I clench my teeth and my fist just to get by
I fake a smile but it won't help anymore
If I have better things to do with my time
Show me the clock when I'm of and out that door

I know I'm on my own
I'll kick and I'll scream and I'll fight to find my way home
It's give and take when the weight's on your shoulders
If I could do it all again then I wouldn't
And it's a long way down
I tried and I tried and I pray my legs won't fail me now
The pain was all in my head, now it's over
Why should I care when it's easier to pretend?

And I said, "Hey, life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"
And I said, "Hey, life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"

You don't belong

I've been listening to things that I can't hear
I've walked a mile but I've only moved an inch
And I've been hiding from myself for so long
But I'll be ready when I know the coast is clear

I feel like giving up
So don't hold your breath because you know I've had enough
It's give and take to create what we wanted
If I could do it on my own then I'd be fine
There's no one by my side
I'll pick up the pieces and then at least I know I've tried
I'm not afraid of the ways that I'm honest
I know we're running out of time

And I said, "Hey, life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"
And I said, "Hey, life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"

You don't belong

It's a long way down so don't hold your breath
I feel like giving up as I fall to the depths of hell

"But life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"
And I said, "Hey, life goes on and on
Don't get caught up in the middle
Of another stupid riddle if you don't belong"

You don't belong
