xxSoulBoundxx - Just Want To Be Me

I turn my head
My parents don't see
I'm slowly dying
Just want to be me.

"You should be a doctor."
A smile you can't find
My identity is fading
My dreams left behind.

You tell me to grow up
And stop acting like a clown
But who are you to say that
Tearing my spirit down.

At dinner, you berate me
I pretend not to mind
You start insulting me
Now I'm crying inside.

I turn my head
My parents don't see
I'm slowly dying
Just want to be me.
