Verse 1

Whoever told

You that it's okay to hit

A nine year old

In front of the class

Was a sadist.

Verse 2

It's been years

Since that horror fest.

But the shock is

Still raw in my chest,

You sick beast!

Pre-chorus

You didn't hear my side of the story.

You didn't give me a chance to speak.

You made me beg and say that I'm sorry.

You exerted your power on the helpless weak.

Chorus

You believe everything everyone tells you.

You don't bother to verify if it's true.

That's okay, live your life your way.

But tell me, why am I standing here today?

Why did I deserve to be a victim

Of your corporal punishment?

Can you give me back those painful days

Nine year old me had spent?

I gave you back a slap in the face

By being a star student.

And when I'm living in a big city,

You're gonna hear from me.

Verse 3

You went back

To your air-conditioned room.

I cried and cried

Because of gloom and doom.

You didn't care.

Verse 4

You apologized

But later, in private.

I haven't forgotten

A single thing till date.

It's so unfair.

Pre-chorus

You didn't hear my side of the story.

You didn't give me a chance to speak.

You made me beg and say that I'm sorry.

You exerted your power on the helpless weak.

Chorus

You believe everything everyone tells you.

You don't bother to verify if it's true.

That's okay, live your life your way.

But tell me, why am I standing here today?

Why did I deserve to be a victim

Of your corporal punishment?

Can you give me back those painful days

Nine year old me had spent?

I gave you back a slap in the face

By being a star student.

And when I'm living in a big city,

You're gonna hear from me.

Bridge

I'm bigger than you.

I'm not cruel.

I'm not nightmare fuel.

I don't scare kids for good.

I don't have a heart made of wood.

Pre-chorus

You didn't hear my side of the story.

You didn't give me a chance to speak.

You made me beg and say that I'm sorry.

You exerted your power on the helpless weak.

Chorus

You believe everything everyone tells you.

You don't bother to verify if it's true.

That's okay, live your life your way.

But tell me, why am I standing here today?

Why did I deserve to be a victim

Of your corporal punishment?

Can you give me back those painful days

Nine year old me had spent?

I gave you back a slap in the face

By being a star student.

And when I'm living in a big city,

You're gonna hear from me.
