Born into this mother fucking bigotry Trying to let go of this falsehood liturgy Still can't Yet, I feel like I got a history Trapping my soul in body asymmetry Help me Gotta keep my mind Gotta my head high Gotta keep my eyes wide Brush away everything internalized Bottled up inside Pushing me aside Draining my pride And, I can't decide if wanna live or die Look at my reflection Tryna figure out my intention Do I have one? Do I need one? All I have is tension Keeping me from my own redemption Draining my pent up attention But I'm here and I got none I just wanna run far away where I belong But I'm trapped underneath the surface And I don't deserve this So far away from girlish Perfect When I try to come up to the surface just to take a breath I find myself sinking to depths I never thought that I would ever reach Murky dark water Drag me by the collar So far underwater Quarter kilometer to my early grave And I can't say that I'll make it out sane Every day got me feeling like a living cliché When I fake it all the same every day in every way Wanna take it all away every day in every way When I look into the mirror I see myself so unfamiliar All things considered, I just figured I could beg for your forgiveness Cause I've got this affinity for femininity That you will never take away from me Lizard brain telling me the same phrase every day "Must erase any traces of a past face" I embrace any changes that I might make When I crave to amaze my gaze for my own face I can't keep on trying to be strong for you I cannot keep my head above these rising tides I can't keep on wishing I could show you I cannot keep on drowning in this ocean wide I can't keep on trying to be strong for you I cannot keep my head above these rising tides I can't keep on wishing I could show you I cannot keep on drowning in this ocean wide I can't keep on drowning in this ocean wide I can't keep on drowning in this ocean wide
