There’s something I need to confess
At the risk of exposing my faults
But I’m starting to find that most of the time
I just don’t like people at all

When I saw you five minutes ago
I was afraid you might talk off my ear
I panicked inside and decided to hide
And that’s how I ended up here
Crouching behind the live lobster tank
Hoping you’d just pass me by, oh…

That’s how I ended up here
That’s how I ended up here

Oh how I wish I could say
It’s my first time to hide in this spot
But with all of the people I try to avoid
I find myself down here a lot

I mean, just look at these guys in the tank
With the red rubber bands ’round their arms
If they don’t open up
And just keep to themselves
They won’t do anyone harm

So I screen my calls,
don’t answer the door
Sometimes wish I could disappear,

oh…That’s how I ended up here
That’s how I ended up ..

Building a wall so no one could bother me
Living my life in isolation
Opening up to only those close to me
Nobody’s close to me, what have I done?

See, I really want to be known
But I’m not quite as strong as the fear
That you won’t understand the fool that I am
And that’s how I ended up here
That’s how I ended up here
That’s how I ended up here
