The Lyrics

Throughout my (short) life i have experienced almost every sort of bullying imaginable. At school, in the street, even on the school bus. One way i like to try and get over some of the hell is to write stuff that makes it look like i'm "gonna make you all pay". Enjoy.
How the hell'd I wind up in this?
Why ain't I able?
To see the signs through the mist?
Of hell and hatred
I wish you'd unclench your fists
And forget that cruel name
Lately there's been too much of this
But don't think I'm down yet

Nothing's wrong,
Just as long as you know that someday I will...

Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know your wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.
Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well I'd hoped that since we're here any way
We could end up saying
Things we've always needed to say
To make up for this fighting
Now the story's played out like this
Just like fresh out of the movies
Lets rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a schoolyard horror

Nothing's wrong,
Just as long as you know that someday I will...

Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know your wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.
Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know you're wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.

Why the hell'd I wind up in this?
Why ain't I able?
To see the signs through the mist?
That showed me hatred
Now the story's played out like this
Just like fresh out of the movies
Lets rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a schoolyard horror

Nothing's wrong,
Just as long as you know that someday I will...

Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know your wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.
Someday, somehow,
Gonna make you all pay but not right now
I know you're wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.
I know your wondering when
You're the only ones who know that.
I know your wondering when

I thought it was ok....the pacing was a little off. I think it would've been better if you had changed more of the words, especially in the chorus.

DKTOS, so can't vote. Now I'm homeschooled, but before I went to a private school, which tend to have less bullies. There was a kid in fifth grade who tied my shoelaces together once and filled my water bottle with toilet water. Although he was much more of a prankster than a bully; He did both of these things while I wasn't noticing.

Thx for comments. when i was writing this i noticed that a lot of the lyrics (particularly: I wish you'd unclench your fists) already reflected what i was on about, so there wasn't much left to do, really.

Awwww, that is good. The part about "forget that cruel name" in the first verse! now that says something (I have experienced name-calling in some of its most evil forms). yeah, very cool.
