TOXICITY

When he was young he was told not to cry

He doesn't really know why

The toxic cult of masculine

Ruined so many lives

The need to compete, the fear to fail

Of the alpha male

Constantly craving for success

Never settle for less

Wash your mouth out with soap

Do as you're told

The rules he'll take to the grave

Of how to behave

When he looks back it's always in shame

Finding someone to blame

But there's one thing he will always despise

The mirror never lies

Wash your mouth out with soap

Do as you're told

The rules he'll take to the grave

Of how to behave

Waiting on a friend to come,

She never comes, she stays away

So he retreats into the day

He's looking for someone to magic away

All the hidden pain

But no one's there when he calls out in vain

All alone again

Wash your mouth out with soap

Do as you're told

The rules he'll take to the grave

Of how to behave
