Can’t Escape

Watch out! Help me! Media’s taking over my life.

Not a day passes by with no struggle or strife.

Trying so hard to be me,

But I get so confused by all the images on the TV

Those narratives, they’re not always true.

   

It’s time to stop faking and try to be you.

The pressures taking over, don’t know how long I’ll last

Better get my act together, quicker, fast

Hopefully some day I’ll be free from this cage

But until then I’ll keep on fighting with all my rage.
