8 Million.
8 million times
I’ve had 8 million thoughts 8 million breaths 8 million things I don’t even care about
Pass through this body that’s done something 8 million ******* times.
“You’re stupid” has gone through this being 8 million times
“Wow you’re fat”, 8 million times
“You’re never going to make a difference” going through this head.
8 million times.
And when I listened i heard “I’m stupid and fat and I’m never going to make a difference”
8 million ******* times.
I’m not listening now
And you couldn’t pay me to listen to those 8 million voices
Trying to talk to those 8 million people in my head,
They don’t even make sense.
