notice

Where did this whole silly story begin?
It seems that my mind has gone blank
It seems that I messed up a chapter or two
Perhaps it is best if I'm frank!

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh helpless

Helplessly lost like that
Poor chap who came for an innocent dance
He left with his brain smeared all over his pants!

'Cause he didn't belong here, he didn't belong here
He never should've left that warm cage in the zoo
His face was so ugly, what else could I do?

Can you really blame me, I had to smash it
He left me no choice, he was just like the others
So I just had to kill him like my poor, dear, old mother

Oh oh oh, helpless

Helplessly fucked in the ass
By a legion of forty ex-cons
That's what it feels like
When you walk all over me

Don't belong here, I don't belong here
Your eyes burn right through me they fill me with fear
I could've been at home watching football, and drinking beer

I say, oh oh oh, helpless, so helpless
