V.I.P.

I don’t deny that you’re a victim
growing up was tough on you
and as you grew the less you knew
the less you could tell the truth
comfort and happiness
blaspheme and emptiness
these are things you blindly believe
and she tore you apart
as she touched your heart
and you skipped like a stone across the sea

I don’t deny you’re a v.i.p.
sign away by the age of 23
sign away your life’s appeal
in signatures and autographs
file cabinets, contracts
these are things you blindly perceive
and she tore you apart
as she broke your heart
and you were crushed like the wind against the leaves
you got something burning in your blood
you got something burning in your blood
something is burning in your blood

but you, oh I wish you could
what she’s wanting you to see
but that’s all gone, you’re almost gone
but your heart beats strong and on and on

I don’t deny things you’ve seen
that lead you here as a v.i.p.
lead you here as a victim in pursuit
of truth yeah honesty
beauty, love, equality
these are things you hope to achieve
and she tears you apart
as she tears through your heart
and you are cut like a knife through a string
you got something burning in your blood
you got something burning in your blood
something is burning in your blood
