    I have a sadness that can be seen by everybody. "there's a darkness upon me thats covered in light" you can't be who you want to be because you are expected to conform to society. "in the fine print they tell me whats wrong and whats right. " even though it may not be that way. When you put aside all of those pressures of conforming "when nothing is owed or deserved or expected. And your life... " you can make what is the right choice for you "decide what to be and go be it. "
    your dreams and ambitions are yours to chose and take on. No one should suppress them just because they want to place their opinion or ideas of wrong and right on them.

    I think it has to do with always telling people (especially the younger generation) that they can do whatever they want or be whoever they want to be, but the truth is, most people don't take that advice. Even though a lot of people have the opportunity, (i. E. "a road full of promise"), they don't know what to do with their lives or don't believe in themselves enough to reach their full potential (i. E. "head full of doubt").
