just finished getting showered with complements
it's funny how condescending politeness
makes oneself feel like shit
makes me bite my lip and consider consequences
my conscience and common sense
says that hittin them is senseless,
they don't get that shit's offensive
so with clenched fists,
like a sponge i just absorb it
answer their questions
and try to make my life sound more boring
but i have to assess these options every second
cause there's always someone there
needing to feel good about themselves
being polite these days
is just as selfish
as a corporate donation
nothin to do with consideration
who needs friends
when you're always surrounded by strangers
what the hell happenned
things seemed so different when i was ten
