The One That's Left Out
The afterthought, the Kevin McAllister
The living ghost in a room full of dying pretenders
The one who is never asked to dance
The lone wolf rejected from the pack
It's hard being the one that's left out
When everyone is accounted for, everyone except for you
It's as though you do not count as a person
It's as though you do not exist
I think I'd rather be hated by all, than simply be forgotten or missed
Shout at me, tell me you hate me!
Punch me, berate me!
Get red in the face at the very sight of me!
Just please don't express apathy toward me!
Sometimes I wonder if it's just silly doubts
And other times that it could be people's own battles
But when I see the crowd leave without me
My fears and doubts are confirmed, again and again
