I was feeling like shit, I still do.


I was going bald in the eighth grade
My hair is back and it has made
Me a little more comfortable with myself
I have no clue what to do with it
My medications have made it curly
I haven't found a style I will soon surly

There are some days where I get real high
And I look in a mirror and start to cry
And I pull out my hair in handfuls at a time
I don't know why, there's no rhyme or reason
I punish myself I've committed treason
I wish I could just curl up and die

But nevertheless the story goes on
I take my glasses and I put them on
I hope no one sees through my true intentions
I am a victim off my own invention
As the days build up so does the tension
I'm trying to make it through without breaking

I walk like a drunk, unsure of myself
N one notices, but I can tell
I hide myself away on the tallest shelf
I feel l'm failing every expectation
I don't know if I'll make it to my graduation
Sitting alone everyday doesn't help

Don't even get me started on girls
Society's standards make me want to hurl
Why is this shit so fucking complicated?
I have a hard time taking a hint
Every girl I've met has left an imprint
I fall in love way too easily

But sometimes I feel like there is something more
No this isn't superficial, No she isn't artificial
There is something about her, but I can't tell what it is
Maybe it's something about her hair
I become so obsessed I begin to scare
Myself and everyone who looks through my phone

I want to write on but my brain is fried
It feels like I have finally died
I haven't come to terms with my circumstances
This is the part where I end the song
I would hate for it to drag on
I will probably find some better lyrics in the future
