Almost Human - Voltaire

What did I ever do to you
That you should treat me this way?
Is it really such a crime
For an angel to speak his mind?
Anytime I'll try to shed some light
If I were a big boy
I wouldn't cry
But since I'm not a big boy
I'll have to cry

What did I ever do so wrong
That you should cast me from grace
Though I love to rule in Hell here
How I miss the taste of Heaven
Its soft and cool embrace
If I were a big boy
I wouldn't cry
But since I'm not a big boy
I'll have to close my eyes
And picture what it's like

I'm just like you
I'm made by He
Despised by they
I'm almost me
I'm nearly human
Look at me
I'm almost a human being

I'm just like you
I'm made by He
Despised by they
I'm almost me
I'm nearly human
Pity me
I'm almost a human being

I still remember your light
And it was streaming down
And burning out my eyes
If I were a big boy
I wouldn't cry
But since I'm not a big boy
I'll have to close my eyes
And picture what it's like

I'm just like you
I'm made by He
Despised by they
I'm almost me
I'm nearly human
Look at me
I'm almost a human being

These tears are real
I'm jealousy
I'm spite and hate
To the core I'm mean
I'm nearly human
Look at me
I'm almost a human being

I'm just like you
Better than He
To Hell with they
I'm almost me
I'm nearly human
Pity me
I'm almost a human being

Don't touch me, oh
I couldn't bear the thought of it, now
Don't touch me, oh
I couldn't bear the strain
Don't touch me, oh
I couldn't bear the thought of it, now
Touch me
Touch me
Touch me
Don't touch me
Touch me
Touch me
