nothing new
 
Confusion is nothing new
I am nothing new
I am not the unexplained
I am not a  soul detained
Yes, I should have been born
Yes, I should have been born
 
Caught up in the wonder.
Struck down by the thunder
I am not afraid
for someone else has paid
So yes, I should have been born
Yes, I should have been born
 
Never questioning the source,
Overwhelmed by the force
Convinced you know the answer -
Even I don't know the answer
But yes, I should have been born
Yes, I should have been born
 
Darkness obliterates light
Ignorance takes away sight
Tenderness is no more
Rotten to the core
And yes, I should have been born
Yes, I should have been born
 
Take away my rights
Win without a fight
End it before it began
Relief for every man
Do you wish I'd never been born?
Why do you wish I'd never been born?
Why will you not see that
Yes, I should have been born
Yes, I should have been born
And now, I shall live.
