I’m sorry that I’m bad at being cool

I was never that, not even in school

Being human, I’m not too good at it

A little too off, not quite pragmatic

I checked my whole body, no zipper yet

Know it seems off, but I often think about that

See, I’m this light, as bright as a star,

And kind as only an angel can be-

But, my smile’s deceiving,

And I never stopped feeling

Like somehow, the problem is me.

I lie awake again,

voices tell me I’m too deep

It is almost 5 am again,

and I still haven’t been to sleep

Resigned to my fate,

a battle I will probably never win

Cause I’m just really fucking awful,

At being a human.

Integrity Please

You’ll lie til the morning light

You won’t give up your drama fight

What do you have to prove

When I already love you for you ?

I mean I already know the truth

What more do I have to do ?

You can talk until your face turns blue

But this dark cloud’s staying over my mood

You think you’re protecting me

But really you’re neglecting me

Because when you’re dishonest

There’s no way to do so respectfully

If only you would listen, please

Instead of trying to play around

Just amp up your integrity.
