I don't wanna hear the noises on TV,
I don't want the salesmen coming after me,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
I don't want it faster, I dont want it free,
I don't wanna show you what they done to me,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
I don't wanna choose black or blue,
I don't wanna see what they done to you,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

Because the tide is high,
and it's risin' still,
and I don't wanna see it at my windowsill.

I don't wanna give 'em my name and address,
I don't wanna see what happens next,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
I don't wanna live with my father's debt,
You can't forgive what you can't forget,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
I don't wanna fight in a holy war,
I don't want the salesmen knockin' at my door,
I don't wanna live in America no more.
Because the tide is high,
and it's risin' still,
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill.
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill. (x3)

MTV, what have you done to me?
Save my soul, set me free!
Set me free! What have you done to me?
I can't breathe! I can't see!
World War III,
when are you comin' for me?
Been kicking up sparks,
we set the flames free.
The windows are locked now,
so what'll it be?
A house on fire, a rising sea?

Why is the night so still?
Why did I take the pill?
Because I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
(don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
(don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
(don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
(don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
