Well, you took a few grey lines from somebody else
And rearranged and kept them for yourself
You think had the right to claim it as your own
So, call yourself an outlaw
With the spurs in your step, and the pistol in your hands
Tell the sherriff in town that you're above the law
(You're above them all)

But to bend the rules of one world
Is to follow the rules of another
And that's where colors will fade from your charade
Cause the winds, they blew in from the east
And stripped you bare to your insecurities
Now everyone sees you for what you are

And these cowboys will ride out in the desert sun
Off to prove their worth to everyone
Losing sight of what's important through the dust in their eyes
All the while they never realized they were living a lie
Yeah, it took so long to realize you were living a lie

When you conform to nonconformity
Unique becomes a fashion statement
You walk into the realm of the very thing you were trying to escape
"This town ain't big enough for the two of us"
Everyone's putting up charades, one trend at a time
Really, you're unique... just like everyone else.

And like cowboys we rode out in the desert sun
Off to prove our worth to everyone
Losing sight of what's important through the dust in our eyes
All the while we never realized
We were living a lie
