I try to keep myself contained
so that I don't hurt others

I long for love
I long for friends
but I do not know
when the change will overcome me

you are manic they say
you are crazy they say

I can't breathe I say
please help me I say

but they all run away
or call the state
or try to shoot me
with the drugged bullets

silver bullets
are no stranger
than my life

I long for love
I long for friends
I try not to let anyone in
for fear that I will hurt them

when I change
