“Change”

Trying to change your skin just so you can fit in.
Shedding away the past; leave it in a heap on the floor,
Because different doesn’t come from dressing up and hoping.

Upend your inner self like you’ll never see it again,
But the magma burns brighter when it erupts from the core.
Trying to change your skin just so you can fit in.

Think the critics won’t notice out their peripheral vision
How you chained up your dragons behind that dungeon door?
Because different doesn’t come from dressing up and hoping.

Your message is manipulated as you bury your essence,
But your lack of dedication is ethically abhorrent.
Trying to change your skin just so you can fit in.

You can’t just pray to your idol and wish for their essence,
Embracing a tiger like you’re in Animorphs,
Because different doesn’t come from dressing up and hoping.

You can present a better self- evolution is a blessing.
Determination of mind makes you stronger than before.
Trying to change your skin just so you can fit in,
But different doesn’t come from dressing up and hoping.
