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"




"A mess"







"Fucked up"







"A waste"

















"A clown"

"A fool"


"A joke"

"A disturbance"




"A loner"

"A know-it-all"









"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?
