Woke up one morning

And everything changed

Didn't get no say in it

Life was rearranged

When I stop to consider it

How far I've come

Look at the road ahead

It's only just begun

I look at the world

Don't like what I see

There are days

When I just wish I could be

A kid again

But I'm forced to grow up

Into a skin that don't fit

Can't be me

Cuz I'm not allowed to be

I have to fit in with the crowd

Opened my eyes one day

And the world seemed converted

Like the course of the orbit

Had been diverted

When I stop to consider it

Before I put on my face

Wonder what'll happen if I don't?

Will pieces fall out of place?

I look at the world

Don't like what I see

There are days

When I just wish I could be

A kid again

But I'm forced to grow up

Into a skin that don't fit

Can't be me

Cuz I'm not allowed to be

I have to fit in with the crowd

Looked in a mirror today

Saw the plea in my eyes

How come no one else

Can see through this disguise?

Contemplating the world

We all agree to the lie

That I so much despise so much

I wonder why

I look at the world

Don't like what I see

There are days

When I just wish I could be

A kid again

But I'm forced to grow up

Into a skin that don't fit

Can't be me

Cuz I'm not allowed to be

I have to fit in with the crowd

This face doesn't wear on me

Cuz I hate this lie I live in

It just doesn't work for me

I don't fit in this skin
