Do you remember that kid in a couple of your classes
Just sits in the corner, writing as time passes
He's picked on constantly, but never says a word
He's got no friends; his voice is never heard
The kids diss his clothes and the way he wears his hair
The teachers don't notice that he's even there
They keep on teasing him with vicious attacks
Besides, he's a dork; it ain't like he'll fight back
He never shows his feelings, so how can you be sure
That you're not killing him with your harsh words

Beyond the night, he's crying
And deep inside, he's dying
Why do you keep testing him?
Your words will be the death of him

Can you take back the nonsense threats you've told him?
Can you take back all the tears you've stolen?
Once it's said, it's in his mind
Shredding him from the inside
You don't think before you speak
He's so defenseless and so weak
All the talking, it hurts
You're breaking him apart with your words

And even if you knew the pain that he withheld
You'd still refuse to stop putting him through hell
He's so ugly, he's such a freak, his clothes ain't in style
And you wonder why this kid never smiles
But how can someone smile when they can barely breathe
When they pray for death and cry themselves to sleep
He wants to be liked more than anyone does
Wouldn't you be afraid to die unloved?
He's clinging on to nothingness to stay alive
Just keep on talking, and your words will take his life

Beyond the night, he's crying
And deep inside, he's dying
Stop trying to get the best of him
Or your words will be the death of him

Can you take back the nonsense threats you've told him?
Can you take back all the tears you've stolen?
Once it's said, it's in his mind
Shredding him from the inside
You don't think before you speak
He's so defenseless and so weak
All the talking, it hurts
You're breaking him apart with your words

And you could never know the pain he never shows
His dying mind, his broken heart, his bleeding soul
And if he decided his life to end
Would you still be laughing at him, even then?
Sticks and stones proves wrong again
Because your words are the death of him

Can you take back the nonsense threats you've told him?
Can you take back all the tears you've stolen?
Once it's said, it's in his mind
Shredding him from the inside
You don't think before you speak
He's so defenseless and so weak
All the talking, it hurts
You're breaking him apart with your words
