Telling a Story

Nobody sees the pain,
Nobody sees the rain.
"Work a little harder,
Be a little smarter."
Thank you so much,
Why didn't I think of that?
"Everything will be ok,
Just give it another day."
Forget walking a mile in my shoes,
Just try a hour in my mind.
See how it feels to always lose,
To always feel unwanted undefined.
Let me tell you how it was for me,
Don't judge me until you see.
I did the best I could,
That's more than you ever would.
Now it's my time to tell the story,
And don't you dare say I'm doing this for the glory.

I don't know what to say, I don't know where to go,
I've never came out before so,
This is my time to tell a story.

Try to imagine if you can,
Living a life like mine.
Being the oldest son of nine,
Oh wait, where's dad?
That's right, he's gone,
Now who gets to be the pawns?
Why care about kids when there's money involved,
And that's how fast a family is dissolved.
Torn in every direction,
I'm just another imperfection.
Now how is a kid to deal with this,
Having his entire life ripped apart?
Dads gone, moms in the abyss,
Now this is the bad part.
Five years strung out on pills just trying to ignore the hurt,
Of always getting freaking treated life dirt.
Don't you dare say you love me now that I'm older,
You lost that chance, now you get to sit back and watch.
Now just when I was getting over this crap,
The one person I loved left with the sound of a clap.
Everyone leaves and nobody cares,
Up all night cutting, guess who's there?

I don't know what to say, I don't know where to go,
I've never came out before so,

Now I could let this destroy me,
Give all these people power over me.
But why would I do that? Why not show them I'm better than all them.
I'll put my life together piece by piece,
My thought of you will only decrease.
I'ma take the rage,
Put it on the page,
Get myself to a better age.
I don't need you now and I never will,
I'm a better man without you.

(Hook)
I don't know what to say, I don't know where to go,
I've never came out before so,
This is my time to tell a story.
