Another day goes by
Depression sets in 
No one knows or even cares
I sit alone at a table 
Where my friends used to be
They were the cause of my problem
Nothing was a solution
When I get away
Ill start over
A brand new me

Im to ugly to see
My skin is to pale for it to tan
My eyes are a yucky blue
Like the sky when it rains
My hair is a yellow brown
Alittle shorter than what used to be

As I go through another day 
Depression sets in again
My friend has new friends
I’m no longer one
I’m alone 
The room shifts to a dark corner
Clasterphobic as I am 
I close my eyes and count to seven
What my mom taught me when she locked me in the closet back then
Count to seven and it will be gone
You’d think id learn by now 
It does not work

I am scared
A fear that something is there to get me
The walls get closer
The floor caves in
I fall into the basement
Another dark room
A fear of moving
A scream from my mouth goes silent
I wake up still in the small room 
I walk out

After a while depression sets in
The smell of blood lingers
Im bleeding out of my nose
All over the floor
I mop it up
I finally sit and listen to the music that made me
The music that everyone said was like a god
I think
My mind travels far away 
Then I go
I leave and ill never come back to this 
Messed up earth
