they spend their days bullying but I am not happy
then wonder why people take their own lives to be freed
it affects others, or it doesn’t, but it’s clear to see
if you’re saying all this stuff, you clearly don’t like me

teachers say they care, but turn a blind eye
while children are suffering and cry every night
it’s not just your fault, you could have done something
but instead you let the kid believe they should die

maybe I should kill myself
if that teaches you a lesson
or maybe it will at least
make sure that people listen
