The Truth is Out There​.​.​. and it Hurts

from by Emo Side Project



i've heard home's where the heart is
but i don't feel welcome in this body
i pick at my skin to try to escape it
but i know that it's pointless

that's okay
i can fake a smile my whole life
make it habit and hobby
become my own enemy
a new day
another way to let down everyone

i've heard the truth is out there
but it hurts when you find it
like i'd sell my soul to a second rate demon
for a chance to feel human

that's all right
i'll just hold my tongue my whole life
proficient passivity
played off as serenity
a new day
another way to let down everyone

wherever i am
whoever i'll be
i'll always carry insecurities with me
