lyrics

It's late at night,
Got her headphones on;
Reality is distant,
Far away.

She don't fear earthquakes,
Nor heavy traffic as she
drags her feet
across the road.

But she's afraid of people.
She tells herself ain't got nobody else.
So afraid of getting hurt again
And she's so afraid of herself.

Tom was an 'orrid prick,
Melissa tried to burn her hair,
Sam tripped her in the hall
And Freddy kicked her in the head.

She couldn't leave and couldn't run,
Only fourteen, stuck in school,
Beaten down by other kids,
The teachers wouldn't do anything,

The teachers wouldn't do anything.

But there is solace in headphones,
A place where she can breathe between the beats.

It strikes a chord in her,
A place to find her sanity:
The world inside her walkman,
The world inside her walkman.

She's afraid of people.
She tells herself ain't got nobody else.
So afraid of getting hurt again
And she's so afraid of herself.
