about

A Heartfelt account of being bullied through the eyes of both male and female perspectives. A journey into the mind of a young person being othered. There was once a young boy in elementary school who was bullied because of his living in poverty and the shoes that he wore. Another boy in his class witnessed this and I'm sure by some influence from his family and his own kind heart, decided to give the young boy a new pair of his shoes to prevent him from being bullied further. That man who gave up his new shoes has since passed away and this song is dedicated to him and any kid out there that feels like they are alone in a crowded room. RIP Brendan Bon Garnish.

lyrics

Verse 1: Even though nobody knows his position, that doesn't stop em from talking a lot and using words as ammunition, it's the new guy , look at him he smells funny, and at the break we sticking him up for lunch money, teachers see it , know the situation well, but that song they always sing is like a symphony from hell, not knowing what he's going through at home, in a room full of people you can still feel so alone, they say the rhyme and the damage is dealt, rides the bus with the other kids, but sits by himself, they gonna miss me when I'm gone man I'm outta here, out of fear, catch me in the afterlife, your words have no power here, but then he thinks about the love from his brother, he's got his back matter of fact, they look after each other, they always have from drug addicted mom to missing dad, and these bullies at school gotta family that he wish he had, there's a reason he aint sleeping , so he grabs a piece of paper and a pen and he writes, please don't let em tease me I'm sick of the fights, I don't Nikes, I'd settle for a pair of those british Knights.

Chorus: I Don't want to be at Home, I just want to be alone, nothing more to say, they hurt me anyway, words like weapons, Now you see me and I'm grown, hate filled me and made me strong, I am here today, music is the way, Words like weapons.

Verse 2: It wasn't the status that mattered to her but the shoes to matter to them cuz they at it again, another door slammed, poor from a broken home so she sits alone working on her vocal tones, she sent a picture to him while she was a bit tipsy, it spread quickly, now her names up in black jiffy, glory to shame, more of the same, now they only call her whorew and other horrible names, so she, uses her inner voice to kill the outer demons, all the doubts and how she thinks about leaving, it's a quick way to end my pain but I would never want any of my family feeling the same. spit on and picked on and hit on, the shits wrong and if this song can lift one we show them we thins strong, and in this life you've gottta do what you gotta do, she hides her tears and her scars under prada shoes

Chorus: I Don't want to be at Home, I just want to be alone, nothing more to say, they hurt me anyway, words like weapons, Now you see me and I'm grown, hate filled me and made me strong, I am here today, music is the way, Words like weapons.

So I , use everything little bit of what they did to me, archeologist making meaning out of history, jot it down make a video for kids to see that you can get to victory doing it individually, so i gotta stay committed to the pinnacle, I know a little bit of what it is you've been through bro, they start to see what they've been missing been invisible, his mind no longer under control by the physical, finally convinces them and then he gets em home ,laces em up them they feel invincible, putting them into a magazine, shoot em down , no casualties, there come a time when you gotta leave and move along, rest in peace to Bon here's a peaceful song, now I live life without a single minute to lose, I've come to find it has nothing to do with shoes

This song is dedicated to Brendan Bon Garnish for giving a scrubby kid a pair of shoes when every one else was just quick to judge, salute homie

Chorus: I Don't want to be at Home, I just want to be alone, nothing more to say, they hurt me anyway, words like weapons, Now you see me and I'm grown, hate filled me and made me strong, I am here today, music is the way, Words like weapons. Words like weapons.
