Face Yourself

Facing again a cold winter ahead
my mind has engaged to an endless chain,
just wanna know where do we go
longing for change, but no one can face it's about to give in exchange.

We claim to be big in an outer space
just wanna know, what has the present for us
no one is up to put their soul on the line
vicious moment where do I sign
to sail from this senseless cold-hearted time.

I bought the idea to be something more,
looking out there for someone to keep me afloat,
while my reflection stands by its own
with the stillness of a stone.

Just wanna know why is so hard
to be who you are,
I want to know why is so hard
to be who you are.

Came to realize; anyone can believe,
some of us choose to get high - others just to hide
underneath, secrets and excuses don't exist
just the courage to say "Here I am. I'm facing myself"
