I’ll go first — my song about masking and deciding to stop because of the repercussions
Pls no hate <3 :) but always honest

How To Be Human

I tried everything to fit in
I changed everything I could
To maintain connection
Google was my best friend
Turns out for most people it’s built in

I was raised to say what I mean
And treat other people how I’d want them to treat me
But apparently people don’t like when I’m nice to me

Im human just like you
I promise it’s the truth
And if you don’t believe
I can show you how

I’ll read the plot on the way to the movies
Look in your eyes when you’re talking to me
I’ll hug you tight when it’s time to say goodbye

I learnt my lines watching TV and movies
Learned what you liked from your Facebook story
Ya, as long as I follow the script I should be fine

This is how to be human, ya
You can learn it online

I pretend to be offended
I pretend to not be offensive
I do the right thing every time
Just not the right way

Cuz apparently my friendships over because I forgot a birthday
And my sister thinks I’m a psychopath because she didn’t know that I was joking
And men think I’m willing to cheat
Because I wanna be friends

Im human just like you
I promise it’s the truth
And if you don’t believe me
I can show you how

I’ll read the plot on the way to the movies
Look in your eyes when you’re talking to me
I’ll hug you tight when it’s time to say goodbye

I learnt my lines from the TV and movies
Learned what you liked from your Facebook story
As long as I follow the script I should be fine

This is how to be human, ya
You can learn it online

Every single thing I do seems to backfire
Every time I tell the truth, I’m called a liar
I made this mask to be something that you like

Every time you said I was bad, I believed you
I fixed everything that you said that you still do
I aim for perfect in your way
At the price of mine

I learned how to be human, ya
But that was a lie

I’ll tell the plot on the way to the movies
I’ll look away as you’re talking to me
I’ll say goodbye when it’s time to say goodbye

I’ll reference lines from my favourite movies
Learn what you like if i like your stories, ya
And I’ll make fun of the script, ya, I’ll do it live

I’ve learned how to be human, yeah
But now it’s time for real life
