My heart beats painfully to hide
The questions rising deep inside
They say that life is a ride
But I feel like I’m against the tide
Take away the brains and the facade
All I’ll ever be in scarred
Feeling suffocated by expectations high
I’ve forgotten, tell me who am I?
Cheating the world with a smile on my face
Paying the price for all my mistakes
Been taught there’s no point in getting second place
Leave me alone, I’m not part of this race.
All I want is some clarity
An escape from this reality
And the many memories nestled deep
Are all the secrets that I keep.
