Ignorance and arrogance together make for a frightening foe
Persistence combined with your resistance makes for a tiresome show
If only these infuriated children would take the time to grow
There’s so much in this world none of us know
Though it seems futile trying to make some one wake up let alone see
Seems there are just too few people out there like me
The one’s you just know when you need will be right there to care
Then eternally claiming we are the ones you can’t scare
I wear my invisible invincibles each and every day
I must admit I often wish there was another way
Can’t we finally put an end to all the fights, maybe go outside to play?
Can’t we all let go of our insecurities, stop running the other way, even just once find the courage to stay?
To hold it all together is sometimes harder than you might think
So many of us are out on that ledge, too bloody close to the brink
Just one wrong move and you’ll find your self back in a free fall
So rarely we attempt to lend a hand , too afraid we might fall from our own walls
Why must we choose to keep all our feelings inside?
Why is it we feel safest when we choose to hide?
Could it truly be that people just don’t care enough?
Or do we really think secrets or deception make us look tough?
I really doubt it makes you stronger bottling it all up
Going it alone makes it a bit harder to get back up
Life shouldn’t have to be so damned hard
The best way to win is with a team, everything could be just exactly the way we dreamed!
