Can't you hear the voices?Can't you hear the voices?As they ring inside my headCan't you see the faces?Painted in the blood so redCan't you taste the poison?As it rests upon your tongueCan't you hear the voices?No?Then you do not belong.
And Daddy always lied.My legs are covered in bruisesAnd I have a scar by my left eye.I’m not allowed to smile, thoughAnd I’m not allowed to cry.I think my right arm’s brokenBut shh, don’t tell my dad.He doesn’t like to worry bout meWhen he’s already mad.I have a burn on my left wristFrom when he pushed my armAgainst the stove, the hot, hot stoveAnd did a bit of harm.I have a bear, a teddy bear.He doesn’t have a name.He makes me better every timeI’m feeling hurt and shame.Today, my dad came home kind of lateA beer still in his hand.I closed my eyes and waited.He screamed, he shouted, and…Well, my name is Mary StarrAnd this is how I died.But daddy always loved me.And daddy always lied.
Does that make me Different?I wear make up. Does that make me fake?I cry. Does that make me emo?I have male friends. Does that make me slutty?I smile a lot. Does that make me weird?I laugh loud. Does that make me preppy?I have anxiety. Does that make me a freak?I have Bipolar Disorder. Does that make me abnormal?I respect people. I change for me, and only me. I have a past, but I know I have a future.Does that make me different?Maybe.But at least it makes meMe.
CastleCome with me, little girlLet's watch the rose pedals fallLet's bury your castleAnd put up a brick wallLets rip off your butterfly wingsAnd place them in your graveThe demons have come to get youYou better start to behaveCome with me, little girlFor you can only have the gown for an hourDo they love you, or love you not,Ripping pedals off a flowerCome with me, little girlLet's open your scarsAnd bury your castle,In the girl you no longer are...
