it lies in man’s nature to blend in
uniformity clouds our eyes
when outcasts are looked upon with a closed mind
a lonely flower doesn’t envy the thorns who are numerous
stand up and fight
even when standing for what you believe means standing alone
most of us will be forgotten having no one know their names
but no legacy is as great as sincerity
I see a weakness in your urge for glory
you keep changing face but real recognize real
so many have come and gone
another day another face but real recognize real
