I don't know
The words to say
In honesty; I'm afraid
Of all the staring faces
And now I'm trapped in this place
Is this just a phase,
Or will it always be this way?
Maybe someday
I'll own up to my mistakes

I lock up my thoughts
From those with sincere hearts
I've kept it safe
And now I'm trapped in this place
Torn apart
Ripped at the seams
I'm scared of every word I've said
Will anyone care for the verses I've bled?

How could I be that person?
The person I swore I'd never be
How could I be
What I swore I'd never be

I've never felt so contrived
Coming up with words that were never mine
But who's to say I've never felt anything?
Born to this earth without a face or voice
And though my attempt might be flawed
I promise it's not hollow

Let it echo
Like a chorus line
Its our time to shine
Raise your voice with me;
I'll grow
I'll rise
I'll live my life
I'll raise my voice

I will never be that person
The person I swore you'd never see
I'll uphold my beliefs
And I'll say

Fuck this place
I'm still afraid
But I won't let this fear
Control me
