    Insert Title Here

    There are the thoughts in my head and then the things that I've said
    Each its own entity struggling inside me
    One always wins while the other takes the loser seat labeled as sin
    And this is where the confusion begins

    I don't know when
    But somewhere along the line I lost that title called mine
    Who I was and who I would be became who I wasn't and who I shouldn't be
    All because of the way everyone looked at me

    I didn't fit into their boxes and so I was dropped into a bag titled losses
    They tied it up real tight and no matter how strong I desired the fight
    I just couldn't breathe
    And so this the knowledge I learned to retrieve

    Keep a smile on your face
    your wit in its place
    keep the nightmares at bay
    and in society you can stay

    Because when you're called an outcast
    there's an assumption you won't really last
    you can only look in on heaven
    from behind a very thick glass

    So there are the thoughts in my head
    which are nothing like the things I've said
    For I understand that all life's a stage and no matter how we age
    people just want the parade of the masquerade
