mandys got her head down
they say her music’s too loud
she’s only tryna shut out
what she knows ain't good for her

her father taught her nothing
he only cared for huffing
she wished her mama would help out
but she could not feel her touch

mandy’s got it penned out
she hopes no one can see how
prayed she had a friend now
she could say all she wanted to

but she’s stuck
in her room
she’s been there
for as long as she’s known
she can’t remember being young
and blowing out the candles on her thirteenth one
she wished she was gone

mandy had her head down
the voice inside was too loud
time spent thinking how to shut out
the caring thoughts of theirs

she sat upon the park bench
sunshine made her nails glint
reality skipped her mind since
her parents never heard

she can’t remember being young
or opening the presents on her thirteenth one
she wished she was gone
