Don't Damn Me

This song is by Guns N' Roses and appears on the album Use Your Illusion I (1991).

Original video
Don't damn me
When I speak a piece of my mind
'Cause silence isn't golden
When I'm holding it inside

'Cause I've been where I have been
And I've seen what I have seen
I put the pen to the paper
'Cause it's all a part of me

Be it a song or casual conversation
To hold my tongue speaks of quiet reservations
Your words once heard, they can place you in a faction
My words may disturb, but at least there's a reaction

Sometimes I wanna kill
Sometimes I wanna die
Sometimes I wanna destroy
Sometimes I wanna cry

Sometimes I could get even
Sometimes I could give up
Sometimes I could give
Sometimes I never give a fuck

It's only for a while
I hope you understand
I never wanted this to happen
Didn't want to be a man

So I hid inside my world
I took what I could find
I cried when I was lonely
I fell down when I was blind

But don't damn me
When I speak a piece of my mind
'Cause silence isn't golden
When I'm holding it inside

'Cause I've been where I have been
An I've seen what I have seen
I put the pen to the paper
'Cause it's all a part of me

How can I ever satisfy you?
And how can I ever make you see
That deep inside we're all somebody
And it don't matter who you wanna be

But now I gotta smile
I hope you comprehend
For this man can say it happened
'Cause this child has been condemned

So I stepped into your world
I kicked you in the mind
And I'm the only witness
To the nature of my crime

But look at what we've done
To the innocent and young
Whoa, listen to who's talking
'Cause we're not the only ones

The trash collected by the eyes
And dumped into the brain
Said it tears into our conscious thoughts
You tell me who's to blame

I know you don't wanna hear me cryin'
And I know you don't wanna hear me deny
That your satisfaction lies in your illusions
But your delusions are yours and not mine

We take for granted we know the whole story
We judge a book by its cover and read what we want
Between selected lines

Don't hail me
And don't idolize the ink
Or I've failed in my intentions
Can you find the missing link

Your only validation
Is living your own life
Vicarious existence
Is a fucking waste of time

So I send this song to the offended
I said what I meant and I've never pretended
As so many others do intending just to please
If I damned your point of view, could you turn the other cheek

Don't damn me
When I speak a piece of my mind
'Cause silence isn't golden
When I'm holding it inside

'Cause I've been where I have been
An I've seen what I have seen
I put the pen to the paper
'Cause it's all a part of me

Don't damn me
I said, don't damn me
I said, don't hail me
Don't damn me

Smoke 'em if you got 'em
Alright, that sucked
