Within my heart I never conceived
Such a wound could bleed so deep
Hidden from the rules of society
We bleed from our truth into our masks
This mask I long to remove
We are suffocating in our own veils
The pretence that society encourages
Why be solid when you can be liked?
Why be what you are when you can be her?
Why not be the conformist who reaks of acceptance?
These masks we melt onto our identity
The image of people you want us to be
Sooner or later our resistance will falter
And we will rise as the new difference
Did it never occur to you?
Do you realise how vital it is?
Do you know who you really are?
I never understood the value of confidence
I never imagined that I'd want to end this
I never realised how much I want to be me
