Why do I feel like I'm the outcast looking in?

Feel my way in the darkness

Edge my way inside on the outskirts of town

All I see is empty glares and hostile mouths

They hang around me like sicking thoughts

Thoughts I can't bring myself to stare at

Look at in the eye

Why do I see raised voices and hear fights?

The slurred hatred whirling around me

Like a terrifying realisation

A living nightmare

In which I must play my part

Why are you walking away?

You promised…

Or does that not count?

Are they just words with no purpose?

Silent threats lay in your eyes

Standing alone

Tipping over the edge

I hate the words

I hate their meaning

I hate the way people make me feel
