Here goes the story of a kid we thought we knew
He hid a hate inside and had a state of mind
That put him in his grave
It began with his friends
They never noticed the despair in his eyes
From the pressure
(From the pressure)
His life was etched in stone
Before he made a choice of his own

And he's dedicated
For everyday that he made it on his own
In his fathers eyes he's a pair of dice and
He wont be number one
(Be number one)
He wont be number one

So he tries to comply
With everything they've ever asked. And his life
Is stitched with one-way tickets
To places he don't want to visit
He says:
I'm never gonna be perfect
Maybe I don't deserve this. But
I'm doing the best I can
I've never dealt with the pressure
Feels like my whole life's etched in stone
Before I've made a choice of my own

And he's dedicated
For everyday that he made it on his own
In his fathers eyes
He's a pair of dice
He wont be number one
(Be number one)

So save your breath cause you'll
Need it when you hang from a rope
Cause of death:
Obvious from your suicide note
The last words that filled the page:
If no one will listen then no one
Will miss when I'm gone
Across town his dad falls asleep all alone
Never knowing he was never going to come home
The last thoughts that filled his head
I'll tell him I'm sorry
I'll say I regret what I said
It's your life
I'll live my own life instead

And he's dedicated
For everyday that he made it on his own
In his fathers eyes he's a pair of dice
He wont be number one

He never won

(He wont be number one)

His bedrooms filled with emptiness tonight
As the silence cuts through like a knife
Knowing he's not there

He was dedicated
For everyday that he made it on his own
In his fathers eyes he's a pair of dice
He wont be number one

I'm never gonna be perfect
Maybe I don't deserve this
(It takes me?)
I wont be number one

And the story goes on and on
And no one seems to care

We will let him know we care

They cut the rope, it's to late now
