Lyrics

No Use For A Name - Why Doesn't Anybody Like Me

Maybe you don't understand it
What keeps them awake at night
What goes through their little minds
When you turn off the light?
Always having to say sorry
Tears are stained on the pillow
Like the light of the moon they can't be one
Can't exist without the son
Let's think clearly for a while
Can he shine without a smile?
Why am I alone with no one to be found?
Looks like they know what's best for me
Why doesn't anybody like me, I don't understand
Guess I'll have to crawl inside, and I don't know why
I'm sitting by myself, when the problem isn't mine
Been around the block a few times
Been beat up by all his friends
Learning life is like a maze that never seems to end
Like an open book with pages left for only him to right
Life is short, this chapter takes so long
Can't tell the right from the wrong
It's so hard for you to place an expression on his face
Why doesn't anybody like me, I don't understand
Why my friends and family left me
At six years old he won't be taught a meaning to this mess
He'll just have to take a guess, and make his own plan
And we'll never see the child that was forced to be a man

Ash Can Painters - Ender

Ender's waiting at the bus stop
He left the school just after five
His bloodied hands still held the memory
Of one last schoolyard fight
World leaders watching from a distance
Hoping that this third time's the charm
What's the point in games of buggery
If the weapon's never armed

What's the use in going home
If Ender goes alone.
What's the use in going home
If Ender goes alone.

Ender's walking through the station
Always wondering about the time
As he's mastering the war games
Another birthday flutters by

Old men sit nervous at the viewscreens
All awaiting the command
A tiny twelve year old who doesn't know
The power in his hand

Ender does just what they say
Ender does just what they say
He's getting better every day
He's getting better every day
Ender doesn't want to play
He doesn't want to play
He doesn't want to play

But still they fill his mind with
Playground fights and weaponry,
Counterstrikes and strategy
It's bleeding into apathy
They won't let him go and so he

Takes his losses, turns them round
And burns their cities to the ground
And never speaks his heart aloud again

It's not the world he used to know,
But Ender's going home
It's not the world he used to know,
But Ender's going home
