Don't believe what they say
Try to go your own way
You would be surprised by the truth

Pull your head out of the sand because it's
Time to be your own man
This is not the time to be couth in your youth

Shrinking Violets are what you are
Wilting flowers afraid of the world
Stand up spread out plant your roots in the ground
Be yourself and bring colors into the world

Don't let another day go by
Looking for an alibi
They don't understand me and you

No need to apologize
For the fire in your eyes
Let it burn all the way through into

Shrinking Violets are what you are
Wilting flowers afraid of the world
Stand up spread out plant your roots in the ground
Be yourself and bring colors into the world

I should know because I've wilted and closed
Now I walk this road with strings and timpani

Put a smile on your face
While you keep a faster pace
Medicate the rest with a pill
Drop that walk away
Find another job today
With whatever passion you will fulfill

Shrinking Violets are what you are
Wilting flowers afraid of the world
Stand up spread out plant your roots in the ground
Be yourself and bring colors into the world
