Looking For A Change

I'm not running toward the light

I'm hiding in the dark 

Trying to find a place in this fucked-up life

I'm trying to survive, can you hear my battle cries

They lied saying they would always be by my side

At this point, suicide is changing yourself to be liked 

The rules in this generation is unexpecting

Saying, people like us won't be accepted

Been tryna stand for a change 

But this curse is damaging their brains 

Mentally, Emotionally, and Physically in pain

It's hard trying to be the same
