Zachary James - Talkin' Back

Comments are comin' through faster than I can keep up with inside of my head
I'm, startin' to question why did I do all this?
Should I just give up instead?
Silly question Zach, what's the answer?
Haters attacking me quicker than cancer
Take a stance, don't give 'em a glance
These options leave me with my hands up

Judgin' me off of a 10 minute video
Tell me this isn't real life
This isn't what mommy and daddy intended
When they said to always be nice
I'm typing back cuz you left a comment
Sayin' you wish I was dead
Just calm down Zach, it's too much man
Does he really mean what he said

Ok ok, say something wise
Umm
Maybe life is treating you a little unfair
Ugh! Forget it, why do I care

This is a struggle I deal with daily
Could I calm down a little, yeah, maybe
But I wanna know why people hate me
Before they say I sound crazy
If that's too much to ask
Fine, I get it
Slap on the wrist for some kid, quit it
But when he comes in with a smashed eyelid
It'll be me sayin, look what you did
I'm not sayin' that I'd do it
I'm just sayin' don't lie to him
Fact is when there's a confrontation
There will always be two sides to it
Type out your hate, ten seconds in
Form your opinions, I'm goin' in
You've got your iPhone, I've got a pen
Here comes the chorus, I'll be back again


Here I am, givin' my all
People act like I can't stand tall
Leave your comments, pass your judgement
I was taught to rise when I fall
Everyone said that I should give up
Not gonna lie, it's kinda rough
Guess I can take it, I'll toughen up
But at some point, enough is enough

I was just thinking, let's play a game
See who's first to go insane
I'll take your place, you take mine
You're guaranteed to go out of your mind
The problem is not that I'm so insecure or whatever it was that you said
It's people like you showin' up just to make sure that more negativity spreads
Maybe you think that because I sound angry that might be the reason why some people hate me
But I've been a nice guy since my momma named me and lately I'm kinda concerned for my safety
What's that? You're shocked
I'm tellin' the truth
Not all of these haters are still in their youth
One moment I'm fine, then they're comin' through
Oh wait, I'm good, I'm locked in the booth
Funny how you change the subject
When I was just startin' to love this
As soon as I made a good point and you noticed
You suddenly seemed to have lost all your focus
I turned to writing so I could release
Let a new part of me off of it's leash
You come in whining, what's with this beat
Shh. Be quiet. I finally found peace

Here I am, givin' my all
People act like I can't stand tall
Leave your comments, pass your judgement
I was taught to rise when I fall
Everyone said that I should give up
Not gonna lie, it's kinda rough
Guess I can take it, I'll toughen up
But at some point, enough is enough

Cut like a knife, your words amaze me
How we got here, this is crazy
They're right to say, these words won't change me
Wrong to think, these words don't phase me
Judge me or not, I'm still gonna make it
Question is whether or not you can face it
Stand on the stage knowin' I never faked it
You watch from your couch thinkin' man I can't take it
I made it, you didn't, you chose your position
And now you sit there with a crucial decision
Accept me or not I was born with this vision
So if you come back you'll need more ammunition
