And I'm just tryin' to fight my way out of this dream
 repeat verse pattern
Don't listen to the words I say
Weighing up if I'm enlightened
Don't shiver as you pass me by
'Cause mister, I'm the one who's frightened
The police just came and left
They wanted me and no one else
Don't pretend that you know me
'Cause I don't even know myself
I said I don't know myself
I don't mind if you try
And I don't mind if I cry once in a while
The doors aren't shut as tight as they might seem
And I'm just tryin' to fight my way out of this dream

There's only five who know my real name
My mother don't believe they know it
What she called me is the way I'm staying
And no one will ever blow it
Come on all of you big boys
Come on all of you elves
Don't pretend that you know me
'Cause I don't even know myself
I said I don't know myself
I don't mind if you try once in a while
And I don't mind if I cry once in a while
