Weight of the world crippling down

Watching, passing, looking, everyone's around

Can't bare the thought of keeping it in

The influence of society tells me to be thin

Sitting, rocking, shaking all in destress

Just to see if I can pass the next test

Don't compare yourself, because you'll never win

The power of my mind has settled in

No one to blame but myself

This has taking over, time to hang me on the shelf
