Don’t Resist

Smile, they are watching
Lest they see weakness or sorrow
Smile, they are watching
Lest they make it about themselves
Smile, they are watching
Lest you blemish their joy
Smile, they are watching
Smile, they are watching…

Obey, they have spoken
Who are you to know better?
Obey, they have spoken
Who do you value more?
Obey, they have spoken
Who else do you owe more?
Obey, they have spoken
Obey, they have spoken…

Follow the world, but be unique
Bring them glory, which they seek
They wish you success, at all you do
As long as it’s what they want of you
There is time yet for you to be you
For now, you are them, and they you…
