John wiped away the steamy mirror
"Oh thanks god".. and proceeded to get ready For the taunts he would face alone

Meet John Merrick
He toyed with elephants that consumed his Whole body with imperfections
Feared by the school queens
He kept his head down,
Ran through the crowds of laughter, Embarrassed
And he screamed,
Stop Teasing Me

His dream was to be held by another.
"you're too ugly to hold, to ugly to love"
He held the up most beauty in his heart,
He got swept up beneath the city

John left the town, in search of elephants that stomped his body ,
That left him with a life of humiliations,
They were nowhere to be found
Last night he looked deep inside, and found Out the answers to why

His tears caused the flood in which he sailed down for years,
He found a piece of land
Where he was sure to live alone,
But he met many more like himself that sailed Down the very same flood

John still dreamt of the life he wanted,
over and over again.

Make me feel like a man should,
I am John Merrick
