A Deer Mistaking Candles For Headlights

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
You can call me a coward and you'd be correct
Oh, my neck is safely off the line now
I'm keeping my mouth shut until this is over
Why bother speaking my mind?
You can call me a liar and that would be true
Though I do disagree, I don't challenge you
I am docile and lazy, I show no respect
You can call me a coward and you'd be correct

[Verse 2]
Does the blank stare scare you more than the frown?
Am I the reason that you feel down?
Distant but rational, bringer of rage
To get to a level where I will engage
I am a tentacle, incapacitated obstacle
I am obsolete and apathetic, thoughtlessly apologetic
Watch my actions, or lack thereof
Negate the person that I said I was
[Verse 3]
You could call me a phony and I would agree
Oh, I see the many versions of me that I perform
Moulded to suit
I know the real me just convolutes

[Outro]
You see who I am and that scares me
You see who I am and that's scary
