Shut The Ringer Off

Broken phone,
(In the corner,)
is there
(nobody there?)
Anybody there could
(hear him scream? And)
fix the ringer but
(they are all happy,)
they're too busy to care.
(looking at him through the glass.)

The discarded phone,
(In the corner,)
it has no use,
(he has no use,)
so they left, went up the stairs
(behind he stayed, a web of lies.)

There is no use for a broken phone,
(or a broken boy,)
pick up the pieces and throw it out
(he picked up the pieces and threw life out.)

Nobody cared about that old, broken phone
(nobody cared about him, scarred and so alone.)
