You looked so good from outside
From my safe place to hide
You turned into a monster!

I, I was sick of ordinary folks you see
I was sick of ordinary folks like me
I was dumb! I was young!

That day, I learned something so true
Even normal people look like you
When they’re scared! When our skin is bare!

Time seemed like a vision
People came and went like ghosts.
Walking through the walls I’d put up,
Around me, to protect me.
Whenever they come near, I just feel more alone!
