I'm not a fake, it's not a phase
I don't feel safe in my own skin
Can you see my reservations
Why's your reaction so malaise
Can I not count you for a friend
An awkward piece of information

Am I lesser in your eyes
Is this just a compromise
There is no absolution
Abuse is no solution
There's no time to wait and see
With no life expectancy
We should break the institution

I'll keep raising myself up
Convince me to fall back down
I know I'm strong enough
I'll wear this crown

I am a human, I'm awake
And because of you I'm sick
With your mindset based in evil
Don't play along just for my sake
I am not how you get your kicks
I am nothing less than equal

Can you hold me like another
Or am I your burden now
Just like before I am no bother
An allied face among the crowd

So I come into my own
Cuz I know I'm not alone
There is no need to resist
Cuz friendly faces exist
There's no need to pull away
And leave it all so torn and frayed
There is a point you might have missed
