This pill

  There has to be another way
      cause I fear staying will only break me quicker
        I'll snap like a twig 
            therefore I'm consumed by my meds
             Doctors think i'm crazy 
                     Just cause i'm sad
                     A kid is supposed to be happy
                  Atleast that's what they keep telling me 
                        my parents lose sleep cause I won't just pretend
                      Their so stuck being normal
                          that they never realized they made me this way
                               So they should stop alienating me
                                Cause genetics is genetics  
                                  I heard my mom was strung out on weed
                                       before she even knew I was developing in her belly
                                                   Dad was a young Alchoholic 
                                            yet he doesn't understand why I get thirsty
                                                    Now i'm not tryna be like them so don't get me wrong
                                                       It's just that they try to cover it up like they were perfect 
                                                    Cleaned their act up before I was old enough to understand
                                                                  So now I take this pill
                                                                  Doctors claim it will heal me
                                                                     It'll destroy everything that's consuming me
                                                                    Will it make my parents accept me?  
                                                                      Will it make them finally take some of the blame? 
                                                                       Will it make them tell me they love me? 
                                                                                 I doubt it.
