What I'm searching for, to tell it straight I'm trying to build a wall
Walking by myself down avenues that reek of time to kill

If you see me keep going be a pass by waver
Build me up, bring me down, just leave me out you name dropper
Stop trying to catch my eye, I see you good, you forced faker
Just make it easy, you're my enemy, you fast talker

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe
I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe

What am I here for? I left my home to disappear is all
I'm here for myself not to know you, I don't need no one else

Fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later
You don't know me, I am an introvert, an excavator
I'm duckin' out for now, a face in dodgy elevators
Creep up and suddenly I found myself an innovator

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe
I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe

Change, change, change
I want to get up out of my skin
Tell you what if I can shake it
I'ma make this something worth dreaming of

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe
I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe

    Sometimes people don't know what they've got til it's gone. It's a one way train hellbound for anyone foolish enough to get aboard.
