Egypt Central- Different

This song is entirely based around the idea of living for yourself, and how trying to be something else causes us to break down. This is about sacrifice and bravery in accepting yourself for who you are.

 

 

Lyrics

“Different”

Used to live my life for you
Until my soul got tired
Did all I was supposed to do
I could fool a liar

[Pre-chorus]
Threw it all away
Through it all to find redemption
Gave it all away
Gave it all to who would listen

[Chorus]
That’s the price I paid
For being different
And I walk this road alone
That’s the price I paid
For being different
I can call this life my own

Used to be a part of you
Until that part was taken
I used to see your point of view
Until my faith was shaken

[Pre-chorus]
Threw it all away
Through it all to find redemption
Gave it all away
Gave it all to who would listen

[Chorus]
That’s the price I paid
For being different
And I walk this road alone
That’s the price I paid
For being different
I can call this life my own

Running in the sun to seek what I’ll find
Crossing your path that intersects mine
Trapped in a scene that only seems real
Confronted by dreams that I can now feel
My fronts have all failed and been stripped away
We all look the same at the end of the day
Given up once I’ll take it back twice
Will it ever cease this is my flight
Slow me down to breathe
Never will I break this fate could not faze me
Never could I shake the things that you gave me
My heart does not see
Concrete burns and skies will come down
But nothing can take the focus I’ve found

Used to live my life for you
Used to be a part of you

[Chorus]
That’s the price I paid
For being different
And I walk this road alone
That’s the price I paid
For being different
I can call this life my own
