Do you know what it’s like?

Putting a mask all the time..

Hiding the volcano away..


Can you understand how it is?

To say the things everyone puts in my mouth

Shovel loads everyday


Can I break from the mould?

Make it out alive

Escape be free?


Can I just run away?

Find myself..

Just somehow be me


Do I have to be the perfect girl?

Poised and voice low

Never doing nothing wrong


Is it okay to rebel

To not go with the flow

To not go along?


Because someday I’ll explode,

Self combust

Burst into flame


And after that

If you ask me to give up

Ill be game.
