You tell me to try harder,
But you don't tell me how;
If you tell me to do something,
I must do it right now.

It's not as simple as it sounds,
It's not as easy as it might seem,
I just need some help here,
But you're on a different team.

You treat this like a war,
As if I dropped a bomb,
But I'm just trying to talk;
What should I do mom?

Tell me what to do
Because the tears keep on flowing;
My days are getting harder,
And I just can't keep going.

Tell me what to do
Because you don't seem to hear me;
Words are a sign of liberty
But I'm far from free.

Tell me what to do
When the world dims with hate;
When I can't control the panic
And rejection is my fate.

Tell me what to do
When people keep on faking;
When my life goes to ruin,
And death is in my waking.

Tell me what to do
When the voices invade my head;
When I scream at myself to wake up,
But everything is dead.

Tell me what to do
When all my dreams have gone;
When I can't see the beauty,
And when light has left the sun.

Tell me what to do
Before this goes to far;
Hear my silent screaming,
And break my cold, grey bars.

Tell me what to do
Because I carry no bomb.
I don't want to fight;
I just want my mom.
