lyrics

They cast him off to outer seas
he was the black sheep of the family
they found him dead on his setee
they all knew this day they could see
this day they'll see

he put a bullet in his head, as a result of the things they'd said
for 48 hours he had bled, the silent note and what it read

i'm not like you, you're not like me
my world is coming to an end
i haven't got no money
i haven't got no friends
when you call, call my name
don't expect to see me again
im done with you, you're done with me
my life's a tragedy

his family they didn't cry
and life is passing us all by
no one ever said goodbye
they didn't care to know the reasons why

i'm not like you, you're not like me
my world is coming to an end
i haven't got no money
i haven't got no friends
when you call, call my name
don't expect to see me again
im done with you, you're done with me
my life's a tragedy


and as we watch those silver seas
the rain is pouring down on me
the mist was cold, we couldn't see
he was the black sheep of the family

i'm not like you, you're not like me
my world is coming to an end
i haven't got no money
i haven't got no friends
when you call, call my name
don't expect to see me again
im done with you, you're done with me
my life's a tragedy
