"Recognition" as written by and Susie Suh....
We are just shadows
Crawling through this micro alley
But I am hungry for your love
And I am starving for a better time

But that’s all we got here
That’s all we know
That’s all we’ve become
Our recognition

Yeah well we be walking in
Some kind of direction
In a line with our right foot first
Yes we’re waiting for some material heaven
That will, that will quench our thirst

But that’s all we got here
That’s all we know
That’s all we’ve become
Our recognition

And I don’t know what to do
About holding my head high
I am struggling to breathe through all these
In between times
And I am wondering why
I am wondering why

And I was born into this place
That filters who we are
By what we have done
Yes I know I am a product of this institution
That’s all I got yeah
That’s all I know
That’s all I’ve become
My recognition oh

And I don’t know what to do
About holding my head high
I am struggling to breathe through all these
In between times
And I am wondering why

I am wondering why

    I don't quite know what this song means completely,
    but that part makes me feel
    like she's saying that people judge you and think
    you're a certain person cause of things you've done.
    Even if they don't know the real you.
    They automatically think you're this
    person cause they've heard things you've done in the past.
    but idk, I could be way off.
    I think this song is amazing though.
    I love susie suh.
    Her voice is amazingggg

    General CommentThe Micro Alley bit sounds wrong...

    I thought she said.
    "Crawling through this mud called our life"

    Absolutely love this song otherwise.
