Who You Are

Dysfunction
Corruption
Consumption
Eruption

The lackluster lifestyles of the world we live in
And all the foolish one’s who seek control
The societal aftermath, always media driven
And the death of what was once a dream of hope

Destruction
Induction
Malfunction
Seduction

In a world that only takes the time to see
The things their eyes can focus on
We live day by day seeking that American dream
The one that says you live your life all wrong
You need to live your life the way they teach
Stay on the path and follow along

Instruction
Deduction
Conjunction
Reduction

Don’t listen to the words society breathes
Don’t let the lies consume your soul
You’re beautiful just being who you’ll be
Not for fitting in the plastic mold
Don’t waste your hate and self esteem
Pretending they’re not digging you a hole
Just trust, and in yourself, believe
The crazy help the world to chance its tone
And when you doubt the things that you can’t see
Just remember that you’re not in this alone

Chase
And brace
The grace
You face
When each new page is turned

Live
Your life
And give
Your time
To trust the life you’ve earned

Dedication
Isolation
Convocation
And sensation

When you finally find yourself
Despite what everyone else said
Then embrace all that you felt
While everyone else plays dead

You have a spark in your eyes
And a fire in your heart
You have the chance to be alive
And to be the person that you are

And we call you to our side
As we welcome you with pride

Originality
Living vitality
In this reality
Of commonality

Just
Be
Who
You
Are
Don’t be anyone else

Just
Be
Who

You
Are
Be true to yourself

You be you
And I’ll be me
And they’ll be them
And we’ll all be
Individual entities
Different, but still equally
Together here in unity
Not driven by conformity

So you
Just
Be
Who
You
Are
We ask for nothing else

Just
Be
Who
You
Are
That’s a blessing in itself

So whatever you face ahead
Remember that in the end
There in the valley of the dead
That the message you will send
Will always be determined
By the life that you have lived
