They Are Just Scared- Written September 1999 (Aged 24)

They Are Just Scared

do not feel alone tonight
it is all right
it is really all right
they try to stamp on your personality
but you do not have to have fight
they try to take away your individuality
and they try to rubbish your sensitivity
but in reality, they are just scared
they cannot hide that in the things they own
or even the makeup they wear
the makeup is just a disguise
that easily reveals they are just scared

James Garratt – September 1999
