Save Yourself

from Here I Am by Ross Mayhew



you think you know me because i'm courteous and polite
because i try my best to keep this train running right
i ain't doing it for you, your platform is coming up soon
none of the the words you say are worth their weight in gold

i'm beginning to wonder if you've really thought this through
is this what's best for them, or is it what's best for you
my soul is protected and nobody's touching it
sometimes we lose our way but i hope you'll be back again

to be honest i don't care about your niches or your kicks
nobody is the same and i'm not trying to fit
the world can learn to take me as i am
you'll only know what you're able to see

well i've played the game for as long as i can
i am stepping back, gonna redraw the map
whoever said a journey was a straight road
there are so many diversions and i'm making my own

i saw through the devil and i saw through god
i see through the mask you hope won't fall off
because when it does your soul will be there for all to see
then you're alone with no idea of who you're meant to be

it's just not about them any more
it's about your ego, getting your foot in the door
you drift in and out like the changing of the tide
you focused on the sun, ignored the stars that shine
