It is always someone else
There is always a stranger to pick on.
All is well in the pack
Until something out of the ordinary happens.
Sick babies used to be thrown off the cliff,
Crazies were banished off the land,
Or kept out of the village’s business.
These days it is not so different.
You are addicted to substance everybody knows is bad?
Your own fault, go and burn your mind ‘til there’s nothing left,
But don’t come close to my house.
You couldn’t handle life and tried to kill yourself?
It must be your weak nature, grow up already.
Crazies are still kept away, aren’t they?
Isolation and blame, however, never work well.
It only keeps the pain alive,
No one seems to think that this can happen to them as well.
