“The greatest taboo” (lyrics)

The greatest taboo

I’ve been a liar

 

scared of the truth

 

trying to hide

 

myself from you

 

 

 

I’ve been so scared

 

so terrified

 

that you could find out

 

what I hid inside

 

 

 

I’ve played the fool 

 

followed some rules

 

jumped through hoops in school

 

fit in to be cool

 

(among the rebels)

 

 

 

I learned some lies

 

people paid to hear

 

I learned some truths

 

people hated in fear

 

 

 

I learned some secrets

 

that everyone sees

 

but no one admits

 

at least not to me

 

 

 

I shouldn’t be

 

what I am 

 

or that’s the myth

 

I’ve been pretending

 

to believe

 

 

 

 

 

I am so sorry

 

my guilt was all fake

 

my only regret is…

 

apologizing for my rage

 

 

but now it’s okay

 

that I’ve been so mad

 

I’m even grateful

 

that I was so sad

 

 

that courage is shameful

 

on this island of fools

 

to feel scared, yet be bold

 

is the greatest taboo

 

 

I’ve been so shy

 

I’ve been so quiet

 

I’ve been in hiding

 

to stay alive

 

 

but it’s time

 

to be brave

 

once again

 

 

I shouldn’t have

 

done what I did

 

or that’s the myth

 

I’ve been pretending

 

to believe

God please forgive us

 

for being ashamed

 

of our past

 

 

 

God please forgive us

 

for being less brave

 

than we can

 

 

 

God please forgive us

 

for being afraid

 

 

 

God please forgive us

 

for being afraid

 

of fear
