High School

Looking around the room
starring into space
There's hatred in the air
And people in competition like a race

Mind is running nonstop
Yet it is empty
Head full of thoughts
But nothing on paper

There's rumors waiting to be spread
And your every move is watched
Lust mistaken for love
And every fight wanted a rematch

It's like never ending war
Even if you're a bystander
You're placed into a mess
Soon as your eyes wander

Smoke is the oxygen
As we toast our drinks
Diseases travel faster than the truth
With this pressure who will rise, who will sink?
