(Courtney, Todd, Daltrey)

Days go - so slow
Life just slipping away
Day after day
The wall's too close to me now
Oh I can't take too much more
All the lying
Is it just an illusion
I've been feeling the strain
And it's more than just pain
I can't help myself
'Cause I've lost myself

If I could see you through the wire
And just forget about tomorrow
No one listens to what I am saying
I'm just a sad man another sad man
They say I'm no bad man
But I'm no bad man

Wasted - wasted
All my life's been wasted
Sitting here in this room
I can never feel warm
I can get no release
It's all war and no peace

If I could see you through the wire
And just forget about tomorrow
Someone listen to what I am saying
I'm just a sad man another sad man.

If I could see you through the wire
And just forget about tomorrow
Someone listen to what I am saying
I'm just a sad man another sad man
Don't say I'm a bad man
'Cause I'm no bad man

They say it's wrong to set me free
I'll do no harm, 'Cause I'm no bad man
