I don’t want to be like you,
You’re not the type I could be,
I’d rather look somewhere else,
How about starting with myself?
Too long since I thought about laughter,
I’m not afraid, I just want to know,
Before things become rough,
And I don’t want to be pulled in,
I want to be alone, honestly.
Belonging, it’s a dangerous thing.
These people around me,
So crazy and deluded,
Conceited and stupid,
All they ever think about is themselves.
You scare me, because I fear,
The person you’ll become when,
You reach the height of your life.
Me, I’ll always be in the shadows,
That way, I know that I’m protected,
In ways that I’m immensely grateful of.
