lyrics

I came for the party
I left to ease the shame
Of knowingly passive favor
That are tied, to the letters in my name
My name

Fade into the background
Where color doesn’t reach our faces
Blend into the background
Take it back twenty paces
I am the background
You can’t see me
Fade into the background
Can’t cut me where it hurts

I arrived thinking it would be different
Departed with the same old lies
That are the same
Across every face, and a shadow
Cast over all eyes
All eyes

Fade into the background
Where color doesn’t reach our faces
Blend into the background
Take it back twenty paces
I am the background
You can’t see me
Fade into the background
Can’t cut me where it hurts

Hide my face inside a drawing
Secret haunting always watching
Long to be what nobody asks for, nobody sees
But that’s not the lines that were carved out for me
Oh, oooh, oh oh ooh

Color doesn’t reach our faces
Take it back twenty paces, oh
I am the background
Can’t cut me where it hurts
Can’t cut me where it hurts
