Fatism
Do you ever make fun of people bigger then you?
People who eat more then you?
People who can't always help how they look?
Do you make cruel jokes and snide remarks at their expense?
Just because you think that you can?
Just because you think you're so much better because you're pretty and skinny?
Then yes, I'm afraid sad but true
You are guilty
Guilty indeed
Guilty of...
Fatism!


More then just a disease
It can become a obsession
Driving both you and your victim out of your minds
Dangerous to your health
Making you do things that normally you know you would never do
Taking such twisted perverse pleasure in their pain
Never ever dreaming that one day
Years on later down the road
You just might wind up walking in some size 16 pants of your own
Struggling day by day just to live
Laughed at hour after hour
On the hour
The verbal abuse neverending
The agony of your tears pushing you ever closer
Closer to a permanent solution
Willing to do anything
Anything at all
Even the worse self sin of them all
Just to escape from your fellow narrow-minded man's point of view of....
Fatism


What's it gonna take to make you see?
What's it gonna take to get to stop?
Does someone really have to die before you take a step back?
Before you understand
The real monster here is you
Constantly pushing 'em around
Refusing to admit
Just how much you really admire them
For the self-confidence you wish you had
The comfort in their own skin that you wish you could feel in your own
Burning you up so much inside that you just can't hold it in any longer
So out of your own hell you must break out
To shatter their dreams
Their hopes and their desires
Hating them just for being different from you
How pathetic is that?
How much of a loser are you to judge them?
You're no God
You've got no right
All you've got is a small narrow mind
Sadly filled to the very top and overflowing with....
Fatism


So what if a man or a woman you see on the street is obese?
So what?
It does't make them a beast
It does't make them less of a person
It does however make you less
A whole hell of a lot less
For being such an ass in the first place
For being so quick and harsh to judge
When someday
Maybe when you're 50 or more
You just might look the same and what then?
Would you really expect any mercy from those you poked fun at?
Do you really think your muscle bound will still want you then?
Then when you're the overweight one in the mirror?
I don't think so and neither do you
So if you really care to wise up and make no more mistakes
Then you will take a moment and listen to me now
Heeding my warning before it's too late
You can make all the fun you want now but just remember this
Someday when you're one of them
One of the ones who does't quite fit in cos they up
Just a little more room then most
Just remember this
When you're alone
Heartbroken and crying
It did't have to be this way
You did't have to be this way
Just remember
Narrow-minded, cruel little joke a man.....


Just remember.....


It was your fatism that got you here
