Dear Diary:

Mood: Apathetic.

My life is spiraling downward.
I couldn't get enough money to go to the
Blood Red Romance and Suffocate me dry concert.
It sucks 'cause they play some of my favorite songs
Like "Stab My Heart Because I Love You" and
"Rip Apart My Soul" and of course,
"Stabeddy Rip Stab Stab".
And it doesn't help that I couldn't
Get my hair to do that flippy thing either.
Like that guy from that band can do.
Some days you know...

'I'm an emo kid, non-conforming as can be
You'd be non-conforming too if
You looked just like me
I have paint on my nails and make-up on my face
I'm almost emo enough to start shaving my legs
'Cause I feel real deep when I'm dressing in drag
I call it freedom of expression,
Most just call me a fag
'Cause our dudes look like chicks,
And our chicks look like dykes
'Cause emo is one step below transvestite!

Stop my breathing and slit my throat
I must be emo
I don't jump around when I go to shows
I must be emo

I'm dark, and sensitive with low self-esteem
The way I dress makes every day feel like Halloween
I have no real problems but I like to make believe
I stole my sister's mascara now
I'm grounded for a week.
Sulking and writing poetry are my hobbies
I can't get through a Hawthorne
Heights album without sobbing
Girls keep breaking up with me,
It's never any fun.
They say they already have a pussy,
They don't need another one

Stop my breathing and slit my throat
I must be emo
I don't jump around when I go to shows
I must be emo
Dye in my hair and polish on my toes
I must be emo
I play guitar and write suicide notes
I must be emo

My life is just a black abyss,
You know, it's so dark.
And it's suffocating me.
Grabbing hold of me and tightening it's grip,
Tighter than a pair of
My little sister's jeans...
Which look great on me by the way.

When I get depressed I cut my
Wrists in every direction
Hearing songs about getting
Dumped give me an erection
I write in a live journal and
Wear thick rimmed glasses
I tell my friends I bleed black
And cry during classes
I'm just a bad, cheap, imitation of goth,
You can read me "Catcher in the
Rye", and watch me jack off.
I wear skin tight clothes while hating my life
If I said I like girls, I'd only be half right!

I look like I'm dead and dress like a homo
I must be emo
Screw XBox, I play old school Nintendo
I must be emo
I like to whine and hit my parentals
I must be emo
Me and my friends all look like clones
I must be emo

My parents just don't get me, you know.
They think I'm gay just because
They saw me kiss a guy.
Well, a couple guys. But I mean, it's the 2000's.
Can't 2... or 4 dudes make-out with
Each other without being gay?
I mean, chicks dig that kind of thing anyways.
I don't know diary,
Sometimes I think you're the only one that gets me,
You're my best friend...

    This is funny but its all stereotypes. They dont act like that. Everyone has a different way of expressing themselves and thats their way.
