It doesn't take a genius

To tell me what I am

Or lecture me with poetry

And tell me that I can

I don't remember

What happened yesterday

But I don't give a damn about

What all those people say

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone

It don't take no Houdini

To tell me what I am

Parasites and literasites

They'd burn me if they can

But I don't give a damn about

What those people say

They pick you up and kick you out

They hurt you every day

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone

It takes years to find the nerve

To be apart from what you've done

To find the truth inside yourself

And not depend on anyone
