Project 86 Set Me Up

Right in front of me
Dropping another game (NOW)
I watch your face as your eyes
Look down away from my glance
Backstabbed as I hear the crack drop smack
I count the ways your little whispers swell to greet my daze
Underground, so down, your scene above me
So eager to put yourself above me
But now I see so cleary
I'm not down, I never could be
And its long past time for me to show you

Speak my mind in response to your condescending way
Of placing me below your feet
Its not what you know
Its who you know
And all I know now is you live for the show
Smiles in my face with smirks in your eyes
And I understand what it means to be
"Light" in your eyes, not I
Nor none of my attempts to be on the inside
I'm not down, I never could be
And its long past time for me to show you

Set Me Up
Knocked down
Knocked down from your clique, you
Understand how you rejected me
I look at your face and I weep for your scene

So I ask myself what needs to be said
What now, What light can I shed
Its a battle to fight off the angry thoughts
That runnin to escape my head, so
Its plain as day as you can see
But i dont' have the right to explain myself to you
So dont' look away, or turn away, or laugh away
Cause your "scene" is dead today

We can't bring ourselves back down to this level
Your no better than me
Down with all that took us away from standing as one
And living as one
Am I, so different from you that you cannot dispel with your
status and look in my face
Am I, so separate that I cannot break free from this stereotype today
Am I, so distant from you that you cannot regard me as equal
and clean this stain
