They knew that I was different,
yet they stood there and watched me suffer,
a fawn in the headlights.
I never knew what was coming,
I never knew the truth.
And when I tried to save myself,
nothing could have helped me.

They say that screaming's helpless,

nobody's there to hear,

but when it is your only option,

i hope people can hear.
