You wanna tell me it's not that hard to take?
You barely know of the thousand lies they make
They laugh, I cry, you talk (Why?)
You wanna say to me, "Don't let it get to you"?
Just stop believing that words could heal my scars
They laugh, I cry, you talk (Why?)

Hold me back, keep me in my place
It's harder to take with a fist in my face

Just let me stand my ground (Let me fight the war)
You'll never hold me down (You don't listen anymore)
You'll never know the things I've gone through (I've nowhere to go)
It's hard being me, but it's better than being you

You wanna tell me that I'm the one to blame?
I'm heading home with the broken bones again
Would you care if I lost my life tonight?
You wanna say to me, "Don't fight back"?
I turn around, but I just can't walk away
They follow me round, just to beat me down!

Forgetting everything you said before
It's harder to take with my face on the floor

Just let me stand my ground (Let me fight the war)
You'll never hold me down (You don't listen anymore)
You'll never know the things I've gone through (I've nowhere to go)
It's hard being me, but it's better than being you

*Guitar Solo*

Just let me stand my ground (Let me fight the war)
You'll never hold me down (You don't listen anymore)
You'll never know the things I've gone through (I've nowhere to go)
It's hard being me, but it's better than being you
It's hard being me, but it's better than being you!

I wrote this in about couple of hours in some free periods I had today. More stuff about school life, this time it's about being on the receiving end of bullying, and the staff not really knowing how bullies work, or giving particularly effective remedies. Basically just how I feel about the whole thing right now.

Very nice, It speaks loud and clear. and if your being bullied, take my advice.... ignore them, don't let it get to you. i know it seems impossible, but if its verbal, well sticks and stones my friend. but if its physical, well sometimes its best to take care of it yourself, or if that fails, tell an adult.

c4c?
new in my sig

Cheers,

This piece is very powerful, it's just being the bigger person. great piece.
I love the lines in the first verse
"They laugh, I cry, you talk (Why?)"
That along with the chorus makes the piece for me.
I would love to hear a recording of this as a full band song.
Keep up the work.

Thanks for the support, dude. It doesn't actually happen anymore, but it did happen a lot a few years ago. =)

Again, dont focus on it too much, I was bullied until i stood up for myself, things changed after that. people stopped messing with me, and i became a semi productive member of society.
