When you're drowning and they don't care.

Forget you, forget your dreams, and you can't bare

The pain

It's driving you insane.

You

Want

Out.

You're

Screaming

Loud.

You're

Going

Down.

You've

Done

It

Now.


They never notice those demons inside.

They can't figure out why you cry at night.

Why you get mad, why you're always sad.

They like to judge you, never get to actually know you.

They're nothing like you and you can't relate to them.

They never seem to know the pain they cause

Or how they words they say is how it was brought.

They never think before they speak.

And while you know deep inside that what you feel isn't true.

You've convinced yourself that you're worthless, that no one in this world wants you.


I'm a liar and this world doesn't know.

Fed them fake reasons and a 'fine' to show

My world

Hangs on a delicate thread.

And

I'm

Lost.

Now

They're

Cross.

They're

The

Boss

I

Am

Dross

They don't understand

They won't comprehend

They don't care enough to truly help you.

They don't know the first thing about you.

And you won't let them in, because it won't change a thing.

They'll still laugh at you, judge you in self-righteous, condescending tones.

They'll still treat you like you're too naïve to know.

Talk down to you. You're nothing to him, nothing to her.

You're useless, pathetic, a revolting speck of dirt.

And you're under their shoe. You're an ant to their importance.

You'll never go anywhere in life, you're weak, disgusting, and stupid.

So step back, but don't let the world see your imperfections,

And tell everyone you're fine, when they doubt and question.


It's not like they notice those terrifying demons you have

That point out your flaws all day and all night.

They scold you when you're mad, or being bad.

But they never notice that you're always bitter and sad.

They like to judge you, but never tried to really know you.

Perceptions and misconceptions of people without a single clue

You can't relate to them, they're nothing like you.

You're nothing like a person you know, and it shames you too.

You're scared to do wrong, because it means disapproving frowns

And the scowl comes with a voice of its own sound

And while you know deep inside that they do care about you

You've convinced yourself that none of it is true.
