she walks with her head so high she can't even touch the ground
her scholarship didn't provide wisdom beyond college now
her parents feel funny, they know what's best for her
she wouldn't listen now she's crying right beside them

*ooh's and aahs for the first chorus*

all it takes is just one night to turn yourself into a whore
intoxicated hazing's to ruin 18 years or so
her father can't help crying from the loss of his little girl
he tried so hard to warn her now it's too late listen

one young poet walks away and another won't believe your shame
realize we fade away and embrace the dawn of a coming day
let go of the volatile and hope someone comes to your grave
if you didn't impact someone's life believe me you've wasted your own

we need to break down and accept fate as it is dealt to us
we're always too busy trying to cheat the obligatory
it's funny how we seem to feign so much sincerity
and prolong with hope and love, living artificially

one young poet walks away and another won't believe your shame
realize we fade away and embrace the dawn of a coming day
let go of the volatile and hope someone comes to your grave
if you didn't impact someone's life believe me you've wasted your own
