I am me. Lyrics

Is it true? Is it that obvious?
I’m searching for the truth
In this black box, a shiver runs down my spine
To quote someone else’s words in trepidation, I was just lying
Because I can’t see a thing, there’s nothing else to rely on

I’ll continue to ask that question, what is the meaning of life
My superfluous thought is that God is so ruthless
It repeats every day

“What’s your goal for the future?” I have worries, I’m thinking long term
If it’s impossible for me, I’ll just live desperately
I lost sight of my goal for the future, I cry, I’m thinking it through
For me, as I am now, I’m an eternal work in progress
And I can run through these days that will never be the same

This is my true intent, to put it bluntly
I hid the truth
This white room, despite what it always seems, is never calm
It is scary to reveal your true self? What do you believe in?
If you don’t feel anything, there’s not really any pain at all

I’ll continue to ask that question, what is the meaning of life
My superfluous thought is that God is so ruthless
It repeats every day

“What’s your goal for the future?” I have worries, I’m thinking long term
If it’s impossible for me, I’ll just live desperately
I lost sight of my goal for the future, I cry, I’m thinking it through
For me, as I am now, I’m an eternal work in progress
And I can run through these days that will never be the same

I can’t just say only beautiful things, uncool things
All the words I don’t say – I am me*

“What’s your goal for the future?” I have worries, I’m thinking long term
If it’s impossible for me, I’ll just live desperately
I lost sight of my goal for the future, I cry, I’m thinking it through
For me, as I am now, I’m an eternal work in progress
And I can run through these days that will never be the same

*‘All the words I don’t say are what makes me who I am’ would have been a better translation given the context, but I wanted to have the song title in the lyrics, since they’ve clearly Google translated the last bit into English to get the title.
