Underneath the flesh

Underneath the flesh
Beyond the superficial things
Trying to past the test
That society often brings
Whats a person to do
Underneath so much pressure
Trying to make it through
Wanting to please others
So I pretend to be oblivious of who I am inside
Feeling so smothered
No backbone, no pride
How could I be myself
When conformity is so simple
To hell with my happiness
No smiles, no dimples
Who is the real you might you ask
Im afraid I dont know
Hiding behind a mask
The real me is hard to show
When will come the day
That I can pass this stupid test
Sadly to my dismay
The way I feel inside will always reamin underneath the flesh
