lyrics

Staring out my window, watching clouds pass by
In these situations I feel like my life's a movie
Add some dramatic background music,
a breeze running through my hair, and we're all set.
How does it end? I haven't gotten there yet.

So many metaphors running through my brain
Highways, chocolate, lemonade, but life's really just insane
There's no prescription for awkwardness, no pill for being weird
Funny how in this day and age, we want our quirks to disappear

But I refuse to blend in with the majority
I refuse to be stripped of my dignity
I refuse to be a heartbroken mess
You will never see me be a damsel in distress

You don't know how it feels to be stuck in the middle of a hurricane
Well I don't either, but does that make us the same?
You're the sidewalk, I'm the chalk
and sometimes we both get stepped on, but
only one of us gets picked up off the ground, cause

I refuse to blend in with the majority
I refuse to be stripped of my dignity
I, I refuse to be a heartbroken mess
You will never see me be a damsel in distress

Same chords, different verses, isn't that just how life goes?
Never learning, never breaking free
It's time to find some education, pick ourselves up off the ground
And find our own melody

I refuse to blend in with the majority
I refuse to be stripped of my dignity
I, I refuse to be a heartbroken mess
You will never see me be a damsel in distress, no.
