Maybe I'm twisted

I'm out of my mind

All I know is I'm pouring my heart

into every line

Right now 

I'm corny

But this is my life

and all I have is time

Robbed me every honest feeling

voices in my head keep singing

Why won't you let us be?

Think about all your little jokes

The words you said to us

All your impressions

No second chances

I guess you think it's our fault

I was doing my best

I'm your little creation

Chasing standing ovations

And the love you couldn't give

Reeking with obsession

anxiety and depression

Who dares to lift their head and sing

We are just the monsters

You made us be
