Chapter 1

I walk by it every day
Falls every which way
But nobody seems to notice

Falling into a state of disrepair
And nobody is there
To clean up all around it

They seem to think about only themselves
With nobody else
Trying to get them to do the right thing

Your eyes are your own eyes so go ahead and use them
It'll work kind of like cold fusion
With two things becoming one

Chorus

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Procrastination will get you less than nowhere
Then proclaim that it's not fair
Hesitation was the cause

Have you gotten used to the odor in your home
And since you live alone
Your hands have become paws

Do you see the garbage on the side of the road
Ignore it as you go
Thinking someone else will probably clean it

People point it out and you say that it's not my problem
Others say that they've already got one
But it's just a different kind

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Don't be so stupid
Don't be so arrogant
So arrogant

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

vane 3071: This book taught me so much and I even began to think, no wait know, it's important that people of all ages learn more about it. I may only be 14 but all we've always been told is that there the "special kids" that they have "issues", basically that they weren't normal. If we were to associate wi...

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

WildFlower Fire: I have only read the first chapter and I LOVE the writing style. I am excited to meet the characters and want to find out more. Looking forward to the rest.

Deleted User: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Ariel: First book from the Author I've read, and am extremely impressed and very much satisfied that this story was a short-story, yet, filled with great writing, fantastic characters, and all I'd like is more, please. Malice, she is my favorite!!

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl. I especially love the idea of dwarves being seafaring folk instead of...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel.
