I need to be myself.
“Flex your head,” and told to use.
“The kind are strong, not the abusive.”
“Open up,” cause “looks don't matter.”
“Be yourself,” not like the fucking masses–
In my youth I found my truth in songs
about the true meaning of being strong,
Yeah from YOU:
You didn't teach me what to fucking wear,
you were the scene who showed me the courage to care,
not some tough guys or stuck-up motherfuckers.
What the fuck happened to you? Fuck your violence and culture of cool.
Massachusetts, I thought you were a scene of open minds & open hearts?
Was I a foolish kid or did you mean it? Show you mean it.
