Paper Tiger Lyrics

You can see them
you can feel them
they'll try and fight you
but the won't bite you
they'll irritate you
don't let them hate you

Cause no one even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take

They'll surround you
hammers pound you
they will use you
then abuse you
They'll desert you
don't let that hurt you

Cause no even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take
Because, all they're trying to say to me is a great big lie
Like all you need to cure the pain is to go get high
I don't think they understand at all

They'll envy you for all of your power
They'll make you hurt for hours and hours
Just like you used to
Just like you used to
They'll beat you down and call you names
They'll look at you through eyes of disdain
Just like they used to
Just like they used to

Cause no even really knows your name
Cause no even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take
Because, all they're trying to say to me is a great big lie
Like all you need to cure the pain is to go get high
I don't think they understand at all
I don't think they understand at all
