I Am An Outsider

  • I'm on the outside looking through
    I know I'm not the same as you
    I'd rather be faceless than ignored
    Than be in the in-crowd test before
    A way to fit in just a little more

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now

    I don't wanna be any part of your scene
    I don't believe in what you believe
    I'd rather be faceless in the dark
    Than be so fake like the way you are
    Yeah that's why I stay so far away from you

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now

    There comes a time we draw the line
    Decide we're better off on the outside
    There comes a time we draw the line
    Decide we're better off on the outside

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now
