Why no one will help me?
I am too dumb, I am too smart
They'll not understand me
I am lonely, they'll hate me

And there is not enough time
It's too hard to help me
And God wants me to work
No resting, no lazy

These excuses, how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stoic
They've kept me locked in my own cell

I'm too far from home
It takes far too much energy
And I cannot afford to
No one will ever see me

These excuses, how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stoic
They've kept me locked in my own cell

These excuses, how they're so familiar
They've kept me blocked
They've kept me small
They've kept me safe inside my shell

Bringing this into the light shakes their foundation
And it clears my side
Now my imagination is the only thing that limits
The bar that is raised to the heights

No one can have it all see
I have to, they want me to
And I can't let them down
I'll never be happy

These excuses, how they served me so well
They've kept me safe
They've kept me stoic
They've kept me locked in my own cell

These excuses how they're so familiar
They've kept me blocked
They've kept me small
They've kept me safe inside my shell
