Smiling and waving, to whom?
Nobody I guess
You look stupid in the crowd
So shut up and be quiet

It hard to blend in
With big books and thick glasses
You are transparent
In a crowd full of people
Who are vain and conceited

You want to belong
And wish to have what they have
But things never last
Your smiles are full of sadness
But no one asks you why
