mask of conformity

Song lyrics I wrote in English class for an assignment. It's about anti-conformity.

In this world, shrouded in lies

We search with haste, this is no race

We search to find ourselves

We are hidden behind the mask of society

Break out, Break Free, this is no way to be

Try to make yourself see

This world void of individuality

We speak as one body

Set yourself free

Speak as yourself, there is no one holding you back

Make a difference, and step off the shelf

You've been one for so long

In this world, shrouded in lies

We search with haste, this is no race

We search to find ourselves

We are hidden behind the mask of society

Break out, Break Free, this is no way to be

Look into the mirror upon the wall

Do you recognize yourself at all?

Or are you the same as all the others

Wearing masks made of lies

The one humanity has made and thrown upon you

Take it off and make your own

Don't let yet another fall to this murder

Better to be a martyr

In this world, shrouded in lies

We search with haste, this is no race

We search to find ourselves

We are hidden behind the mask of society

Break out, Break Free, this is no way to be

See this war being waged

It's inside yourself, help put it in others

Don't stand behind the lines that have been drawn

Make your own, you have no limits

Those boundaries given are followed by drones

Follow your own, and the war you will have won

In this world, shrouded in lies

We search with haste, this is no race

We search to find ourselves

We are hidden behind the mask of society

Break out, Break Free, this is no way to be

The End
