I was going to share something important but...
I was going to ask for help but...
I just needed someone to listen but...
I needed a hug from someone safe but...
I am not important, I was told to never speak
my words are worthless whispers used to seal my defeat
Repeat the blame, the acts and shame, the hurts and constant battle
My needs denied and forced to hide this life I just can't handle
Away I'm tossed, I fail, I've lost, do I pursue defense
or close my eyes and finally sleep to ever wake, my end
This lonely man can't understand the curse with which I face
This boy who stands beside him cries, though neither have a place
We tried to say our last goodbyes but really...
We came to you to bare our pains but...
you didn't have the time.
The statistics? 1 in 4, 1 in 6?
...then there's me the imaginary number
