Society


Everything is perfect
I have no need to be stressed
At least that’s what society is telling me
I have 6 hours of homework for 12 upcoming test
Maybe if i’m lucky I can squeeze in some food this time
If I even fail one test then my grades will fail
Can’t get to college as my grand result

I have no need to be stressed
At least that’s what society is telling me
Can’t get to college
Can’t get a job
Can’t make any money so I can have a family
So Is there really a reason to go on?

I have no reasons to be stressed
At least that’s what society is telling me
I can’t date a virgin because apparently that means shes too hard
But I can date someone who’s had sex because then shes a slut
Can’t date girls with makeup because they are nothing but a fake
Can’t date girls without it because I can’t be with an ugly girl no
So how can I raise a family? If everyone I love is worthless to the world?

I have no reasons to be stressed
At least that’s what society is telling me
I can’t be nice to gay people
Otherwise I’m just the same
Heaven knows If I am nice to a black person
Then society says I’m the one to blame
Equality that’s what they say
But all around I see nothing more but a burdened face

I have no reasons to be stressed
Barely have time to sleep
Barely have time to follow all the rules
My mental health means nothing
As long as i’m not bloody, broken or dead
I’m a man gotta be strong
because If I show i’m weak…
Can’t turn to help can’t do anything

I have no reasons to be stressed
I’m young and I’m not 100% done growing up
But I have to make every big decision now
What job I go after right now
What person I’ll marry right now
Because If I don’t marry young then somethings wrong with me

I have no reasons to be stressed
So why do I….
Why do I….
Wish everything that society says
could all just be make pretend
And I could just wake up
To a place where everything would just be okay
