Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

There is this girl
Who’s been beaten down and thrown apart
Yet everyday she carries herself to school
With nowhere left to start
Her world has crashed and burned
Teardrops falling from her eyes
From all the stupid people
That filled her head with lies
They told her she’d be successful
They told her she’d find the one
But can they see her life now
She is finally done
I guess that things
Were never meant to be
And with me being this girl
Life has finally become reality
