blink 182 Natives Lyrics

I’m like a cat in a cage, locked up and battered and bruised

I am the prodigal son, a shameful prodigy too

I am the love of your life, battering ram and confused

I turn each day into night, I stand there waiting for you

There is desire to fight, but I have nothing to prove

With the crowd and some lights, I start to feel things move

Do you have something to hide? ‘Cause I think that we all do

I am a child inside, back up and give me some room

I’m just a bastard child, don’t let it go to your head

I’m just a waste of your time, maybe I’m better off dead

You turn us loose in the night, I’m fucking Jekyll and Hyde

We’ll have the time of our lives although we’re dying inside

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’d rather go in alone

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’m never coming home

Don’t start to panic for me, ’cause I have nothing to lose

I am as bright as the sun, I burn up all that I choose

Upon the side of a field I see a city with lights

I touch her face and I kneel, she tells me she’s not alive

I am too nervous to run, like kids who scatter and hide

To reach and grab for someone, but end up buried alive

A world is waiting for me, a road that I rarely use

I start to feel my feet, they kick down walls as they move

I’m just a bastard child, don’t let it go to your head

I’m just a waste of your time, maybe I’m better off dead

You turn us loose in the night, I’m fucking Jekyll and Hyde

We’ll have the time of our lives although we’re dying inside

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’d rather go in alone

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’m never coming home

I’m just a bastard child, don’t let it go to your head

I’m just a waste of your time, maybe I’m better off dead

You turn us loose in the night, I’m fucking Jekyll and Hyde

We’ll have the time of our lives although we’re dying inside

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’d rather go in alone

So let me go, go

So let me go, go

Just let me go, go

I’m never coming home
