If My Tears Run Black

If my pillow is always wet,
Does it make me depressed?
If my ways are set,
Does it make me obsessed?

If my hair is black, my eyes with liner,
Am i any different then you?
Just because i prefer to be at home and haven't seen "the diner",
Should they treat me as they do?

Just because my nails aren't pink but the phantom's dye,
Does that make what they say true?
If i was to tell this world goodbye,
Would someone miss me? What would they do?

If i spend my precious hours in a daydream,
Doesn't mean i'm wasting my life, why can't you see?
What if i'm really not as i seem,
Could you get to know the real me?
