All I want is a life that is mine
But everyone else has got their chains on me and it is now intertwined
All I want is to chase my goals and build my dreams
But these people have their hooks in me and are pulling by the seams
If I die like this my stone would read:
"Here lies a man who was there for others but never for him."
I keep trying and trying to do my thing.
But they keep tugging and tugging and they pull me back in.
My head's a mess my brain is fogged up.
And my body is stressed, it's draining of blood
My eyes are cloudy from all of their demands.
My vision is blurry I don't see where it ends.
And I try to speak: I'm weak, I can't stand!
But they tell me: "Do it, you see you're a man!"
This life's a lie, it's not true to me.
I'd only became what you want me to be.
