New song, this one is a little more personal.
It exposes my past ignorance in regards to my true identity as well as the systemic consequences of displaying myself publicly, which are perpetrated by people who demonstrate that same innocence.

Original guitar sample by Félix Beaudoin from Victims Of Time.

LYRICS
Save me from my mischief
For I have a second belief
A motive for another relief
Misguided without a chief

This world knows how to deceive
But I see what no one will percieve
A reflection I believe
Is it time for me to leave

My ego's the only thing I know
I gotta keep up
And stay in the shadow
Long ago it was the risk I took
My life is made up
For their lack of outlook

They've grown alongside their tease
They all seem to get to you with ease
It's no wonder your faith may decrease
Some even to their own decease

I will both die and grieve
Think of it like Adam and Eve
Trapped in one conflicted body
It's finally her turn to be

My ego is nothing but hollow
Should I keep up
The world is so shallow
All you know's the cover of the book
I'll now open up
For everyone to look

(Born a man)

It's time to break my mold and man it should be easy
Cause there is nothing more fragile than masculinity
You shed blood sweat and tears to stop whoever's like me
'Til we're compelled to live the same but quite literally

You're capable to acknowledge the minority
So set aside your ignorance and show some empathy
To be open isn't a statement made politically
Have you forgot the basic tenets of humanity

Don't you dare to compare
We're just like you, we just want a share
We're defined, we're assigned
Differing makes us the bane of mankind

Cram these lines in your mind
To respect us won't cost you a spine
We're one kind, one bloodline
And I wish we were all colorblind

Your ego will break in half also
The choice to grow up
Belongs to yourself though
I'll be with you when you see what's in store
You'll reap what you sow
Like the skins we all once wore

I feel as though newgrounds lacks music like this, all these gems in amongst the dubstep and hardcore dance.

Damn, thank you so very much... I make music first and foremost for myself, whether it's to soothe my demons or to immortalize my individual progress, and so to be told that such a personal track of mine has its place in this community is absolutely relieving.

From some wholesome French waifu.~ 😊✨
