Who is Josh Groban Kill Yourself!!!!- Glee

Sometimes well at least to me
it appears High school is the only
place i’ll ever be
it seems I will never
crawl my way out
like nothing else matters
if i have no friends in a class and
am a total looser
then well life is over

then life rears its ugly head
in the form of half starved desperate
war refugees
who would do or give
anything to be in my position
being shown on the news
as they huddle in refugee camps
the pain, fear and anger
the likes of which
I will never be able to comprehend

When I go visit a hospital
and see emaciated
bodies of 6 year old cancer patients
huddled up against the folds of their hospital beds
crying waterless tears
for they have nothing left in their bodies
and pain is all they feel now
crying to their parents
who would give anything
to see their children smile again
to be normal
instead they watch helpless
they can’t move
that child would give anything
to be where I am now
healthy and happy

I guess when life gets me down
and school has me depressed
I feel like such a total looser
I can look around and remember it could always be worse
