lyrics

(chorus- Wiseone)
Why do I hide inside myself, trying to survive as somebody else, why do I hide as somebody else, trying to survive inside myself, lying as somebody else

(refrain-Bari)
never wanted to be myself, want to be somebody else, want to be free from this world of misery inside myself, never wanted to be myself, want to be somebody else, want to be free from this world of misery inside myself

(verse 1 Bari)
I need validation, fake smiles and salutations, from a crowd of clowns and haters, so called thugs, rich kids on drugs, beautiful girls, that’ll give more hugs when they see me in the club and I really need the love, from the ni**as with cash, I’m addicted to swag, so give me that bag fresh kicks sunglasses, give me my friends all of them dumb a**es, give me new trends let me follow the fashion, and loose ends to spend on madness, f**k school, f**k classes, f**k a bachelors, all I need is a bad chick, a Belizean actress laying with me on the mattress, saying something sweet in Spanish as I proceed to smash it, damn that sounds so attractive man,
my fakest friends dap my hand, girls coming over that’s the plan, who’s that dude oh that’s her man well if he’s acting up we’ll pack the van with gats from Iraq and Pakistan but damn I’m lying, I’m trying hard to seem so hard and defiant, I’m a lion, I’m a tiger, I’m a fighter, I’m a man with a head full of fire, more power is what I desire man,
yea give me that cash, girl give me that a** and give me that weed, that’s what I need to feel like a man, damn

(chorus- Wiseone)
Why do I hide inside myself, trying to survive as somebody else, why do I hide as somebody else, trying to survive inside myself, lying as somebody else

(bridge- Wiseone and Danny G)
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else

(verse 2 Bari)
I need validation, from the crowds of the foulest nation, give me sounds to endow this wasteland, as I drown in smiles of faces, from thousands of fans, all cheering from the stands, it’s apparent I’m the man so show me that love, let the sky touch your hands,
as you buy into my brand lil Stans, so give me new fans I influence the masses, give me new benz and a new huge mansion, give me new friends as I reach a new status, news stand crew with the cameras flashing, and a bad bi**ch preferably a model/actress fondled on my mattress, bottles of Moscato as I wallow in the madness, all this comes from following my passion, pursuing dreams or delusions schemes, to keep the youth trapped in this foolish routine, human machines that’s what we are, trapped in facades, bandaged scars of wounds that never healed the tomb’s forever sealed, am I so afraid of losing my appeal that I do sh*t that’s cool,
rather than what’s real, keep my brain caged in a frame made of steal, nah f**k that never, I’m a break free to achieve my endeavors, I’m a take heed, take lead and be better, at just being me, just being free, demons go away, I hope my soul is saved, I hope I float away and reach the golden gates, achieve the goals I made, no I never break and I pray I never have to say

(chorus- Chelsea Monae)
Why do I hide inside myself, trying to survive as somebody else, I’ll never hide as somebody else, trying to survive inside myself, lying as somebody else
