Breaking Away

Heard whispers float around
Sacrifice your peers to live
All driven to the ground
Why would I stay?

Even if they are friends
It matters not at all
Means justified by the ends
The scars all multiply

Left an outcast
Among the freaks
Safe within
My mask of indifference

Alone I stand against
The constant warfare
I smile freely 
As they fight all the while

I'm breaking away from the life they serve me
Leaving to die those who don't deserve their
Lives

I'm breaking away from the fighting and lying
Political waste replicates in their dying
Eyes

I'm breaking away from what is defined as
Normal, I find it's all a great waste of 
Time

I'm breaking away from the curse of society
Outcast among outcasts, no one to me matters but
I
