Twist yourself to fit the mold
Of the conventionally rebellious and the appropriately bold?
Have you heard them tell you
To do as the Romans do?
That being Other, being different, is taboo?
Wouldn't you rather be a mutation?
A freak, an aberration?
A ripple in this eerily calm ocean
Of conformity and uniformity
Whose waves of monotony
Will lull you to a slumber of comfortable apathy?
Wake up! Rise!
Don't be so easily satisfied!
Distracted by the self-serving lies
Of those too afraid, too comfortable
To permit change that might make unstable
The very foundations of their power, their labels
And change the world as they know it.
Say there's a different way, and show it!
You have one chance, one life: don't blow it.
