ntering a hated place
I don't want to see their face
So much joy comes when I leave
But when I'm there, with anger I seeth

I wonder what it'll be like this time
It was so bad before
I wonder if I will survive
I started death last time

So many people
No one I want to see
Stupidity and drama
There, it exists to be

Clear eyes make me sad sometimes
Clear eyes make me feel despise
As I watch I have to laugh
I laugh to cover up the loss of hope

--Verse 2--
I hate that there are two sections
Positive and negative
I have to deal with side effects
Even though all of them make me sick

I don't want to go back to this place
My freedom ends so soon
I don't want to start hating again
But I have no choice in this place
