Billy Bystander

My name is Billy,I stand, I watch,They're at it againI feel the pain, Yet!I stand, I watch My name is Billy,I stand, I watch,Glad it's not me, I pretend not to see, Yet!I stand , I watch My name is Billy,I stand , I watchThey look in despairI pretend not to care, Yet!I stand, I watch My name is BillyI stand, I watchBut what can 'I' do?They might turn on me too, Yet!I stand, I watch Well Billy! this is what you do -Wear a mask, be a superhero, wear blue! Don't be Billy anymoreBe your name, one thing I'm sure Speak out, stand up, no need for shame, You're not a Billy, that's not your name!
