This song is about a girl who is metaphorically named, Midnight Pearl. She is consistently bullied in her school by her peers for doing normal things, every day, like trying a new hairstyle. She suffers from anxiety and panic attacks and sometimes ponders suicide.


Verse 1:
There was a girl, Midnight Pearl
Basking in dark desires
She slips away to a day that she hopes never comes

Her beauty is masked by their veils of untruth
How can she face them, their fountain of youth
Day in and day out she repels verbal daggers
How did she get here she asks, oh yeah
I wore my hair straight
And ever since then I've been their fountain of hate

I see your glares I see your thoughts
No I’m not deaf, I see you balk
I slip away to a day that I hope never comes

Verse 2:
She gets through another day
This time undiscovered
Though she’s home free she still feels smothered as the spiral of darkness comes
Chest is tight heart beating fast
How did I get here she asks, oh yeah
I wore the wrong shoes
Ever since then I’ve been their fountain of muse


She screams, her fears
Her joys, her tears
Where’s the balance, here’s the pain
She holds her breath, please God
Bring the rain

Is there someone out there, who cares for me
Is there someone out there, who cares for me
Oh yeah
