They Made Me This Way

I face the familiar stares
The thoughtless cares
Turning my back willingly
To the harsh words meant for me

But I can’t pay the cost
I feel so lost
As if every move I make
Every step I take
Brings me one step further away
From home

It’s him, and her, and them, and they
They made me this way
This is all because
Of what they say
It’s all because
I’m willing to defray

Their familiar stares
And thoughtless cares
That all rubbed me the wrong way

It’s their familiar stares
The thoughtless cares
That ended my day

Their familiar stares
And thoughtless cares
That I obey

It’s the familiar stares
The thoughtless cares
That made me this way
