Peer Pressure

Its not somethin you read about in books
Its bigger meaner and a lot worser than it looks

You often don't recogonize
The simplest forms of this
cause the pressure's almost always disguised.

"Go on. Take a smoke"
Thats not peer pressure
We're not dumb enough to dope

"Cancel plans with your mom
Go with us instead"
A Seemingly insignificant sentence.
But darlings, thats peer pressure

'Talk to her or hang out with us'
We're given the choice
we still don't know who to trust

Friends or family?
The decision's impossible.
But thats what we're expected to make.
Now tell me
Why are we quiet about this
Almost making it seem like its acceptable

"Forget that look,
you look bad.
Don't bother us with your poems
They're always about when you feel sad"

That may not be sentences from our friends
But its pressure anyway
Cause our talents are supprsesed
Our dreams are pulled away
