As I walk to school
I put on the mask that covers who I really am
Everyone of my friends think I'm just a girl
to cool for school
But that isn't true, that isn't the real me.
No the real me is a girl striving to go to college
To not be the stereotype that people label us to be.
Just because I live in the ghetto
Doesn't mean I can't talk proper
It doesn't mean I'm going to get pregnant at 15
I can talk as ghetto as I fucking want to
But the truth is I'm not like that
My friends and family think I only like boys
Yeah, boys are cool
But the truth is behind this curtain, I like girls too
But I can't go on saying that
Since to them that's just weird or disgusting
I can't come out from behind the curtain of the stage
I have stage fright, I'm scared
of what they'll all think of me
Will they judge me or will they accept me.
I'm tired of hiding behind a curtain and behind a mask
I'm tired of it all
I just want to come out and scream
THIS ISN'T THE TRUE ME!
