IM NOT THE SAME

by BRETT LAWTON
(RIVERSIDE,CA,USA)

I FIGHT FOR THE NAME, FIGHT FOR THE GAME;
FIGHT FOR EVERYTHING THAT PEOPLE HOLD SO DEARLY IN THEIR HEARTS
THAT THEY CANT SAY TO THOSE THAT LABEL THEM AS THE SAME,
BUT IM NOT THE SAME.

AND IN THIS GAME AM I THE ONE WHOS NAME IS SPLATTERED ON THE WALL IN SHAME,
NO, NO IM NOT THE SAME MY NAME WILL RISE FROM THOSE FLAMES AND SHINE
ABOVE ALL FOR ALL THOSE WHO FEEL THE SAME.
IM NOT THE SAME.

I FIGHT THROUGH PAIN, THE STRUGGLES, THE TRAGEDIES,
THE COWARDESS THAT HIDES INSIDE; THAT TRIES TO BLIND HIMSELF
FROM ALL THE HATRED THAT HAS BEEN THROWN AROUND BACK AND FORTH AT HIM,
FOR THE BLAME THAT HE CANT GET AWAY FROM.
I FIGHT BECAUSE IM NOT THE SAME

I FIGHT TO CHANGE THE VIEW
OF ALL THOSE HYPOCRITICAL MINDSETS THAT CANT STAND UP
AND CHANGE THIS MESSED UP CYCLE THAT REPEATS ITS SELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN
IM NOT THE SAME TO SIT AND TAKE THE REPEATED FIRE OF AN ENDLESS MACHINE GUN OF BLAME
I FIGHT FOR THE GLORY AND HONOR
FIGHT FOR THE FOR WORRY FREE SMILES THAT HAVE BEEN LOST SOO LONG AGO
I FIGHT FOR THIS GAME AND THE NAME
BECAUSE IM NOT THE SAME
