Thee Never Ending Cycle Of Being Rejected And Complaining About It


Rejection fallows me

__ev'rywhere I go

From the hos at the market

To the perfect lady

When all I want

__is to not be called "crazy"

But whatta I know?

I only got an "A" in Abnormal Psychology

Maybe ev'rything about me is fucked up

Maybe I should study sociology

Just to understand society

But I don't wanna go back to school

No matter how much my refusal

__of continuing my education

____makes me a complete fool

My uneveness is weary

And very dreary

I toss and turn

Look ev'rywhere but the ceiling

Thee only place I should be looking

But me and God are not speaking

I can't pray for myself

I can only pray for some one else

What kind of "some one else" is there

__in my life?

But I understand

Bicyclists are hated on

And I make no exception

I may not be fat

But love is not coming back

And it's probably all because I have no car

It all started when I broke

__the car's transmission

That's when the breakup began

The breakup saved my ass

But I was left with nobody

It just had to happen

It was worth being alone

But the damage she caused in my life

__I cannot repair

Rejection was already ev'rywhere

It started in the family

Then spread out to my friends

Now the whole world

__wants nothing to do with what I am

Well, the world can go fuck themselves

For making it too late

__for me to be accepted

How was I supposed to know

__she was going to ruin my life?

I never get any credit

__for leaving her

Ev'rybody still wants nothing to do with me

Even my homies


____won't hang out with me

They even hate on me

__just for writing about it

Call me a "bitch"

__and a "pussy"

Calling my work "pity pot poetry"

And say I'm "playing the victim"

Even though


____of all people

______you'd think

________would never reject me

But they're just a part of the world

So I guess how can they not reject me?

The whole world is disgusted

__with what I've become

And ev'rybody says it's my fault

Well, even me taking the blame

Will never stop rejection

__from attaching itself to my life

My ability to complain

__insanely seems more important

____than having any friends

So I'm not gonna stop it

It's ev'rything I am

All that I can become

So what if I'm rejected by ev'ry one?
