Dark Ballet

  • It's a beautiful life, but I'm not concerned
    It's a beautiful dream, but a dream is earned
    I can dress like a boy, I can dress like a girl
    Keep your beautiful words, 'cause I'm not concerned

    'Cause your world is such a shame
    'Cause your world's obsessed with fame
    'Cause your world's in so much pain
    'Cause your world is
    'Cause your world is
    Up in flames

    It's a beautiful plan (hmm), but I'm not concerned (oh yeah)
    It's a beautiful game (hmm) that I never learned
    People tell me to shut my mouth (shut your mouth)
    That I might get burned
    Keep your beautiful lies (hmm) 'cause I'm not concerned

    'Cause your world is such a shame
    'Cause your world's obsessed with fame
    'Cause your world's in so much pain
    'Cause your world is
    'Cause your world is

    I will not denounce the things that I have said
    I will not renounce my faith in my sweet Lord
    He has chosen me to fight against the English
    I am not afraid at all to die 'cause I believe you
    God is on my side and I'll be fine
    I am not afraid 'cause I have faith in him
    You can cut my hair and throw me in a jail cell
    Say that I'm a witch and burn me at the stake
    It's all a big mistake
    Don't you know to doubt him is a sin?
    I won't give in

    They are so naive
    They think we are not aware of their crimes
    We know, but we are just not ready to act
    The storm isn't in the air, it's inside of us
    I want to tell you about love and loneliness
    But it's getting late now
    Can't you hear outside of your Supreme hoodie, the wind that's beginning to howl?
