Close your eyes to what you see
Nobody can tell you who to be
You think you're all broken up?
I think you're just in a rut
You'll easily break through it
Don't back down, take every hit
When they tell you, "You're crap
A worm on the map,"
Spit on you and walk away
Only to return the very next day
Then you know who your friends are
You take stand there
You were alone just now
Never even had to ask how
You can't take a stand just yet
Because you know you'll lose any bet
So you get up, turn around
Confidence yet to be found
They smile, they know they've won
The battle ends by the setting sun
But the war's not over yet
Tomorrow's got another sun to set
And as they beat you down again
And you beg for a friend
"Someone help me out here
Give a hand, shout a jeer
They're killing me
Can't you see?"
See no evil
Hear no evil
Speak no evil
Be no evil
They all turn and walk away
With hesitation in the splay
They're sick of your words
And beat down on your world
At your final cry for life
You hear someone's strife
"Stop this horror
Stop the war
Please, please, just give it up
Walk away from the corrupt."
You smile, though it's too late
They took too long to wait
As your world fades from sight
And slowly the sun sets to night
You wonder if you even made a change
From any of those deranged
They'll do it again, another time, another place
Doesn't matter if it's you, them, or a race
Those who told you to be yourself
Where had they helped?
It'd over now, it's done
The war has been won
But which side was it—is it clear?
Was it you or them?
