See these eyes so green? I can stare for a thousand years Colder than the moon It's been so long And I've been putting out fire With gasoline See these eyes so red? Red like jungle burning bright Those who feel me near Pull the blinds and change their minds It's been so long Still this pulsing night A plague I call a heartbeat Just be still with me You wouldn't believe what I've been through It's been so long, and you've been so long And I've been putting out fire with gasoline Putting out fire with gasoline See these tears to blue An ageless heart that can never mend These tears will never dry A judgement made can never ben See these eyes so green? Oh, I can stare for a thousand years Just be still with me You wouldn't believe what I've been through It's been so long And you've been so long And I've been putting out fire with gasoline Putting out fire with gasoline It's been so long, so long, so long...

I won't take all that they hand me down And make out a smile, though I wear a frown And I won't take it all lying down 'Cause once I get started I go to town 'Cause I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else And I don't want to ball about like everybody else And I don't want to live my life like everybody else And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else 'Cause I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else But darling, you know that I love you true Do anything that you want me to Confess all my sins like you want me to There's one thing that I will say to you I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else And I don't want to ball about like everybody else And I don't want to live my life like everybody else And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else 'Cause I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else Like everybody else Like everybody else Like everybody else Like everybody else If you all want me to settle down Slow up and stop all my running 'round Do everything like you want me to There's one thing that I will say to you I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else And I don't want to ball about like everybody else And I don't want to live my life like everybody else And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else 'Cause I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else Like everybody else (like everybody else) Like everybody else (like everybody else) Like everybody else (like everybody else)
