Favorite Lyrics:

I don't know my name. I don't play by the rules of the game.
But your words don't hurt me. I will be okay. 'Cause you don't hurt me. I won't mold to your silly words. I won't live inside your world. 'Cause your punches and your names. All your jokes and stupid games. They don't work. No, they don't hurt. Watch them just go right through me. Because they mean nothing to me. I'm not clay.
You're my other half. You're what makes me me. What makes me smile. When I fall down and can't get back, get back, get back on my feet.
Now she's lost her way and she forgets to smile. Never gets a break from this life in denial. A doll made out of glass. All her friends think that she's great. But I can see through it all and she's about to break.
I'm sick of being told of what I should know. I just wanna let go. I wanna run away just to live my life my way.
I wish I could get you out of my mind. But I think about it all the time. And I wish I could not think for once in my life. But when I see your face. I can't escape my mind.
Just close your eyes and create yourself a better life. Let the wind blow through your hair. Let the music take you there. And make a better life.
The rumble of voices are the bass to our song. The horns are just on the beat honkin' along. Let's be the harmony but no note is wrong. And let's take the city and make it our song.
Every now and then the darkness tries to chase me. And my legs are getting tired of running. Please don't, please don't let it get to me. I don't want to give up that easily. But the darkness keeps chasing me.
