Being Different Is So Cool

2002

Lyrics

Prejudice reveals in all it's glory
When you go outside you'll hear the marshmallow cry
Just like you, the masses always bore me
Try to make a difference but it's hard to get by
How would you feel when you're all alone
Out on your own and nowhere to belong

There's a rape going on down in broad daylight
Everyone's on the streets messing with your mind
Don't me mad, don't be sad
Baby don't be a fool
Being different is so cool

Racism is not a different story
Yes it's my own choice, but must I kill myself inside?
Turning heads and doors will close before me
Thousand of rejections make it hard to get by
Where would we be when we're all the same
Nothing to lose no, and nothing to gain

There's a rape going on down in broad daylight
Everyone's on the streets messing with your mind
Don't me mad, don't be sad
Baby don't be a fool
Being different is so cool

Dreaming of awakenings in a different light
Take me back to childhood, wash the sand out of my eyes
Aaaaah, find a reason
Take me to the river where the water makes you young and wise
Give it to me, just a song for the world
Give me a reason to live, to be heard
But who will be there to see
Who will be there to feel
No one ever listen in this merry-go-round

There's a rape going on down in broad daylight
Everyone's on the streets messing with your mind
Don't me mad, don't be sad
Baby don't be a fool
Being different is so cool
