Spiteful of those who have it all on the surface.
I feel sorry for those who lie just to keep going.
So I guess I’ll turn the mirror on myself.
It seems cool, Life looks good to those who don’t know.
I lie good like a popular kid.
Living, showing two sides like a coin.
They know but some others don’t.
Expecting some Morehouse grad to come through the door.
Yeah and they will forever wait for a fantasy.
A social norm that I can’t follow.
That’s not me.
You think they would notice by the way I dress.
But people block out images they don’t want to believe.
So they ask and I don’t answer.
Am I ashamed? Am I scared?
Maybe more of the latter.
Religious folks they are.
Looking for an answer.
If God doesn’t care, why should they?
It’s that one verse that says otherwise.
I don’t wanna change ‘em.
I just want them to not treat me any different.
So I hold it back but it’s boiling over.
Distant for many reasons.
I hate being under pressure.
