  • Just ‘cause you’re breathing,
    Doesn’t mean you're alive,
    Just ‘cause you’re clever,
    Doesn’t mean that you’re wise,
    Just ‘cause you’ve faith,
    Doesn’t mean that you’re kind,
    Because you can see,
    Doesn’t mean you’re not blind.
    Just ‘cause you’re loving,
    Doesn’t mean you know love,
    And by sitting in church,
    You don’t speak for Above,
    Just ‘cause you’re hurting,
    Doesn’t make you unique,
    And because you feel down,
    Doesn’t mean that you’re weak,
    Just ‘cause you're thinking,
    Doesn’t mean you don’t strive,
    Just ‘cause you’re breathing,
    Doesn’t mean you're alive.
