What does it mean to be original?
We've grown up in a world where we are taught to be our own person.
If I had a penny for everytime someone tells me to do what I think is right.
They all want to grow up thinking they're special because they're individual. That no-one can relate to them because they're trapped in their own shell. That they've managed to escape and become their own individual.
Because they're all doing it at the same time: it's not original. It's exactly the same.
There's no such thing as originality. There's no such thing as individuality.

You're imagination is nothing but little pieces of things you hear; things you see
