When you wake up in the morning what do you see
Gourmet style breakfast or a flatscreen tv?
When you see your reflection
Is it really perfection
Or the insecurities that lie beneath?
Arrive at school in a Benz
You have tons of friends
Put on a good act of display,
Try so hard to hide that deep down inside
You're having a really bad day.
You bully this kid to boost up your ego
Call him grim things like faggot and negro
The kid comes home to his two little brothers
No food, no water, no father, no mother.
You laugh, he cries
He grabs a blade and he dies.
That's the millionth time he’s been bullied for being gay
But you didn't know he was going to take his life that day.
Does that make it better?
Because you didn't know
You only said those things to expand your ego
Who would have known that he would do it
He was already suicidal but nobody knew it
You look in the mirror and you finally see
The shallow, superficial person underneath.
