lyrics

This is for the "cats" feeling out of the place... Cait Sith

If you loving what I’m saying, everybody “throw it up:” like you ‘bout to lose a pound today

Take a shovel now we got a lot of ground to break 

Turn the level up, we got a lot sound to make

I make a case to vacate any sentiment 

Dictating that being the same equates relevance

This is my element

I was always kinda nerdy and I’m awkward

Looking at me like you working on a crossword

Team captain didn’t want me on a roster

I’m indifferent to the people all around me

I be coughing ‘cause I feeling like I’m drowning

Never had enough to be another hype beast

Ya’ll prolly find me sipping up on a Hi-C, blonde hair and spiky

Only child

Nobody hold me down. I’m so lonely now 

No hope or trust, I’m so insecure

And ain’t nobody coming near when I seal the door 

Was the only Asian in a place, complaining

That God ain’t awake and He so mistaken

No fascination with the world around me

As it whirls around me, it’s a culmination

Never comprehended what it meant to be normal

Never won awards, never went to the Formal

Wanted to belong but couldn’t quite “deliver”

That slice of that pie, and couldn’t bite the dinner

God, how long ‘till you getting me out?

Ain’t nobody living here that could figure me out

And then it all clicked, I found my foundation

In video games and a page of animation

This is my final fantasy

Where the world gets saved by the outcast
 When the hope’s in the hands of the ragtag
 Where the champs all handled a bad past
 All alone and the world seems distant

If games and anime had taught me one thing: heroes always seem different

I never liked to party, never liked to drink; I never liked debauchery, and all the things

That all the peers around me all appear to round up and they seeming happy but I’m deeply doubting it

Not saying I’m better. I’m saying I’m different, it’s not my decision for my own indifference

I want to be part of the posse but probably won’t cop an audition

Feeling out of place like a Final Fantasy main protagonist

Terra’s magic and Zidane in Tantalus, Cloud in AVALANCHE

I give you more, gladly: Link in the Kokiri Forest with Navi

Smacking the grass with the sword and it’s slashing to rupees that pop out to top off the baggie

Feeling out of place: like Sasuke is in Team 7

Like Zoro wielding three weapons. One mouth, one right, and one left hand
 Like Crono on board the Epoch. Going back in time in mere seconds

Like elite professions in the League of Legends ain’t nobody competing ‘cause we "reckless"

Now it’s time to switch your perspective don’t blink and miss your direction
 You see a curse, you better change perception, start thinking gift or a blessing

Feeling out of place all alone and the world seems distant

But games and anime had taught us one thing: heroes always seem different

Naruto taught me

Sasuke taught me

Monkey D. Luffy, Kakashi taught me
 Mario taught me

Crono taught me

Sanji, Nami, Yuffie all taught me
 Mugen taught me

Haruko taught me

Goku, Pokemon, Haruhi, taught me 
 Final Fantasy 3, 7, 10 taught me

Red XIII, Locke, Wakka all taught me

This is my final fantasy

Where the world gets saved by the outcast

When the hope’s in the hands of the ragtag

Where the champs all handled a bad past

All alone and the world seems distant

If games and anime had taught me one thing: heroes always seem different
