lyrics

MICROSCOPE

you squint your eye
i'm under your microscope
i'm on a slide
i'm outside your velvet rope

i'm waiting to be let in
i'm waiting to be let in
i'm waiting to be let in

i'm trying to be myself
let you study the real me
but i can't help self-censoring
i'm a living apology

i'm trying to be myself
i just wanna be myself
why is it so hard to be myself with you?

with you
and your objective eye
sizing me up and down
constantly analyzed
i'm trying to be myself
i just wanna be myself
i don't wanna hide
i don't wanna hide

what do you see?
wish i could see what you see

what i hide
i'm on a slide
a living mystery
a self apology
