Happiness isn't made for me

When every decision I make is second guessed at every turn
When I can't say all that I need to say
And be all that I need to be
When my parachute is shot down every time I fly to my dreams
Simply because I don't dream what other kids dream
Then happiness isn't made for me
If I have to tie myself to a book
And live according to some believe
If I have to meet a certain criteria to belong in society
Walk a certain way, act a certain way
To best fit the society
Briefcase and ties
Heterosexual marriages and all the government laws
Then happiness isn't made for me
If I'm labelled for the loud music I listen
If I'm to be criticized for the dark clothes that I wear
Not given any breathing room to be who I'm
Then happiness isn't made for me
In fact happiness isn't made for any of us
Because we're all just living a lie
