What A Mess, All This Less

America once fought oppression and
Later fought itself out of a depression
But now, now all we do is oppress and depress
You're skinny
You're r*******
You're black
You're poor
You're gay
You're fat
You're all less
What a mess
All this less
We should all be a relief to pain
Not mentally beating people with a metaphorical cane
People commit suicide
While our world sits aside
Just raise your voice
It's a simple choice
One comforting word
To one depressed nerd
Can save a life
From the point of a knife
How is America not sick of all this mental strife?
Bullying
Sullying
It's sickening
But America keeps on listening
Pretty soon there won't be anyone left for christening
This world will burn
Right now we are at stage churn
Churning burning
Boiling up
Anger will overflow our country's cup
All this hate that's watsup

The set-up was very interesting, I liked it a lot, easy to follow. The first three lines were brilliant where you talk about America fighting oppression and depression. The way you used the harmful phrases people say is very, very powerful. I like how they are all a line their own. The rhymes are good, they ease the mood a bit. I love the l... (more »)
