Farewell,
This blackened eye.
Your learned your lessons falling down.
Far behind, and tracing footsteps home.

Despite your lack of pride.
You wore your imperfections well.
Dignified.
Spend your time alone.
Trace your footsteps home.

Your hands are always reaching out of favor.
Your kind are only good for bad behavior.
Your mouth was never one to trust.
You're always speaking out,
Falling far behind,
Falling out of line.

Farewell,
This bitter tongue.
You spoke your lessons falling down, talking out,
And breaking silence.

Despite the harm you've done,
You swallowed your rejection well.
Amplified.
Sing your song alone.
Trace your footsteps home.

Your hands are always reaching out of favor.
Your kind are only good for bad behavior.
Your mouth was never one to trust.
You're always speaking out,
Falling far behind,
Falling...

Your hands are always reaching out of favor.
Your kind are only good for bad behavior.
Your mouth was never one to trust.
You're always speaking out,
Falling far behind,
Falling out of line.

    I think this song talks about either her or someone else she knew when she was younger. The younger student was always getting in trouble from getting in fights to just speaking out in class. I believe this song gives a sense of pity to the troubling student and tries to give them a sense of hope that someone still cares for them.
