We love to hate but hate to love
everyday i watch girls cover their face with make-up
we pour ourselves into our jeans
trying to fit the mold of what we think we should be
hiding behind curling irons and cute clothes
afraid to be be ourselves and really show
who you are.
to be loved and wanted is all we really seek in high school
who cares if i have to hide my true colors to be cool
these high heel chains attatched to my feet
they keep me linked to society
this caked on mask i use to hide my face
keeps me from being pushed away
the unspoken words that no one knows
my problems my fears my broken home
my hopes my dreams my inspiration
i just keep it to myself because no one pays attention
i know im not the only one who feels this way
im just the only one whos brave enough to say it
and if your happy being molded and constricted
stop being cruel and judgeing the ones who are conflicted
the ones who are to hurt tired and broken to speak up
the ones who have been used and abused and afe just ready for their life to be done...
we walk past them everyday
but we're just to comfortable in our own molds to say
"how are you?"
"are you doing ok?"
instead we're selfish and just shy away
we think "oh someone else will do it"
and we surpress the guilt until we can get through it?
sometimes we say "oh i'll do it tomorrow just wait"
but sometimes tomorrow can be to late
we all have our problems and don't care to add more
but just because you're not pushed to that point dosn't mean you don't need a cure
stop letting others bend and twist your morals
stop falling victom to societys tourtures
step back and take a look in the mirror
some nice quiet place where no one can hear you
and yell IM MY OWN PERSON I CONTROL ME!
AND IM SOOOO TIRED OF NOT BEING FREE!!
whether you sit all alone or have thousands of friends
how many of those thousand will stick til the end
well i have the solution for eveyone
every prep, nerd, geek, freak, fine arts fan, and athlete
if your goal is to be wanted and loved
step out of the chains and be yourself for once
i know it sounds scary but give it a try
wouldn't it be easier with somneone by your side
someone who knows who you really are
someone to puch you til you reach the stars
and if your to scared of being rejected to try
stop thinking so hard and just close your eyes
imagine a school, a country, a world
where every single boy and girl
can just be themselves and have true friends
instead of haveing this empty space and keep hurting
love the person you are and be yourself now
you'll make real friends and i'll tell you how
i know the thought of being alone is scary
so if you want your first friend
can be me
its time to change the way the world is run
there is no reason we should love to hate but hate to love
