They put on disguises today
To hide the scarlet letters
That each of us has put so far away

In this which trial
Modern day

Despite this it seems that the powers be
Have decided who I am
And who I will be

Who I am who I'll be
Has been decided for me
And they don't even know me

As they pounded in the stake
I thought I heard them say
"Become like us or you will be slain"

You can't tell me who I am.

    General CommentAlrighty if anyone has been following my posts, this is going with the idea that the Truthless Heroes cd is a story...

    Stan(our 'truthless hero') has been through middle and highschool(Little Green Men and Know what it means) Now he has entered.. college.

    And he really feels the pressure of his teachs, family and peers.
    "Who I am
    Who I'll be
    Has been decided for me
    But they don't even know me"

    He is being pushed towards a carreer, that he isn't really intrested in, we'll say they are trying to make him a musician.
    He tries to fight back, becomes a rebel.
    But the head of the college(maybe even his parents) pretty much tell him that if he doesn't go this way with his life, he'll never be good enough for anything, or anyone.
    "And as they pounded in the stake
    I thought I heard them say
    "Become like us or you will be slain" "
