books and covers and pigeon holes
walk in the door ears burning already in a box - wheels turning
pre-conceived notions and quiet whispers

judge me on what I say
judge me on my everyday
judge me on yesterday
calendar day clich

mohawks and dyes - nothing but lies
i don't wear dickies nor have any piercings
and i even forgot what emo meant
what it was and what it is
and how it defines the giver and the gift

i'll never be your
i even forgot what emo meant what it was and what it is
and how it defines the giver

    General CommentI think it's about being yourself for who you are and people questioning it, but you just push all the hatred aside.

    General CommentThis song is about people making opinions about others based merely on their aesthetic qualities. They say, "mohawks and dyes - nothing but lies" to illustrate that the way someone looks does not define who they are.
    "pre-conceived notions and quiet whispers" further shows that people are devising their opinions of someone based on the stereotype(pre-conceived notions) that person seems to align with.
