I was born and I was bred
I was reared and I was fed
Moved into the neighborhood
Where I was bad and I was good

I fixed things for people there
I took them out I don't know where
I colored in their lives to give them outlines

I walked before I'll walk again
I'll walk along a line of men
And walk into the lion's den

I think you know but you won't say
Just what it is makes life this way
But I'm not going to take this lying down

Reach for the stars retch for the earth
We took the earth and made it worse
And there was never any doubt
We ate it up we spat it out

And still we love to say we did it our way
On this voyage of discovery
I'm blinded by the things I see

I've seen before I'll see again
I'll look along a line of men
And fall into the lion's den

Now you can pray your head is bared
And I'm not saying I'm not scared
But I'm not going to take this lying down

I think you know but you won't say
Just what it is makes life this way
But I'm not going to take this lying down
