Welcome to the dark side of non-conformism.

 When you’re strange
People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down

When you’re strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange

Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange

I love this song. Does it sound like your life at all? Are you the strange one that everyone talks about behind your back? I know how you feel. I think I’ve gotten over it…but you know, every now and then, I sometimes wonder what it would be like to accepted by the ‘normal ones’, you know, the cool guys that never seem to do anything different from anyone else. I suppose my goal here is to convince you, dear reader, that it’s ok to be different. Those who say otherwise, frankly, are quite stupid.

I’d like to encourage you to step up above the mass of normalcy and be yourself. After all, it’s people like you who carry on the race, the ones who are brave enough to go against the flow, that are eventually celebrated as heroes or villains in the history books written by the ones who wouldn’t dare to do what you did. Got a little poetic there. The point is to be yourself. The world doesn’t need another clone. It needs you, even if it won’t admit it.

Listen to “Without Walls” by Memphis May Fire. Pay attention to the lyrics.

This is me, Edge, telling you to get your butt off the ground.
