early life/3

  at the party he was waiting
looking kind of spooky and withdrawn
like he could be underwater
the mighty mother with her hundred arms
swept all aside 
I hate to walk behind other people's ambition
I saw you waiting
with your warning 
leave alone 
you don't belong here
he got nervous 
started whistling
every thought a ricochet
did you notice?
well I wondered
what's the worst thing I could say?
and I froze up and sighed
you remind me of someones daughter
I forgot her
I forgot her name ashamed
go home and live with your pain
leave alone
leave alone 'cause you don't belong
you don't belong here
and when I go
don't you follow
leave alone 
leave alone 'cause you know you don't belong
you don't belong here
slip out quiet
nobody's looking
leave alone
you don't belong here

Couldn't find any original video or live performance, but the entire album ROMAN CANDLE(1994) is
