They told me that it wasn’t gonna last

They told me that I was gonna have a blast

They told me that everything was gonna be okay

They told me that things are gonna go my way


They told me that love was waiting for me

They told me that I was chosen and doors are gonna open


Everything I heard was a lie

 I am now the executor of my own demise 

How can I live in a world that won’t accept me 

how am I allowed to be anything else but me

How can you lie to me and tell me we live in a perfect world

 while I am the only  one being burned


I tried so hard to be your perfect  doll but instead I sacrificed my soul

I tried so hard to fit in your story but it only fed my agony

I just wanted you to be proud of me but I was only feeding your fantasies 

How can you say I didn’t try hard enough 

while  I am handcuffed


You can’t tell me who I am gonna be 

Because you simply can’t understand me

you don’t know what it is to see your dreams burn in front of your eyes

Don’t you dare feed me any more of your lies

All you did was restrain me 

Instead you could’ve set me free 


My ache won’t go away but for me its a typical Sunday 

You will never understand what I went through because nothing you say is true 


I won’t follow your footsteps anymore

You were like poison injected into my soul

You will never be able to love me

Because you are simply unworthy 


Now I drown my sorrows in a bottle

While your chant me your gospel 

Its not easy to be me 

But at least I am FREE
