get over yourself!!!


Stay the Same
people tell me i’m so mental
i’m negative and such a devil
kick me when i’m down
make me think there is no other way
hold my breath and make it go away
cause i’m not giving in

told me i was nothing special
so ignorant and just so stressful
i don’t even care about
the shit that breaks me down
i’ve been giving love the gift of sound

i will always stay the same
and no one here can tell me what to say
i won’t ever change
i believe in love to heal my pain
i will never go away
certain things are meant to be that way
i will always stay the same
i will never go away

so i’m a typical example
a bet that no one ever gambled
buried in the ground
give me death or give me all your shame
i never asked to be your point of blame
so you can go away

i fear the signs i can’t go back in time
there is too late, no returns, no repairing my life
so you decide… you won’t even try
i made mistakes over the faith that you are keeping alive
break down, yea just get over it
you make up in your head like every crazy bitch
break down, just get over it
break down, break down
