Come see where he lays,
his heart as it bleeds,
See how he cries
as he falls from the insults
we hurl.

Come feel the sting
of the jokes we tell and
the storm in his heart swell.
Feel the burning flame
that devours him from within.

Come see the Boy who wishes
his star would shine and
someone would notice.
