Stand Out


Everywhere we turn it’s all the same
People living here without a name
Unknown—indifferent, just a lonely soul
Trekking through the world along with the whole
A single soul in a crowded street
Billions of people never to meet
A huddled mass moving without a beat
Standing out is such a difficult feat

You’re walking with the huddled masses
Which are moving just like molasses
Move On
You scream your name up to the sky
An voice answers your desperate cry

I really don’t means to pout
All I want is to Stand Out
But I don’t know how to break free
From the huddled masses of humanity

Lonely people
Lonely lines
Forgotten faces
Forgotten times

Is what I want so much?
Freedom from the masses and such
Must I stay trapped with humanity?
Is there anyway I could break free?

Look inside to where all hides
And there is all you need
Discover yourself. Be nobody else
And then you can finally be free

Inside and Out we must Stand Out
Body and soul it’s all the same
You must shed all of your doubts
If you want to live beyond a name
You can walk in the crowd and be alone
But uniqueness will not be your own
You must stand tall and use your clout
Or else you will never Stand Out
