Cryptic Wisdom - 3. If You Knew lyrics

[Intro] It was 1990-something, I was in grade school The other kids made it clear that I ain't cool I hated it, just waking up and getting ready Praying somehow I wouldn't make the bus, man [Verse 1] My family wasn't rich I couldn't rock those new kicks like the other kids My grandmother liked to comb my hair a lot And me, I loved her, so I let her, wouldn't dare to stop If it wasn't the comb over, it was high water slacks An easy target, honourable from front to back But man, my peers wanted me to be Somebody other than myself but I was me And I never was accepted Was beat up on the regular, insulted and neglected You ever had to pa** a crowd, with your eyes down Looking at the ground, cause you know they don't want you around It s**s, but I had to walk to cla** And I was lucky if somebody didn't call me f*g Or knock my papers to the floor as I was pa**ing But if it was you I bet you wouldn't have been laughing [Hook] If you all knew what you do to them inside All the things that they contemplate at night Maybe you'd be a little nicer If it was you with the scars That never fade that were eating you alive Maybe you'd be a little nicer [Verse 2] I've seen the victim turn guilty Become the bully, because his self-esteem was filthy But two wrongs never make a right I know its cliche, but it's true, so take advice This is a vicious cycle, you oughta blame If you've ever seen it happen but you turned away in shame cause Too many people witness the evil And they do nothing about it but sit around looking peaceful That was a chance to be somebody new Report a bully if you know one if he bothers you Cause if you don't, the hate is free, so pick another Who are you to let yourself or somebody close to you suffer This ain't the way that it's supposed to be I'd like to think that if somebody was approaching me I wouldn't have to be alert in fear of being hurt But if it was you I bet you nobody would see a smirk [Hook] If you all knew what you do to them inside All the things that they contemplate at night Maybe you'd be a little nicer If it was you with the scars That never fade that were eating you alive Maybe you'd be a little nicer
