lyrics

You ask if I'm sorry, well let me say this
Been here at the bottom since I was a kid
My mother was sorry when I saw the day
She just couldn't help it, I'm sorry to say

Well it seemed as if everyone else had the right
To bite any pieces of me that they liked
They beat me and hurt me till I ran away
And if they were sorry, they just didn't say

Sorry...sorry
My mother was sorry when I saw the day
Sorry...sorry
She just couldn't help it, I'm sorry to say

I gatecrashed a party in downtown LA
With pretty young people, successful and gay
I tied 'em all up - then I blew them away
I just couldn't help it, I'm sorry to say

Sorry...sorry
I tied them all up then I blew them away
Sorry...sorry
I just couldn't help it, I'm sorry to say

You hordes of reporters and video crews
I don't understand all these words that you use
I question myself as you ask me your whys
I don't know how to deal with the sorry thing, guys...

Well I understand rules, regulations and force
Procedure is easy, I understand war
I understand angry day after day
But sorry's beyond me I'm sorry to say

Sorry...sorry
I understand angry day after day
Sorry...sorry
Sorry's beyond me
I'm sorry to say
