As I step outside
I feel the sunlight
Pressing heavily against my face
People think my life is in question
Like puzzle pieces out of place
As I walk around town
I get cold shoulders
And turned backs
To everyone I meet
My skin is stripped away
And I watch pedestrians
Walk across my ashes
Scattered in the street
It is a lonely feeling
To be an individual
Fighting against a team
This is what I have chosen
It is all of this and more
To chase and capture a dream
The long road
Has put a hard shine on my soul
Even stars fall from the sky
So a new one can glow
Everyone has bought tickets to see my demise
Just like a flower
I started from the ground
But soon I will rise
