They tell me I've got to leave a mark
Yet I'm always alone, left in the dark.
They tell me it's safe and sound,
Yet I find myself lost, never to be found.
They tell me to learn through trial and error,
Yet all I feel is pain and terror.
And when I try to fit in and conform
They attack, leaving me ripped and torn.
They brand me with a scarlet letter,
But I'm a child who didn't know better.
They call me a fag, they call me a freak
But can't they see they're the ones who are oblique?
And then, they tell me I'm fucked up and weak
But they deny me the help I seek.
They put me on the building's ledge,
And now they're pushing me over the edge.
I fly with the wings of a broken dove;
A girl, who was never allowed to love.
And when I'm dead and gone
What went wrong?
