Why can't be people be themselves
Instead of trying to act like everyone else
Don't the know how decieving it is to be a fake
And look at all the mistakes they will make

Why can't they buy clothes that makes them comfortable
Instead of buying real high price clothes they put them in debt
Clothes don't really matter anyhow
As long as they are clean and makes you feel all right

Why do they wanna act like they dont know anything
When they know they could get better grades
And they could try so much harder
And be one of the smartest people alive

Why do they wanna act real mean and stuck up there nose
When really they wanna say hello
And then they smoke
But inside there mind is thinking no

Why can't they be themselves
It would be so much easier for everybody else
This world would be a lot better place
And i know you would make alot less mistakes
