Quirky ones

k

that’s us, the non-conformists

 

awkward to a tee

 

always always have to be different

 

forever the alternative

 

that’s us –

 

the quirky ones

 k

 k

We’ve pretty much always been that way

 

never seem to conform

 

never ever straightforward with us

 

always on the edge

 

different ~ radical ~ awkward

 

that’s us –

 

the quirky ones

 k

 k

Society can’t quite deal with us

 

they marginalize us

 

they shun us

 

they mock us

 

they pity us

 

they barely accept us

 

that’s us –

 

the quirky ones

 k

We’re the odd balls

 

or the drop outs

 

or the losers

 

the misfits

 

or the academic idiots

 

or the socially inept

 

the stray cats

 

or just plain peculiar

 

that’s us –

 

the quirky ones

 k

We sometimes try to fit in

 

we do make the effort

 

but we inevitably fall to one side

 

even when we try to dress like the normals 

 

we still end up looking not-quite-right

 

we do try

 

but we just can’t help ourselves 

 

because after all

 

that’s us –

 

the quirky ones

 k

But hey

 

thanks to us awkward bunch

 

things would be a lot worse

 

we are the ones getting in the way

 

we are the ones asking uncomfortable questions

 

we are not adapting to the new normals

 

we’re constantly seeking out alternatives

 

society can thank their lucky stars for the likes of us 

 

yep that’s us –

 

the quirky ones
