Dear SocietyPaint me over.With your words, your rules, your regulations;Your policies, contracts,your abominations.Suffocate me.With your lies, judgments, sins,infatuations;Your hate, your order, your secret combinations.Stifle creativity, unravel joy,Throw around common senseLike it's just a toy.Redefine our limits, standards,Color outside the lines.You are in charge, not those who designed you,So go ahead and polish 'til you shine.Once you've gone and had your fun,You'll be completely smooth.Of course, it's better for everyone,No ugly semblance of truth.It'll be just as Montag said,Nothing to bother us.Nothing to hinder us.So I'm just here to say:I'm done fighting you.I don't want to anymore.So I'm giving you permission.You can wipe me across the floor.After all, I'm just an air bubble,Standing between you and total control.I'll just sit back as you crush me,Watching society take its own toll.
This Broken SocietyThis Broken SocietyWho knew?That someone so quiet was so emotionalThat someone so loud was so delusionalThey always try to keep to themselvesThey need attention from everyone elseDid you know?That someone who seems so normal could be so insaneThat someone who is so crazy would seem more behavedThey have unmentionable thoughts drawn in bloodstainsThey are just misunderstood and always out of placeI didn't knowThat someone who is skinny has so many problemsThat someone who is fat there's nothing really wrong with themThey open the door of self consciousness and gives them a warm welcomeThey live this life with no worries and embraces the true freedomWe never would have knownThat someone whose straight always expressed so much hateThat someone whose gay has so much bottled up painThey always seem to have that one endless predictable traitThey don't know how much longer they're shoulders can handle this weightWho knew?That someone so smart always finds themselves feel
Society.Society is the cruelest of people.She praises those who are familiar with her sisters, wealth and fame.But she puts down those who are close to her brothers, Shame and poverty.She makes the brave and strong into the poor and lame with her silver tongue. Her laugh hurts the souls of what she calls "Lower class." as she laughs with her favored "Upper class".Her smile startles the lower class, they ask "Why must you look at me so?" And she sarcastically replies "No reason."She is a tyrant in a easily manipulated world, who can only be stopped by her elders, war and death.
Casualties Of SocietyBeneath the surface things look strangeThese thoughts I've learned to hideI don't have time to think of changeSo these thoughts sleep deep insideThey wake while I'm alone in bedThough I want them gone they stayEvery truth they show just brings me dreadTruth transcends my shade of grayI can block them out while I'm movingLife distracts me from the painWhen it looks like things are improvingThen I'm held back by the chainIts the one lifestyle I've ever knownAnd I'm bound like a tattooI can't break this cycle on my ownThis one thing I cannot doBeing trapped can have its ups and downsYou get used to the routineNow I'm used to living life with clownsWhat could be remains unseen
SocietySociety can be many things, like a hydra has many heads.Society can be the most extensive family tree.Society can be the most extravagant party.Society can be the most fearsome of beasts.Society can be the most compassionate Samaritan.Society can be a grotesque monster.Society can be a truly destructive army.Society can be a virus.Society is the ultimate torture device.An iron maiden, rack and a brazen bull all in one.For me.
Society, What Have You Done?I am not the prettiestNor skinniest am II am not the giggly girlWith the sparkle in her eyeNo, for I am meThe girl of autumn windThe girl with whom societyHas mangled, burned and skinnedThe angry world is twistedIt beams it's deceiving eyeIt laughs as we all cringeWither, rot, and cryIt takes away our powerIt strips us to the boneIt laughs and laughs and laughsIts evil mind has shoneFor we are never perfectIn such an ugly placeBut please, Im beg of you- Just once...Your lies may I erase....?
