Spoken like a speech
When I was growing up there were some kids
And these kids, they never treated me right, I mean
All these other kids were friends with them, and sat with them,
I had to sit with them in English class because that's where my teacher put me
And looking back on it
I wish I could have gotten up and yelled at these kids because
they made my life a living hell!
It was stupid shit, everything from telling me I had pen ink all over my face,
to tearing up my poems.
Maybe if they had taken the time to read one of my poems
they would have realized what they were actually doing.
Maybe they would of realized just how badly they got to me.
Man, I give props to any kid who's ever sat through that kind of abuse.
To any kid that sat there and took it, and to any kid that stood up
and punched that mother-fucker straight in the jaw.
Because I didn't deserve any of that,
And if I didn't deserve it,
You sure as hell didn't.


Vocals One
They stare at him, his bloodshot eyes
covered by bangs and secrets, his disguise
The executioners share their beliefs
Queue the unwanted controversy
They crave the drama from his plea

Vocals Two   (He'll insist he'll be alright)
Vocals One Curses said, coffins aligned
Vocals Two (He'll insist he'll be alright)

Vocals One
He hasn't slept at all in weeks
Humiliations haunt his dreams

Beat to the point he's on his knees,
He sits at night bent over a pen
And he writes:

If I die, please know I tried to survive
I only wanted a way out,
It's impossible to trust one now
I don't know if I'll make it this time

He doesn't touch the drugs
he so desperately needs,
Instead he writes away their sin.
The antidote isn't in sight
Here's to another day, another sleepless night
He's writing of the world that's caving in

Hold me back,
Tell me I'm wrong
Vocals Two (It shouldn't end this way, life shouldn't get this way)
Vocals One Heat-sickened impulse, once it starts it won't stop
Vocals Two (Hold me back) (Tell me I'm wrong)
Vocals One It shouldn't end this way, life shouldn't get this way

He hasn't slept at all in weeks
Humiliations haunt his dreams

Beat to the point he's on his knees,
He sits at night bent over a pen
And he writes

If I die, please know I tried to survive
I only wanted a way out,
It's impossible to trust one now
I don't know if I'll make it this time

Vocals One or Two. Softer, and slowed down
They need to let up
he's had more than enough.
He's falling back into the black abyss.
Concealed inside, emotions died
He only wanted a way out.

Vocals One
They stare at him, his bloodshot eyes
covered by bangs and secrets, his disguise
The executioners share their beliefs
He only wanted a way out.

Screams He made it out!

Vocals One
He hasn't slept at all in weeks
Humiliations haunt his dreams

Beat to the point he's on his knees,
He sits at night bent over a pen
And he writes

If I die, please know I tried to survive
I only wanted a way out,
It's impossible to trust one now
I don't know if I'll make it this time

Vocals Two (He'll insist he'll be alright)
Vocals One Curses said, coffins aligned
Vocals One or both He'll insist he'll be alright
Wrote this with the kind of Black Veil Brides feel + Hawthorne Heights vocals. Feedback on this would be EXTREMELY appreciated because I'm trying to expand my styles and vocab again, since rap mainly took over.
Thanks!

Life doesn't have to suck~

beautiful words describing such heartache. that's an antidote to the abuse, for sure. i look at your pic and it amazes me how anyone could want to be cruel to you. but you know, i guess you might get a bigger dose than average people since you probably cause greater jealousy in haters. i can't critique music, sorry, but your words are powerful. they should have impact and cause change in basically decent people who might be tempted to be cruel. cruel people are that way because of the misery inside of them. when they abuse others, it has nothing to do with the other's actions. and, yes, as a schoolboy, i got picked on by Davy Potter every day who thought his gangster brothers would back him. i busted him right in the nose. heard all day how i was gonna be in trouble when the brothers caught up to me. they did. asked me why. told them. they just laughed and started patting me on the back!

This song is really powerful. Did you write a melody, too? Because I want to sing it. (Or is it meant to be rap, in this case... I guess there's no melody to the text...)

This was originally written as a rock styled song. I haven't actually recorded anything for it yet though

The spoken part at the beginning feels like it's a little too long. Not long enough that it doesn't fit, but still just a little too long. (I hope that makes sense).

But I love this. I would certainly love to hear it sung someday. :)

It does seem kind of long reading it, but in my mind it's actually a lot shorter than it seems I think o.O It sounds good in my head at least XD
I wanted it to try and be really personal/hit hard for people that have gone through this kind of thing. The beginnings all shit people put me through back in school, so I kind of just let loose and wrote from the heart there.

Nonetheless thank you soo much for the feedback!!!

Yeah. It definitely did hit me pretty hard.

Like I said, it doesn't seem like it doesn't fit with the song.

You're very welcome. This is a great song.

I'm not to fussy on the spoken part in the beginning, but everything after that is amazing! I could so see this becoming a hit song. That would so be a song I'd want to listen to over and over again!

I liked the spoken, and had more of a music video type thing in my mind. I wanted it to try to hit some people really close to heart, and figured the beginning made it a bit more powerful/emotional. That was my intent at least.

Thank you though, very very much for the feedback!!!! <3

I can understand that. It really is very emotional, and would definitely hit home with some people. Mind you, I know I said I wasn't too fussy on it, but I do like it. I'm just not sure it fits to well with the song....Of course, there are probably parts of my fave songs that I don't like as much as the rest of the song, it doesn't mean anything. Either way, you are very talented.

You're welcome. Sorry for the novel-length reply lol

no worries at all on the length, I'm really glad you took the time/didn't mind reading through and reviewing this!!! The feedback really helps for writing ones later on, or editing/perfecting pre-made pieces, so I really do appreciate it!!
I'll agree with you though on that one point, since there are a few songs I know of that do have sections that don't fit or stand out strongly compared to the rest of the lyrics.
And thank you again <3
