We are the ones you ignore,
The girl with her hair over her face,
Who hides in the back of the class,
Who veils herself with anonymity.
We are the victims, the wreckage,
The boy, beaten and broken,
Tossed aside, for another bully to abuse,
The child who never had a friend.

We are the ones you pity,
The girl who cuts her soul,
Every time she looks in the mirror,
The face looking back her nightmare.
We are the ones who were worthless,
The boy who never liked sports,
Who mused on words, who crafted poems,
Who was the pariah for not liking violence.

We are the ones you never hear.
We don't fill the world with endless chatter,
We don't speak every idle thought.
We bide our time, let it simmer within.
We are the ones you remember,
The girl with striking eyes, wise yet young.
The boy who never could stop the music,
The person who composed symphonies of color.

We are the ones you hate.
We are different, the children of Creation.
We are the ones you bully, the ones
You can't bear to see successful
We are the ones you diagnose,
Call us strange, call us different.
We're unique, a thousand hues of color
Standing bright and strong from the grey.

We who are silent,
We are at fault also. 
We who are silent, 
Must learn to sing.

We who are silent must remain silent no longer.
Let us shout, so that the whole world hears us.
Let us sing, and bring heaven down to earth, 
Let us roar, and shake the foundation of empires.
We who are different, unite under our Creator.
Let us charge into battle, song at our lips,
Our banner bright and strong, our sword Creation.
We who are different, forward to Salvation!
Like Empty Rapture, the title just came to me.

We who are silent must learn to speak, we who are quiet must learn to sing.

"The girl with her hair over her face,
Who hides in the back of the class,"

Yep, that was me.

I love this. I can relate to every word and I love that it ends with a strong, empowering tone. It's like an anthem for the misfits.  :buckshake:
