ALAMO
Alec Benjamin


Yeah

Please give me a reason to believe all the lies
'Cause my teachers and the media are ghouls in disguise
Abusing their authority to prosthelytize
But nothing they report to me could change my mind

I need a vacation from the way things have been
Because I'm growing impatient, yeah, it's boiling my skin
Had enough manipulation, can you just let me live? Mm, mm
Live my life

I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life, rather die
Than lay down on my back got no white flag to throw
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo

Please give me a reason to give up on myself
You can tell me that it's treason, this is stand and rebel
I won't pledge you my allegiance, I'll just bid you farewell, Mm, mm
And goodbye

I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life, rather die
Than lay down on my back, got no white flag to throw
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo

I know that on the surface
It might seem like I'm just fine
But I can't eat, I barely sleep
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
I feel like I'm dying in this cage
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
And I just wish they'd let me out
So I could finally live my life

I know that on the surface
It might seem like I'm just fine
But I can't eat, I barely sleep
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
I feel like I'm dying in this cage
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
And I just wish they'd let me out
So I could finally live my life (finally live my life)

I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life, rather die
Than lay down on my back, got no white flag to throw

I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life, rather die
Than lay down on my back, got no white flag to throw
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo
