Corrupt Countries

*Corrupt Countries* 07.11.2013

Bees sting but they are still pretty
Time hurts, we find little reasons to live it

Your mom and you will always clash
And Dad's life could easily become yours

Crazy uncles and aunts are the best
And the smelly, loud outcasts
Make the best friends

The problem with drugs is they numb
We will protect you as much as we can
But pain must slip through eventually, child
Or you'll die ungrown

Your first love will also be your last
At school don't lay your head on desks
Or worry about what the pretty girls think
Your skinny arms and nervousness won't last

When people die they didn't mean it
To leave you hurting like they did
And popularity is just a contest
It's better to be the funny kid

You must eat and drink a lot of water
Learn sweating and crying and coming
Don't ever feel ashamed about your body
And speak up. She may not know she's pretty

Silence is always sharper than words
Subtle sadness and a little loneliness
Sure don't feel right but can be good
Be serious with yourself but humorous
To others

You will be mad. That is a sad fact
We are mad creatures on mad paths
The point is is to study both sides
The mad and those mad at

If you are fucked up and sick
So many ways disorders can tick
Don't let it get you down. Go into it
Become the best twisted and laugh

Rainy weather or sunshine
Grass stains or ocean brine
Ingrown toenails and twisted backs
Stomach empty, stomach fat

If you fight for your country
Only for the money
When you know it's corrupt

If you fight against your country
And spend all your money
Your health, future and sanity
And survive

Don't forget that bees are pretty
When it's only the sting you're seeking

Pain and pleasure, equal measure
Killed countries come from revolutionary kids
