Low Self Opinion



Part of the song entitled 'Low Self Opinion' by the Rollins Band

I think you got a low self opinion man
I see you standing all by yourself
Unable to express the pain of your distress
You withdraw deeper inside
You alienate yourself,
And everybody else
They wonder what's on your mind
They got so tired of you
And your self ridicule
They wrote you off and left you behind


You sleep alone at night
You never wonder why
All this bitterness wells up inside you
You always victimize
So you can criticize yourself
And all those around you
The hatred you project
Does nothing to protect you
You leave yourself so exposed


You want to open up
When someone says
Lighten up
You find all you doors closed
Get youself a break from self rejection
Try some introspection
And you just might find
It's not so bad and anyway


At the end of the day
All you have is yourself and your mind


You sleep alone at night
You never wonder why
All this bitterness wells up inside you
You always victimize
So you can criticize yourself
And all those around you
The self hatred that blinds you
Binds you grinds you keeps you down


The world falls down around you
You build up walls around you
You war disgust like a crown
If you could see the you that I see
When I see you seeing me
You'd see yourself so differently
Believe me
