Respect the suffering

Respect the suffering respect the hurt

Respect the ones who have crawled in the dirt

Don’t scoff at my pain you didn’t walk in my shoes

You don’t have any idea why I’m broken and bruised

Don’t pretend we’re the same

You don’t know where I’ve been

Don’t know what I’ve lost, so just wipe off that grin

Don’t say its ok, it’ll all be alright

You cant see the demons I fight off at night

All alone in the dark in a room full of shadows

The darkness inside makes you feel like a physco

So just look away, you have nothing to fear

It’ll be like before, like I was never here
