What they say, what they say, what they say
What they say, what they say, what they say

You speak out, all you feel is defiance
All you need is some self-reliance
'Cause this world is gonna always try us
And all you wanted was to run for cover
Well, here's looking to yourself and no other
We're all searching for that special something
And we keep on running

We all have the choice to take the lead or follow
I want to feel the light shine on me

[Chorus]
You're so afraid of what people might say
But that's okay 'cause you're only human
You're so afraid of what people might say
But that's okay, you'll soon get strong enough
You're so afraid of what people might say
But that's okay 'cause you're only human
You're so afraid of what people might say
You're going to break
So please don't do it

You wanna spread your wings, but you're not sure
Don't wanna leave your comforts
Wanna find a cure
We're afraid of who we see in the mirror
We wanna let got but it feels too pure
Who wants to be alone in this world?
You look around and all you see is hurt
But the light - it always guides us
If we move with a little trust

We all have the choice to take the lead or follow
I want to feel the light shine on me

[Chorus]

A diamond don't define what shine is
I don't need a Rolex to know what the time is
You got yours; let me find what mine is
I'm a survivor; look how strong my mind is
I stand on my own; it's all me
Regardless of whatever they call me

I'm a leader, not a follower
And I'd rather be paid and popular
Ride, homey, get your dollars up
We´re in the belly of the beast that already swallowed us

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it

[Chorus]
