So popular, so unafraid
Top of the chain, who cares how she got there?
Nobody Knows

Smile so bright, her grieving unknown
What she always wanted, her only dream
Never did go quite as planned
Nobody Knows

Goes home at night, weeping till morning
Wishing desperately, her pain too much
Hidden tears lurking behind closed doors, a constant reminder
Nobody Knows

Takes the razor to her wrist
Her one true friend keeping promises
Vehemence fills her veins waiting for an end
Nobody Knows

Overwhelming pressure, never herself
Thrills of popularity, always someone else
Forced to hide and unsure of what to think
Nobody Knows

Goes home, finds daddy’s gun
Caresses it with soft fingertips
Gently, slowly, a brand new friend
Nobody Knows

Put to her temple the big finale
Curtains open, the audience hushed
Her final performance, going out with a Bang
Everyone Knows
