You are
Just a babe
You can't understand
Why you were made

But what do you even need to know?
If you plant a seed that's where it's gonna grow
Well sometimes your plans get turned around
But your voice is not the only sound

You sit and watch
As others pass by
You can't understand
Why it's them and not you

But what do you even deserve?
Our purpose in life is not to serve
The ones who bring us down and make us hurt
All they do is rub your face in the dirt

Now you sit
At the Fish Bowl and cry
You can't understand
Why everyone's gotta die

But one day you'll have to fly, too
Then all that's left is memories of you
Well don't be scared cause there's nothin' you can do
I'm sorry this is happening to you
I'm sorry this is happening to you
