August Burns Red — Identity lyrics

Do you know how it feels to hide
With thoughts repressed deep down inside?
I guess you just loved the lie.
Truth is, you can’t decide where my heart resides.

You want to cure me of this epidemic, you call me sick.
I wish I had said it, the words to admit to you who I am.
My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand
And cast aside from the man that I am.

I’ve never felt so free.
It kills me to hear you say you “choose to love me.”
I was hoping that would be a given, given our history.
I’ve never felt so free, so free

You think I’m wrong, you think I’m wrong
But I never felt better.

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.
I thought blood was thicker than water.
You think I’m wrong but I never felt better.
You think I’m wrong but I never felt better.

I know I disappointed you,
But I’ve got nothing to prove.

You want to cure me of this epidemic, you call me sick.
I wish I had said it, the words to admit to you who I am.
My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand,
But now I’ve realized this is who I am.
I’ve made my decision, you’re either with or against me.

You’re either with or against me.
You’re either with or against me.

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.
I thought blood was thicker than water.
You think I’m wrong but I never felt better.

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.

I’m standing firm. It’s who I am.
You can’t keep me, you can’t keep me down.
Iʼm moving on. I’m living free.
You canʼt stop me, you canʼt stop me now.
You canʼt stop me, you canʼt stop me now.
