" if your living, but do not act as one should when they are alive, then you are simply dead inside, and filling in empty space. So take risks, be reckless, the world will scorn you anyways so why not it be by your own causing "

There are certain men that wear fake smiles
laugh fake laughs
and have eyes that wander
These men are not easy to find
Until they’re sins are recognized
Beneath deep sheets
And in dark corners
These men they lurk
And seek sad horrors

If you knew what your neighbors do
Or what the gardener has done before
Would you be surprised?
Or is this world so corrupted we should all just run and hide?

It is these men who create fear
And cause the endless, unfixable tears
Of young girls, and even boys
Who are too scared to tell a soul
The secrecy is a main tool
Of a lie that’s told so cruel
You tell I will do this and this
And that and that
So keep it shut
And that’s a fact

I plead with every one of you
Too keep eyes always open
Even when your with the ones
Who said they’d never hurt you
You never know what strangers do
Until its done to you
And then your left broken there
A number on his list
Protect your self
No matter what
don’t be afraid to use your fists
