I have what I need to break this down
So, boy, you better start your coming around
A hammer and a saw are all I need
cuz I already know I’m gonna succeed
These walls you built to keep others out
Are just waiting for the day they’ll be torn down

You’ve been keeping people out; hiding inside
But you’re not safe from what’s in your mind
You think badly of yourself; you’re weak and poor
But you should know life has no score

No matter who you are or where you are
You just gotta believe that you’re gonna go far
Cuz even if you’re nobody’s son
Just keep your head up, and life will go on

just a little something i wrote when i was bored :) it's just saying to be yourself, no matter how misunderstood you feel, and never give up because things are always changing.i wasn't sure what to put this under so i just put it as "other." i know the rhyme scheme is really lame, but this was just an on-the-go sort of thing :)
