To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.


Why can't you feel the bricks
that pull me down
breaking my back until I drown

Into the sea of guilt I've built for me
Why can't you see me wearing thin
ready to snap, a thread of silk
knowing I'll never win

Why is my guilt invisible to you
why aren't you pointing fingers at me too
Sentence me is all I plead
I cannot keep this wondering
of what you think

Why can't you see my bloody heart
as it struggles on in vain
why can't you see my conscience
choking with the strain

I scream to you as I break
I've ruined life for my own sake
why don't you care
I cannot bear
to not be blamed by you

Why can't you see what I have done
it's me, it's me, it's me
just blame me
than I could rest in peace
