Walk Away

We can hear them laughing For me, it was a lifetime ago For you, it's happening right now

They're going to keep laughing Because we're different Because we don't communicate like they do Because we don't understand the rules they have

It doesn't matter what they do They can't hurt us anymore They can't make us feel bad anymore

Take my hand And I'll show you what real kindness looks like

Let's leave them behind And walk away into a brighter future
