So you feel like life isn't fair, but are you surprised?
Did you get caught up in social media and it's lies?
Every profile portrays that they don't need grace,
But their mask is a disguise.
She went to brunch, prayed and had fun
He's with his bros, camping in the sun
You're in your room, wondering when you'll be the one
The one with the friends
The one with who keeps up with the trends
The one who blends
in with the rest.
But we're all a mess
So full of worry and stress
It's just that we can't confess
That our lives are less than the best
Because the moment we fall
And show that we don't have it all
Is the moment we're real,
And you can see all our flaws.
That's when we're less than a ten.
After brunch she still feels broken and alone,
she longs for the connection to last
for it to not slip into the past
so she posts the memory on her phone.
After camping he struggles to climb the next mountain,
to complete all the tasks on his plate
but he's bending and breaking under the weight
of the tasks that fly at him from a bottomless fountain.
Life isn't fair and it never will be,
You can care or you can set yourself free.
Let go of the image when you're with your friends
Let them in on your struggles and learn to depend
On the wisdom of others,
Their strength and their care,
Because when you do life will seem a little more fair.
Life is fair because it's unfair to everyone
We've all tripped up and come a little undone
And when we slip off the mask
Is when we can step up to the task
Of building friendships
Instead of gaining followers.
