I cope through rebellion

It’s as if I NEED to learn the hard way

Hoping that it won’t make the pain stay

Self-destruction some might say

It seems that when I hurt I just don’t care

Despite knowing that to the people I love, it’s not fair

So I use rebellion to cope with what’s not there

No one would understand if I dare share

In my heart is where the feelings reside

But my actions give me up no matter how hard I’ve tried to hide

I cope through rebellion when it feels inside I’ve died
