Reasons for Silence (Ed's Song)

This song is by The Delgados and appears on the album The Great Eastern (2000).

Give me an age where I don't know a thing
Where black and white offers me peace from the din
Bright lights, cat fights leave me cold

Recent encounters are telling me why
My reasons for silence are so justified
I can hear you, please turn down

All these pretenders pretending to be
How do they recognize people they see?
Lives by numbers pass me by

Centered around what they know isn't true
But what is needed for distorted view
Try not to think now; you've been warned

I tried to fake it, but I got found out
Fakers who fake it are on the way out
It's just me
But I'll let myself be
And the others go free
But I know who will win
I'm on the outside
