The Anarchist Lyrics
Will there be world enough in time for me to sing that song?
Are they so silent for someone alone?
For all the years I had to get along,
They told me I belonged.
I never wanted to belong!
I was so strong!

[Chorus]
I'd like me smiles in a diamond;
I'd like me happiness in love;
I'd like me all those things
I never got my fair share of,
My fair share of...

The lenses inside of me that paint the world black,
The booze of boys in the scarlet mist that's billowed into rage,
The things I've always been denied:
An empty promise that somehow died;
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage,
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage.

Failed all your science,
All the minds
Seeking blind
Through flesh and bone.
Find the blood inside this stone!
Well, I know I've never shown
What I feel I've always known.
I'll claim my vengeance on my own!
Well, I was always alone.

I'd like me smiles in a diamond;
I'd like me happiness in love.
I'd like me all those things
I'd never got my fair share of, my fair share of...

The lenses inside of me that paint the world black,
The booze of boys in the scarlet mist that's billowed into rage,
The things I've always been denied:
An empty promise that somehow died;
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage,
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage.

[Finale]
Oh, they try to get me home...
Oh, they'll never forget me...

The lenses inside of me that paint the world black,
The booze of boys in the scarlet mist that's billowed into rage,
The things I've always been denied:
An empty promise that somehow died;
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage,
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage,
A missing part of me that goes around me like a cage.
