We see other people's lives
through black and white lines
to skinny
too fat
you stink
you cant
wounding each other again and again
so we don't have to feel our own pain
Lashing out on others too feel some emotion
again and again normalizing the notion
oblivious to what goes on behind the blinds
her parents starve her
and she starves herself
his parents neglect him
And tell him he can't
you add fuel to their fires
And fulfill their desires
crushing others again
for your own selfish gain
