Independence trap

I can’t explain why I feel this way
How I’m made I’m told I have no say
Between me and the world there’s this tension
Other people don’t seem that genuine
Why not act like yourselves, instead of fake?
From the blue pool of real my thirst I slake
Call it as I see it, surely that’s best
I don’t act on someone else’s behest
In inviolate self my pride I gird
’Cause conformity is a dirty word

Heh heh heh, you fall into my trap, boy
Independence is the latest fashion
As is your disdain for the hoi polloi
Truth is you’re not the truth you imagine
Seek out others less, lest you see some joy
In God their Creator, so your heart I win
