Being them externally another clone dressed up neat
Being them waste away so it goes another day
Being them obligation struck gagged and bound forever stuck
Being them eternally or let go to be set free
I can’t escape the noise that’s ringing in my head
I can’t stand to sound the same
I can’t stand to live this way
Being them eternally kill yourself emotionally
Being them outdated roles submit your mind to thought control
Being them the pressures on contort yourself to the con
Being them this charade fight it back and break away
No ideas and nothing to be
Destroy this culture of mediocrity
Can’t be satisfied with what we see
Not being them just being me
Not being them just being free
