I wrote this for a select few people
And I’ll describe them to you as we go.
They’re the ones you all condemn.
The ones you call weirdos.
The ones who’d rather stay inside
As opposed to leaving with the rest.
The ones who don’t mind studying alone
Because they know they’ll still pass the test
The ones who don’t join social clubs
Or attend every gathering
The ones who think Prom is overrated
And that Homecoming is boring
The ones who read books
Instead of watching flicks
The ones who like to walk by themselves
Instead of walking with pricks
See these people are admirable to me
And I happen to be one of them.
Society teaches us to find a niche in life
And gives us this sudden urge to find friends
But what if we’re cool by ourselves?
What if we like being antisocial?
What if we just don’t wanna be bothered?
Isn’t that understandable?
So respect the ones who are by themselves.
They’re not weird, they’re just people.
They’re fine without anybody’s help.
Society’s own version of the Eagle.
