Go on talk about what you don't know.
And pretend as the time drains slow.
Scream about how stupid we are.
As I wear the scars.
I already understand this pain can never fill me.
Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will kill me.

You don't know what its like,
To be dying in the night.
You don't know what it is,
To put scars on your wrist.
You can't contemplate,
Every ounce of the pain.
Its a form of release,
To try and bring peace.

To still the storm,
And not hurt anymore.
Its not for attention.
We hide this imperfection.
But you just drag us down.
Scream profanities as you trample us into the ground.
But despite your lies we'll rise above.
We will heal and learn to love.


This isn't about trying to make you notice.
And trying to speak will only be pointless.
We are trying,
Not to lose our minds.
Do you even know all the ways,
You can be triggered in a day?
No you don't you fool.
Just keep trying to play it cool.

You don't know what its like,
To be dying in the night.
You don't know what it is,
To put scars on your wrist.
You can't contemplate,
Every ounce of the pain.
Its a form of release,
To try and bring peace.

To still the storm,
And not hurt anymore.
Its not for attention.
We hide this imperfection.
But you just drag us down.
Scream profanities as you trample us into the ground.
But despite your lies we'll rise above.
We will heal and learn to love.


So pretend you're perfect,
And call us worthless.
But the truth of the matter,
Is you've never been shattered.
So who are you to tell us how stupid we are?
Have you ever felt you soul torn apart?

You don't know what its like,
To be dying in the night.
You don't know what it is,
To put scars on your wrist.
You can't contemplate,
Every ounce of the pain.
Its a form of release,
To try and bring peace.

To still the storm,
And not hurt anymore.
Its not for attention.
We hide this imperfection.
But you just drag us down.
Scream profanities as you trample us into the ground.
But despite your lies we'll rise above.
We will heal and learn to love.


And despite 
How you injure us inside,
We'll climb out of the smoking crater. 
I'm not the traitor,
To society.
So blind you can't see.
We won't give up.
And we'll rise above.
This song goes along with the drawing I created that goes by the same title:) Here's a link to it: [link] Please tell me what you think!

I'm really really glad you like this piece and the drawing that accompanies it! This song was written with a lot of passion but I was concerned it might come off as silly or childish.

Thank you! Its very very heartening to hear you say so.

it's easy to doubt yourself and when someone says something that throws your lack of self esteem of balance, it can take a few moments to adjust. <3
