How often do you conform

To all the social norms

Wishing for something more

Than the rules that you abhor

Believing there’s a life of endless possibility

To alleviate all the hostility

That screams inside your mind

How could you have been so blind

To play into their foolish game

And assign them the blame

When in truth it’s in your hands

To choose to take a stand

And apologize for your naivety

Of thinking that conformity

Was the only way to play

For becoming society’s prey

You know there’s another way

And that you must start today

To live your life as you desire

For it’s you that has the power

To break free from society’s chains

Of conformity and inner pain
