Strength comes in numbers

That’s why my career choice gets questioned

Because if I’m not making triple digits

I’m not successful am I?

 

Strength comes in numbers

That’s why I must maintain a 95 average

Because if I’m not making good grades

I’m not all that smart am I?

 

Strength comes in numbers

That’s why I must make sports a priority

Because if I’m not #1 on the court

I’m just showing I’m weak aren’t I?

 

Strength comes in numbers

That’s why I should gain 10 pounds

Because if I don’t eat some biscuits

I will just be too skinny won’t I?

 

Strength doesn’t come in numbers

That’s why I give 0 shits about them

Because if I did

Then I’d have no strength against the pressure would I?
