12 (who?)
We're all just numbers,
Never number one,
More like six six six,
But never number one.
Order me, add me, take me away,
You won't hear what I say,
Just call me crazy,
And label me some more.

Little lost digits in the wind,
I won't pretend,
To understand.
Why should I?
I'm just a number.

We're all not important,
Silly little stars,
Not even bothering to shine,
Just silly little stars.
Falling, burning, scatter the sky,
Wish I could fly,
You clipped my wings,
And killed me some more.

Little lost digits in the wind,
I won't pretend,
To understand.
Why should I?
I'm just a number.

We're all empty corpses,
Crawling with maggots,
In a six-foot bed of nothingness,
Just crawling with maggots.
Mourn me, miss me, know me,
I want to be free,
So please just forget,
And make it all stop.

Little lost digits in the wind,
I won't pretend,
To understand,
Why should I?
I'm just a number.
A worthless little number,
In a sea of slumber,
Pulling apart the world,
The world that I run.
Because I'm a number.
Not just,
Simply a number.

Little lost digits in the wind,
Don't pretend,
You understand,
You can't do,
You're just a number like me.
I've been listening to way too much Pencey Prep and this kinda just popped out... Sorry for it's crappiness. Inspired by both Pencey Prep and Slipknot. Meant to be a song, but kinda failed miserably.
Please let me know what you think/how to improve. :)

I'm number 12, I think. 12 is my lucky number. It's the day my mom was born, it's the month most of my boxers were born, it's the year I graduate, it's the year the world ends. What's not to like?

Well done, love. I look forward to more.

13 is my lucky number. It deserves more love than it gets.

I agree. Friday the thirteenth has never hurt me any. Besides, it came from an old templar legend where the pope had all of the knights burnt at the stake on Friday the thirteenth. I'm not really sure why that was relevant to my point but I'm sure it was in some obscure way.

I think this is beautiful and I thought of school when I read this. Lots of persecution and so many evils, yet nobody did anything and they were all just their lunch code.

Nobody really went anywhere or did anything, it was just a hysteria of evils that nobody will ever have to live down or attest to. I guess, in the long run, they'll bowl you over, but it just seems so unjust that there's no final retribution call, unless, of course, you believe in that sort of thing.

Ah well. At least they always have the fact that I took two milks down on paper.

P.S. We once had a war in my cafeteria. There was a duck in the lunch room, for some reason. I guess a farmer visited that day. Weird. He was covered in mash potatoes and a little gravy by the time we were all done. It was pretty much awesome. I had cookie stuck in my hair for 2 days.

Thank you very much and I can definitely see why this made you think of school. Everyone is treated the same and it is full of a lot of hate/evil that everyone ignores through fear of it being directed towards them instead.

I like the idea of karma having effect, thus making retribution. But I prefer the idea of self-bought revenge even more. If you don't get what I mean, I suggest you watch the music video for "I'm Not Okay" by My Chemical Romance ([link]). That video taught me a lot, i.e. the losers always win. :P

P.S. That sounds absolutely awesome! At my old primary school we were next to a farm and a herd of cows invaded once. That was pretty epic.

P.P.S. Thank you very much for the lovely, detailed, extremely helpful critiques you've been giving. I really appreciate them! :glomp:

I loved that video, thank you. It made my day, especially with everything seeming so bleak for me right now.

P.S. That sounds pretty hardcore. D: Did any of the cows headbutt your teachers? Or did your teachers headbutt a cow? I wouldn't consider them very worthy of teaching if they did. Cows have very tough heads.

P.P.S. You're quite welcome, sweetheart. I do what I can and you're a very good writer and a thriving student, so I believe the energy is well-spent. Please continue to write! I love critiquing your work, it's very good, especially for your age.

I'm glad you liked that video; it's my all-time favorite. Apart from maybe the one for Ballad of Mona Lisa by Panic! At The Disco ( [link] ) which is this awesome steampunk video. I'm sorry that things are bleak for you, I'll listen if you want to talk. I know I'm only some weird fifteen-year-old girl with no understanding of life, but I'm always happy to listen.

P.S. Nobody was harmed, although the cows left a fair few "presents" all over the school.

P.P.S. :hug:

Very nice. The extendo-punch knockout gun is epic. But it should've been cocked to show the rage of the people. Screw you, Mary! Murdering people, harumph!

Maybe we can talk sometime, but I really don't have much to talk about. Just my ex and my mental illness, it's been grating on me lately. Maybe that's why I've been thinking about my ex lately. And by the way, you may be young, but you're quite mature for your age and have experienced a lot, very quickly. I trust your advice. There's really not much to life, anyhow. That's the boring part and the part that probably sucks the most because when something does happen, it's hard to deal with.

P.S. Were there any tripping accidents? A friend of mine once tripped on some cow poo and fell in it. He had a disk-shaped mark on his back and we all called him Cowpie Man. It was awesome.

P.P.S. :squee: :tighthug:

Yes; screw Mary! How dare she murder Brendon Urie?! :iconbrendonurieplz:

We can talk whenever you want. I'm always ready to listen (read) what you have to say (type). :hug:

P.S. I think a few kids did slip in some of the residue crap. I can't really remember though, I was only like seven-years-old when it happened.

P.P.S. :iconunicornglompplz: :iconbatglompplz: :iconhuggleplz:

Thank you. :D I don't have much to talk about right now though. Just my schizophrenia. It's kinda scary, even if I do get along with my subconscious.

P.S. I think I remember you talking about that. xD Haha.

P.P.S. <3<3<3
