The pool of close friends turned into a sea of empty faces
But the only one that seems to be suffering is you
As you watch a stream of smiley faces from a screen secretly wishing you were still in the picture
You were never their favorite though; they never loved you more than they loved each other
After a faint pathetic hallucination, you remember that you left the situation for a good reason
But if you’re an empty shell and they are empty shells, then why not be empty shells together?
Oh, oh no, you thought you were different from those empty shells
You acted as if you knew right from wrong but if all of you were wrong then what was ever right?
“Stand your ground, even if you’re standing alone”
But why should anyone have to stand alone?
Isn’t it a human desire to want to belong?
Who says we are supposed to be alone?
Trying to decide who is friend or foe
Ultimately locking everyone out because they don’t seem to fit
In the puzzle that we created but can’t figure out where the pieces belong
The worst time to stand alone is when you’re standing your ground
That’s when you’re exposing your most vulnerable intimate parts in hopes of inviting others to join
You in the fight, I mean your quest for righteousness
But you’re still left alone,
Casted off into the shadows because you’ve exposed the truth
They never loved you
Hell they didn’t even like you for all you know
They were just faking the funk to get what they want
But then again, you always knew in the wilderness of your mind
That you stood alone, you slept alone, you ate alone, you laughed alone
But you were never really alone, because even when you were alone
You still had your friend, Loneliness
It kept you company throughout the years
Appearing and disappearing at the right times
