“Tell us where you’re from 
What you want to become 
And we’ll say if you’re ok 

Where did you go to school? 
Right answer and you’re cool 
Yeah, you’re the kid the whole day 

You get a sticker in your face 
Information ’bout the case 
So you know your potential 

Don’t think you can extend 
Don’t think you can extend, just comprehend 

But I don’t wanna hear it 
No, it’s more than I accept 

‘Cause I don’t care where I belong no more 
What we share or not I will ignore 
I will ignore 

We will shut you out 
We’ll put you in doubt 
If you think that you’re special 

We’ll tell you who you are 
We’ll tell you that you’re close but no cigar 

But I don’t wanna hear it 
No, it’s more than I accept 

‘Cause I don’t care where I belong no more 
What we share or not I will ignore 
And I won’t waste my time fitting in 
‘Cause I don’t think contrast is a sin 

What they say is 
Go back where you came from 

They’ll tell you that, I don’t want to hear 
No, I don’t want to hear 
No, I don’t want to hear it 
No, it’s more than I accept 

‘Cause I don’t care where I belong no more 
What we share or not I will ignore 

And I won’t waste my time fitting in 
‘Cause I don’t think contrast is a sin 

No, it’s not a sin
