THE CONFORMIST

Always say yes
Never say no
Forever obey
And never resist
Laugh when they laugh
Ignore it when they harm you
It’s the safer way
That is what taught you me

Living inside a shell
Proclaiming it as I fell
As shelter not as hell
But I don’t dare to yell
Because I detain myself
Nurture took me on this path
Better to hold back the wrath
You cant understand my behaviour?

The two sides of a coin
Decide for a safer life
It’s said the choice is mine
But I won’t try to find
The freedom in my heart
But inside I am caught
From outside there is pressure
It’s tearing me apart

Our fellowship leads the way
We just have to follow
Due to old sins you comply
Drowning here in sorrow
For you were supposed to lead
Obeying orders from another
Can’t you believe we need
No obedient lamb in charge

The two sides of a coin
Decide for a safer life
It’s said the choice is mine
But I won’t try to find
The freedom in my heart
But inside I am caught
From outside there is pressure
It’s tearing me apart

The two sides of a coin
Decide for a safer life
It’s said the choice is mine
But I won’t try to find
The freedom in my heart
But inside I am caught
From outside there is pressure
It’s tearing me apart

Don’t know which side to join
Just try flipping a coin
A conformist to these
For I am doomed to leave
No freedom in my heart
My body gets cold
Inside I feel the pressure
It’s tearing me…apart
