Let's Play Pretend

in my mind i’m screaming to be heard

in my mind i’m demanding respect


in my mind you will listen

in my mind you will care


in my mind i’m done with your toxic shit

in my mind i do something about it


in my mind you are shocked

in my mind you say ‘i’m sorry’


in my mind we can be friends again

in my mind we can be kids again

but they tell me i’ve always had a wild imagination
