Born Out Of Rhythm.
Born out of rhythm, in a world so filled with din
A man just born to suffer, or there ain’t no moving in
He was born beyond the other side of town
And he never lets his burdens weigh him down.
He’s trying to grab the sky to find the way
The future where, and where was yesterday?
He’s trying to be a nowhere man
And no one strives to really understand.
He moves into a corner as they try to keep him down
He knows another world
so his words they try to drown.
Born to be humbled, he can’t let them get him down
As he throws away his pride
lets them treat him like a clown
Or anything, it doesn’t mean a thing
As he tries to wither, sees what that will bring.
