child inside lyrics – anacrusis

you wear
like an enemy
a false sense of security
with your bullsh*t integrity
you’d lose it all for your dignity

and you tell yourself “you’re so brave”
yeah, fight for yours until your dead
well there’s plenty of that already filling holes
before you use your fists, why don’t you use your head?
sometimes we’re overcome by this child inside
we grow, and never grow inside

well i play games i don’t see
accepting false hospitality
with kind words you disguise deceit
yeah, i help you and you screw me

and somehow you think you fool someone
surely someday this mask will fall
you find a strength in one on one
but there’s something real in all for all

sometimes we’re overcome why the child inside
we grow, and never grow inside

and you tell yourself “you’re so brave”
yeah, fight for yours until your dead
well there’s plenty of that already filling holes
before you use your fists, why don’t you use your head?
sometimes we’re overcome by this child inside
we grow, and never grow inside
