I am a fine person...
smart, witty, and pretty.
I am the kind who does not need pity.
When something goes wrong...
Press the button to be strong.
I walk into the room and they stare,
but I am shy and l act like l don't care.
I think they cannot see the despair
behind the smile l often wear.
Fractured by years of torture and fears...
Press the button to hide my tears.
A daily dive into the memories that l hold,
the wretched routine that is out of control.
Rewinding the tape won't undo the mistakes
Fast forward to the end to see if it's a trend.
Play pretend with the voices in my head
l don't know what is real...
what l see or what l feel.
They only operate on is it love or hate
No middle ground...
Press the button to find a new mate.
If this world is only an illusion
then l must accept fate not force a solution
I open my eyes but am l awake?
Every day is always the same...
