We want your honest opinion,
Not some made up b******* to make me happy
Or what you think we want to hear.
No I want the down to God’s blessed earth truth,
Just leave out your sugar coated words

Because I really do want to know
What you think of
All 798 sides of me
You can’t leave out a single one,
Because we aren’t like the rest of you,
With your starched white doctor coats,
And scratching pens on clipboarded pages.
We’re lab rats waiting to be tested.

I don’t know WHO I am!
Sometimes (meaning rarely) I am myself.
And what that is, I have no idea!
Go ask the lady who gives me 17 different pills every day.

We want your honest opinion
It might just save me, us, them,
There’s just
Too many voices… opinions.
But all I want is just one, yours.
What do you think should be done to us?
I know what you’re thinking,
“Lock-um-up and throw away the key!” right?
But really it might be easier to leave me
On some deserted island with only
My insanity to keep me company_!

But you really don’t know do you?
You’re standing there biting your fingernails
Down to nothing but broken stubs,
Talking amongst yourselves.
I try to wait patiently,
While inside me wants to jump up
And rip your d*** heads off!
We just want your honest opinion
I didn’t mean to cause a fuss,
I just wanted to create a riot!
Then I’ll laugh over… absolutely nothing.

Help me!
I didn’t want to be this way,
I don’t belong,
I’m not trusted.
I just need to hear the truth.
Don’t coddle my faults,
Black out my bad words,
You can’t erase the past
So you might as well embrace the future!

We want your honest opinion
Life is hard enough without liars,
Even though I am one myself.
I will control all of this!
Let’s see who the crazy lab rat in then!

We want your honest opinion
Then we’ll leave you alone… maybe.
I can’t promises anything
Half the time she doesn’t know what she is saying
But he does,
While this one could care less
I can’t concentrate

I need help
Your lying syntax whispers to me as I try to sleep
I swallow 17 pills a day to go alone with
My crappy meals because
We aren’t good enough
Never good enough!
We just want your honest opinion.
Please just tell me!
I just want your honest opinion!
