enlighten me lyrics – echo & the bunnymen

it was cheap at half the price
took a shovel where a spoon would suffice
now i can’t see you
now i can’t see you

regimental in my way
detrimental at the end of the day
but you won’t be told
no, you won’t be told

i will be, i will be
i won’t be frightened
i will be, i will be
i’ll be enlightened

would it pain you so to say
there’s a splinter in your
splendour today
i could believe you
i would believe you

there’s a world inside your world
there’s a gl*ss house where the insults are hurled
but you won’t be told
no, you won’t be told

i will be, i will be
i won’t be frightened
i will be, i will be
i’ll be enlightened

took a chainsaw to my mind
did a rain check, left this sad world behind
but all will be fine
yes, all will be fine

i will be, i will be
i won’t be frightened
i will be, i will be
i won’t be enlightened

i will be, i will be
(you’re shy _______)
i won’t be frightened
(you try but still the words won’t come)
i will be, i will be
(you’re shy _______)
i won’t be enlightened

i will be, i will be
(you’re shy _______)
i won’t be frightened
(you try but still the words won’t come)
i will be, i will be
(your chance had turned)
i won’t be enlightened

i will be, i will be
i won’t be frightened
i will be, i will be
i won’t be enlightened
