Edthepoet

You're thinking of someone else

Less than minimum wage now
Is what she's getting paid
To spend 8 hours a day
Pretending to be a human being
Pretending to fit in
All she wants to do is stand out
In a poetic kinda way
Now she sounds pretentious
No matter what she says

Whatever you think you need from her
Go and get it for yourself
She don't need your charity
Your pity or your help
And who ever it is, you think I am You're thinking of someone else.
I'm not gonna buy it man
That shit you're tryin'a sell.

The price of a dream or 5 now
Is how much she's sacrificed
To the demons in her mind
Pretending everythings alright
Pretending life's just fine
All she wants to do is shout
Coz it's not going her way
Sounds like she wants attention
No matter what she says

Whatever you think you see in her
Go and see it for yourself
Put away your sanctity
Your pity and your help
And who ever it is, you think I am You're thinking of someone else
In not gonna buy it man
That shit you're tryin'a sell.
