You can take
All the things you think I need
All I wear upon my sleeve
All the ways that you perceive
I no longer need it

I know what it means
In black and white
God wanted me
And that's why...

You leave me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left
Just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test
Just take a breath

And me
I just take things as they come
I stick around until it's done
And I'm not your chosen one
But can you admit it?

I know what it means
In black and white
God wanted me
And that's why...

You leave me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left
Just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test
Just take a breath

(Solo)

You can take
All the things you think I need
All the ways that you

You leave me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left
I just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test
Just take a breath

I know what it means!
In black and white
I know what it means!
