No emotion, better keep that poker face,

Gotta be tough, can’t show any weakness.

Don’t show your hand, keep it a secret,

Can’t let the tears fall, cause boys don’t cry.

 

You’re not a real man, if you’re too emotional,

Cause you’re only allowed to feel anger.

Follow these rules to a T, they’re not optional,

Are you are man, or are you a fucking bitch?

 

Be Atlas, and hold the world upon your shoulders,

The burden is placed on you, won’t be any reinforcements

Take control of the situation, you’re the apex predator,

Ready to defend at all times, nothing but a soldier.

 

Fucking get over it, real men don’t get depressed,

Wrist cutter, you better cover up those scars.

Forgot to mention, you’d better be sex obsessed,

Be in the mood, ready to go, at the drop of a hat.

 

Look in the mirror, you’re weak and you’re spineless,

You should be ashamed of yourself, you’re a failure.

Wanting help, but no one’s gonna be your saviour,

Pull yourself up by the bootstraps, and be a fucking man.

 

No emotion, better keep that poker face,

Gotta be tough, can’t show any weakness.

Don’t show your hand, keep it a secret,

Can’t let the tears fall, cause boys don’t cry.
