What they say, what they say, what they say
What they say, what they say, what they say

You speak out all you feel is defiance
All you need is some self-reliance
Cause this world is gonna always try us

And all you wanted was to run for cover
Well here's looking to yourself and no other
We're all searching for that special something
And we keep on running

We all have the choice to take the lead or follow
I want to feel the light shine on me

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay you'll soon get strong enough

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
You're going to break so please don't do it

You wanna spread your wings but you're not sure
Don't wanna leave your comforts, wanna find a cure
We're afraid of who we see in the mirror
We wanna let go but it feels too pure

Who wants to be alone in this world?
You look around and all you see is hurt
But the light it always finds us
If we move with a little trust

We all have the choice to take the lead or follow
I want to feel the light shine on me

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay you'll soon get strong enough

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
You're going to break so please don't do it

A diamond don't define what shine is
I don't need a Rolex to know what the time is
You got yours let me find what mines is
I'm a survivor look how strong my mind is

I stand on my own it's all me
Regardless of whatever they call me
I'm a leader not a follower
And I'd rather be paid and popular
Ride homie, get your dollars up
We're in the belly of the beast that already swallowed us

It's the end of the world and we know it
It's the end of the world
And we know it

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay you'll soon get strong enough

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
You're going to break so please don't do it

So afraid of what people might say
So afraid of what people might say
So afraid of what people might say
So afraid of what people might say

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay you'll soon get strong enough

So afraid of what people might say
But that's okay cause you're only human
So afraid of what people might say
You're going to break so please don't do it
