I AM STRONGER Lyrics:
Apparently you parents really need to listen in
Maybe you should give your kid a little discipline
Instead of lettin’ him act so inconsiderate
You say you’re not the problem the school system is
Well picture this ya as sick as it is
There’s a whole lot of kids who do not wanna live
Searchin‘ up and down the halls for a ritalin fix
Not knowin’ how upset the Vice Principal gets
When he gets another call from another troubled mom
Cryin’ on the phone sayin’ that her son sobs
Askin himself what he did to deserve this
Just because he looks a little different on the surface
Maybe it’s the way he acts or the crazy fact
That his dad passed away last May from a heart attack
He already feels alone and confused
And to top it off he goes to school and gets abused

I am smarter I am stronger!
I will take it no longer!
I have feelings I’m a person!
I will live life with purpose! x2

There was a girl who wore a lot of make up
Every weekend her parents used to break up
Strange people comin’ through the house that would take stuff
She felt ashamed every day from the waist up
She covered up with cover up to try and hide
And sat alone every single day at lunch time
Then came the rumors whispers and gossip
She was too bothered to focus on topics
Grades stared droppin‘ runnin out of options
Kids said she was better off in a coffin
She started to believe thoughts evil as these
Strugglin’ for a reason to breathe
One night someone put a picture on Facebook
Of a cow it said this is how Shay looks
She read it with a tear streamin’ down her cheek
Then she went to sleep permanently she drank bleach

I am smarter I am stronger!
I will take it no longer!
I have feelings I’m a person!
I will live life with purpose! x2

I hope you take the words that I wrote in this song
And use them as the strength that you hold in your palm
When you see a fellow class mate treated in a bad way
Stand up for em and support em like a back brace
No sad face opposite emoticon
I know it’s tough but you gota keep holdin’ on
You feel like you wanna burst like a soda pop
He wasn’t raised right he doesn’t know to stop
Part of growin up is treatin’ folks with respect
It’s not a talent to speak with a vial dialect
I’m not sayin I’m perfect there’s things I regret
But I can do good with all the time I have left
I speak the truth and I believe in you
If you’re not willin’ to change get up and leave the room
I gave you a chance take your evil demons too
But as you walk away this is what we say to you…

I am smarter I am stronger!
I will take it no longer!
I have feelings I’m a person!
I will live life with purpose! x2
