Looking back now my reflection seems so lost
Have been this foolish as i always thought?
I should have realized and pushed myself to see, the truth, behind what was happening
was it the fact that i, let you control, me, was the fact that you could blind me
But no longer will i stand by and except this
I don't know what i was thinking
but i know now that i am changing
I'm gonna start thinking for myself
I'm gonna make my own damn mind up
Why did it take me so long to come to terms and learn from the past?
Just because you tell it matters doesn't mean i need to believe that it does
I tried to live by your principles but it felt like i was only taking orders
I tried to live being critical but it felt like i was only loosing myself
