Wretched and Unwanted

Wretched, unwanted
Pushed to the sidelines, kicked to the ground and stunted
Naked, unsightly
Alone in the covers, nonetheless rejected nightly

Thus, another day begins
For the mind of a boy in an old man’s skin
And every glance says “what a dreadful mistake you are”

Wretched, unwanted
Daft and unable to live up to all you’ve fronted
Naked, unsightly
Alone in the covers and somehow rejected nightly

Thus, another day begins
So all aboard that train

If your life’s a falling elevator, fast approaching ground
And your eyes, a deep, dark well
No one wants their Baby Jessica falling down
If you’re sickened by the face that you see in the mirror
Get up and shake it all around
If you want love and you can’t find any
