Staring me down,
News
On the TV today

Making me feel small,
12 point font
Headlines with big words, big guns
Pointed at my small mind that can't measure up,
so I'm done

Listening,
are you stupid or what?
Just using words no simpleminded person would know
Raining these phrases,
my umbrella raises up
To block out the gazes this logic defeats

From when the sun said it's goodbye to the day
To when it woke from napping,
the night was awake
Father on mother thinks under the cover of darkness they're lovers
Makes no sense to me

He plays asleep,
a boy that wants just to escape
Can't wait and flips his phone out again
Somehow, I know now this place that I had found
I need to get out

Who do I see? Stupid and small, look through the mirror
And back at the wall, who are you?

Shaking me down,
my lonely logic finds
'Nother thorn of this envy in my side
called heartbreak
Yeah, I give my all, I'm on the ball afraid to fall, and soon to call
"Just shut up and go, you don't know!"
But I'm on hold by people that sigh "Do as you're told"

Closing my eyes,
sleep
but not getting a wink
I feel the glare and staring eyes that seemingly care
Not good enough yet, these enemies just let their words
Fire through me like there's nothing upstairs

It has to be,
are you stupid or what?
Just using words no simpleminded person would know
Rain in my mind, I just know that I can't find
My way now, just tell me the way out
Where can I go?

"We only want those things we never can gain"
"Made by man, ain't it all the same?"
Laughing like I'm dumb,
realize I'm feeling numb
Life like a ghost as thin as air
It doesn't matter if you're gone,
you're here nor there
If I left today,
would they even know my name?

Shaking me down,
my lonely logic finds
'Nother thorn of this envy in my side
called heartbreak
My shakey memories and logic can't deny
Maybe my past wasn't bad a lovely lie
'Cause I know

I'm the one thing that's saving what's beating in everyone
Well, that's not reality
But it's alright, I can at least try in my dreams
