Why would I go outside

Why would I Go outside
Where they pretend to be kind
Where they stare at me intently as if I'm worthy of shame
Ignore everything important as if noone were to blame
Where construction workers hammer away indifferently
Throwing away their lives just so they may be

Why would I Go outside
When I can just Close the blinds
Stare at the ceiling and pretend to disappear
Count the hours and crack another beer

It's cold in here and there's noone to talk to
But least it's somewhat comfortable
I'm shivering and there's nothing to do
Content to be a vegetable

Why would I Go outside
When I can just stay and hide
Vegetate and never try
Cry I might if my eyes weren't dry

Why would I go outside

Why would I Go outside

Where they pretend to be kind

Where they stare at me intently as if I'm worthy of shame

Ignore everything important as if noone were to blame

Where construction workers hammer away indifferently

Throwing away their lives just so they may be
