You don't fit in with The Boys
You don't fit in with The Girls
With your polarizing lines
You don't fit into this world
Who are you supposed to be?

Always seen but never heard
Shouted down without a word
Their sick sense is going off
The silent alarm never stops
Who are you supposed to be?

Be yourself they always say
Be yourself and never change
But you know that it's a lie
Be yourself and pay the price
Who are you supposed to be?

These perfect pollyannas always asking
Who are you supposed to be?

With their empty lives and open stares
Tell me who are they supposed to be?
