I have a few, so pardon the long post Crippler Cliques (this one's about being bullied in school) You crawl on the ground afraid to stand up jumping at a chance to pull somebody down You cling to the crowd afraid to stand out eager for a chance to push somebody out Your life has no meaning you're trying to belong spit on, laugh at, trample down even if it's wrong If you'd just find a moment and open your mind you'd realise there's nothing no reason to cause all this pain School Frustrations Schools don't educate they teach us to fear and surrender to fate Schools make learning dull memorizing details is simply no fun Of course it's all indirect it's hidden so well that no-one would suspect that it's here and it's there look around, it's not fair You turn to the class and ask a question I would gladly reply if I were so inclined But something else is on my mind learning of a different kind The things that mean the most to me are good and pure and true and free I speak with a friend and I'm punished for that when I try to defend I'm thrown out for backchat Respect is something that you have to earn but you yell, demand and give none in return Used to be There used to be respect here when it wasn't in demand excellence in atmosphere kindness all around but advertising those facts wouldn't work in this town emphasizing other things removing many choices one by one they disappear silencing our voices you protect yourself from open minds as you shrug the blame away took a chance with one of a kind and then lied to save your name you started by ignoring and slowly grew to greed now all the good has fallen because of one bad seed. Fire Escape I'm standing here watching but I won't interfere it hurts... but I'll burn the voices of reason are waiting outside safe and sound in the cold their safety ensures that they'll never discover what it really means to burn the arrows on the wall scream at me "the exit is right this way!" thanks for the tip, but I'm going in deeper I have an inferno to find it'll be a long journey and I'll go it alone these are flames you can't smother I will gladly burn closer and closer, can I contain it? the warmth really overwhelms I must be insane, but I've made up my mind: safety is for cowards I will never turn back I'll be one with the flames they will rage on long after I'm gone... I am invincible.
