A List Of Reasons

-

From the thunder and lightning

__that came to pass

The world of hate

__put my heart away

____for me

I've dropped my pebbles in the basket

I give up throwing them at windows

What kind of girl would open hers for me?

If I give kindness to a rats ass

What kind of blindness could lead me?

I think I'll lead myself into my own madness

I do that well enough

__don't I?

If I ever walked around

With a silly look on my face

__called "a frown"

What will become of my shitty bullshit self?

Why I put myself down

__is a mystery

I can't speak highly of myself

I just can't

That would make me look

__like I think "I'm the shit"

And I don't wanna look like I think that

'Cause I hate others who think they

__are "the shit"

So I would hate myself

__for looking like them

I really would rather call myself "stupid"

"Retarded"

"Helpless"

"Hopeless"

"A mess"

"Worthless"

"Unemployable"

"Trash"

"Lazy"

"Immature"

"Irresponsible"

"Fucked up"

"Wack"

"Weak"

"Small"

"Little"

"Garbage"

"Nothing"

"A waste"

"Ugly"

"Filth"

"Useless"

"Know-nothing"

"Loser"

"Failure"

Growthless"

"Unknown"

"Weakling"

"Lightweight"

"Over-analytical"

"Obsessed"

"Sensitive"

"Unreasonable"

"Stubborn"

"Disrespectful"

"A clown"

"A fool"

"Broke"

"A joke"

"A disturbance"

"Annoying"

"Greety"

"Selfish"

"A loner"

"A know-it-all"

"Faithless"

"Cowardly"

"Empty"

"Unwhole"

"Indifferent"

"Unwilling"

"Closed-minded"

"Redundant"

"Broken record"

And "pointless"

So without any reason to be called

__anything else

I move on from the world

Because nobody likes any of that

And I look for a place

To isolate

And waste

Tired of tryin' to look like anything else

Who have I got to gain

__when all I do

____is fail?

If I have to be high

__just to say "Im the shit"

Then why even say it?
