Chalk It Up to Apathy


As a kid
I'm expected
To be something
And now that I'm older
I realize I'll never be anything at all
I'm strung out and fed up with the strain
I get more anxious as each day passes
It feels like I can't win
I'm growing up and giving in
And you know what?
It hurts
"You just need to try,"
You know I do
You're under my skin
And I'm letting you fester
But it still feels like I can't win
I'm getting worse
And I might die of boredom if you don't kill me first
I realize I had every chance
I've been given every opportunity
I never thought I'd be nothing at all
And it hurts
