"Tell Yourself" as written by and Nathan Alan Derby Benjamin William Kotin....
Am I the only one awake?
Am I the only one?
And you’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are, yeah

Well, hey there kid, try not to be so hard on yourself
Did you know you can make your own hell?
And you’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are, yeah

The chatting from outside fades
I guess that means that I’m the only one awake at this hour of the night
Thinking about my own hostility
Am I the only one with all of this running through my head?
And the littlest things affect our lives in ways I can’t understand
I wish that I did
Yeah, I wish that I did
But I’m still eating every word I spoke when I was just a kid

And you’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are, yeah
