Society

about

For anyone who has felt the pressure that society puts on us to be a certain way. To be clear, I don't see myself as seperate from this, I want to get better at perpetuating attitudes that enable flexibility and understanding of people, who they are, what they do etc..

lyrics

What am I doing with my life?
I feel like I should be hitting some kind of mark
The man, the house , the car
But it all feels kinda off

Outside walking the streets at night
Trying to get these fears out of my mind
You don't know what it's like
Trying to please people all the time

I've always done exactly what I'm told
But that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame in on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me

I blame it on Society
I need a break from this anxiety
I just want someone to love me quietly
For who I am for real and not for who I try to be
I blame it on Society

Sittin in a luke warm bath blowin bubbles, thinkin razor thoughts
My body's achin I'm all alone I call you up and I cry for home
But what is Home anymore?
What is this life we're looking for?
I feel I want to make it known that I might disappoint you
And I'm sorry if I do

I've always done exactly what I'm told
but that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame in on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me


I've always done exactly what I'm told
But that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame in on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me

I blame it on Society
I need a break from this anxiety
I just want someone to love me quietly
For who I am for real and not for who I try to be
I blame it on Society
