Laughin’ (Two Minutes’ Enlightenment) (click for MP3 file)

I cannot hear them laugh at me;
I never could before.
It never meant that much to me...to be...
An object of scorn.

And though...it might...appear that I’m still nursing every ache,
I know you never get to give back all the shit you take.

I cannot see them smirk at me;
I know they always did.
It never meant a thing to me:
I never gave a shit.


And though...you might...believe that I’m still nursing every ache,
I know you never get to give back all the shit you take.


One million miles and many years away
I stand here,
Still,
I’m immune to anything you say
And every day since then I lived the life I always wanted to.
And I never for one minute wished I could be more like you....


They never saw me smirk at them,
No matter how they stared.
And even if they heard me laugh,
I know they wouldn’t care.

And though...you might...believe that I’m still nursing every ache,
I know you never get to give back all the shit you take.

One million miles and many years away
I stand here,
Still,
I’m immune to anything you say....

You always thought you were so tough,
You’re not, you don’t have what it takes.
You’ll never have the guts to hate me like the way I hate
Myself.
