lyrics

My father taught me, he taught me racist and homophobic views that I never knew would impact me so greatly.
My father taught me, he taught stay in school and follow the rest, secure your place in a hollow life and lonely death.

As a child, our minds so fragile. Influenced and exposed to the paths our parents chose are we destined to follow them too?
Now we're older, and it's time to think for ourselves. Should I feel this guilty? I'm going to let you down.

I just wanted to make you happy.
Will I ever make you proud?

I'm so sorry dad, but I'm never going to be the man you wanted me to be.
And I love you dad, but I'm quite content standing on this stage and being able to just be me, to feel free.

A plea, a path, a purpose, a place. My heart, my soul, my mind, it aches.
I've found what i love it won't go to waste. I refuse to go back and find all steps to trace.
A plea, a path, a purpose, a place. My heart, my soul, my mind, it aches.
This is my life, I'll do whatever it takes.
I'm in control, this is my choice to make.

As a child, our minds so fragile. Influenced by our parents their morals their lives, infest in our brains and remain in our minds.
Now we're older, and it's time to think for ourselves.
Don't let them consume or control what you do. Your life's not for them, your life is for you.

You can stand on your own two feet.

Brainwashed.
Do not be silent.
Brainwashed.
Keep on fighting.

You can stand on your own two feet.

I just wanted to make you happy.
Will I ever make you proud?
