I am not second rate 
Nor am I first place
The blood that runs fast red and hot in these veins are the same that run in this human race
A race we all try to out run
I don't pretend to be the best
Nor do I feel like last place
Two feet stand on the ground balancing an act between heaven and hell. Don't we all? 
I am not second rate
Nor am I first place
The devil and angel play toss on these shoulders as much as a new kid tries to participate 
I don't pretend to bs the best
Nor do I feel like last place 
My mind your mind their mind 
Its all a battle.
To be liked, to be the fun one. To be included.
A battle of trying.
Their mind, my mind your mind.
I am not second rate
Nor am I first place. 
Just the same as you with a different headcase.
My blood, their blood our blood run fast red and hot.
We all run in this humanrace.
Some outrun some pace run and then there's walk run.
We are all standing balancing between heaven and hell. Some with both feet firm down. 
Your mind their mind my mind
One day dust to ash towards the wind on the human race
So Im not second rate
Nor am I first place 
Just two feet running a race we all run 
Only at a different pace.
