Just another dead celebrity
A girl who died back in the eighties
Lost in the fray, the chaos of life
Went down below to meet up with Hades

That boy went too far, he should be blamed
They say it's her fault, and they don't know her at all
But her mother fainted when she found out
And her brother cried when he got the call

Telling people was the hardest part, strangers she barely knew 
They thought they knew everything about the girl
And they thought she was immortal and I guess now she is
But she fell down the rabbit hole, got lost in the whirl

She's a star in the sky, but her light is so dim
Even whennshesngone from us, she's still troubled within
Shesnbeennbrought down one too many times
To ever shine like an angel when she's full of sin

She stayed all shut up, silent and calm
And she never told anybody what went on in her head
But slowly they got to her and hit where it hurt
A beauty, an angel, a sinner now dead


I left school early that day because I just couldn't take it anymore
I couldn't deal with the fake laughter and forgotten smiles
I couldn't stand being ignored
Being spoken over
Being pushed aside
Being forgotten
And it took me crying and having my sister pick me up
Sit in the poetry section of the library with two of my closest friends
It took care, and patience, and choice to realize that I was overanalyzing
I was mind reading
I was letting the monster take control of me
And I couldn't do that anymore
I can't do that anymore
And sometimes you just have to pull yourself back
Look at the world as it is
Take away your bias
And just laugh 
Because we're ridiculous caring about boys we'll soon hate
Talking about who slept with who
And life is ridiculous
But that's what makes it precious
Because there's nothing else quite like it
