Reborn

Don't be what society expects you to be.
Be who you are.
Find your truth and purpose.
Live.

Every little tear and every little smile I've shown you
Is another big part of this beautiful lie I'm fooling everyone with
I'm trying to fit in and I'm trying to be part of your world
It's the only way that I would ever be seen

It's another sunny start to another hellish day on this Earth
I don't want to sin again but I'll always have to lie to be heard
I'm close to falling apart and breaking down to pieces
So give me the strength to go on

Don't know where to go, don't know where to hide
I'm lost in a sea of plastic faces I don't want to be in
With every word I say, every laugh I fake
I tear myself inside
I want to end this life...
Be born again.

Whenever I stop and take a look around I'm blinded
By the foolish little games and deceptive acts we've started
Take a step back, try to stand your ground and fight it
Fight for what's left of us

But they don't want to hear, they don't want to know
Caught up in all the traps they've entered, they don't want to face it
Searching for the truth hidden in our minds
Reality's not waiting
Let's be born again.

Breathe. 
I reach out for anything that's real
Keeping count of every step I take away
Ever step I take towards
Freedom.

I'm not going to run, I'm not going to hide
Sick of losing all I am, I don't want to fall again
Ready to believe, ready to free
I will not surrender 

I'm not going to run, I'm not going to hide
I will be just who I am, this is my second chance
Ready to believe, ready to be free
Sailing toward my future

I'm born again,
I'm born again.

The End
