I want to start a revolution
How many times have you been told
You aren’t good enough?
You're too fat to thin not tall enough
You are wrong, I cannot even say how many times I have heard this They cast us out to stumble along our Poorly lit paths unable to see through their Words of blind hate they call us blind and wrong But they are the ones who do not under stand
I call you to rise up with me against the strains of Conformity I call you to rise Our voices our weapons Our very souls blessed to be our armor We are warriors We are true warriors The weird the Outcasts The strange I call you to a movement
I am here to start a revolution
No longer do we slave away
Too the pre-conformed Ideas of beauty
No longer do we simply accept what we are told I call you to rise they cast us out thinking to weaken us
The Unique the Strange the truly beutiful I call you to arms raise up! against them We rise up against the Chains cast on to us by the world
We find the beauty in the soul not on the face I call you to war, Our only battle scars?
From not being able to love ourselves before this war I call you to rise Pick up your swords Join the Fight against the conform Join me in the revolution!
