I'm trying to sum up how you may be the outcast at a party or function. I realise the imagery is flawed, but hey, that never stopped me trying before!

I fix my hair, and brush my teeth.

Do my make-up, drink my tea.

Leave the house, it's party time,

Attention seeker, until you're mine.

Drink some more, cry a bit.

Think about an easy way

To twist your words for my own gain.

Attention seeker, on the line.

And I am fallen, you didn't fall.

I am fallen. I tried it all.

And I am fallen, we didn't talk.

I am fallen, it didn't work.

I head back home, begin to write.

The tragic diary of my night.

Yes I am glad that I came to play,

My little attention seeking game.
