I am a stranger
I am a wanderer
I am sheep gone astray
And I am condemned
For how I have lived
And for what I believe

Life is absurd
That’s what I have learned
Nothing really matters
I’ve no heavy heart
Or emotional scars
I live for the moment

I will not live
Like a dead man!

I’ve been accused of being cold
Apathetic and callous
And though I love this world
It’s no place for a stoic

My desire grows
But it never shows
I just don’t care to play the game
Care to show my pain

Yes! I am a stranger!
Yes! I am a wanderer!

I will not live
Like a dead man!
