My life is spiraling downward, I couldn't get enough money to go see the Blood Red Romance and Suffocate me Dry tour, it sucks cause they play some of my favorite songs like Stab my Heart Because I Love You and Rip Apart my Soul and of course Stabby Rip Stab Stab.
It doesnt help that I couldn't get my hair to do that flippy thing like that guy from that band can do...some days you know.
normal person: I'm an emo kid non-conforming as can be, you would be non-conforming too if you looked just like me.
I have paint on my nails and make-up on my face, I'm almost emo enough to start shaving my legs. Cause I feel real deep when I'm dressing in drag,
I call it freedom of expression most just call me a fag. Cause their dudes look like chicks, and their chicks look like dykes, cause emo is one step below transvestite. Stop my breathing and slit my throat, I must be emo,
I don't jump around when I go to shows, I must be emo. I'm dark, and sensitive with low self-esteem the way I dress makes everyday feel like halloween, I have no real problems but I like to make-believe,
I stole my sisters mascera now I'm grounded for a week.
Sulking and writing poetry are my hobbies, I can't get through a Hawthorne Heights album without sobbing.
Girls keep breaking up with me, it's never any fun, they say they already have a pussy, they don't need another one.
ANNOYING EMO KID: those kids who regularly max out daddy's credit card at hot topic and tell everyone how depressed they are and that they cut their arms up every night wanting to die (ok...where are the scars?). they only listen to 'underground' bands adn immediately stop when someone they think is popular or preppy starts to listen to them, or they see them on mtv (which they claim never to watch, but they still do). they intentionally do stupid and rebellious things trying to make authority figures mad, thinking it's cool. these people are attention-craving, tasteless, abnoxious emo kids. anything popular is completely disregarded to them. they also tell ppl that they think drugs are sooooooooooo cool, but are scared to do them, but do them anyway because they think it'll make them cool
ANNOYING EMO KID: the guy who draws on a bruise to make ppl think his dad hits him and who only talks to other ANNOYING EMO KIDS
What is the point of my life?
I hate everything.
TRUE EMO KID was most likely emo before this was a stupid fad. May shop at hot topic, but only if they actually like the clothing, not because they think it will make them look cool. Probably classified by friends and others as "emo"...the label is often not self-professed in the case of the true emo kid. Doesn't give a shit whether music is mainstream or not...it just has to be artistic.
2) The style of clothing stereotypically worn by fans of emo music. This consists of, in general: tight band t-shirts or vintage 80's t-shirts, longer (messy) hair often died black, tight (usual girl's) pants, shoes by Vans or Converse, messenger bags, anything checkered (usually black-and-white or black-and-pink), studded belts, thick-framed glasses, neckties, etc.
(Note: girl emo kids often cut their hair short in the back and angled down in the front, less often died black)
3) The mood that stereotypically displays being an emo kid. They are generally considered the subculture of high-school, and while sometimes referred to as manic depressive or "cutters," are usually quite social. Very romantic, often downtrodden. More realistically, teenagers who listen to heavy music and have no qualms with displaying their emotions. (ie, don't feel the need to prove themselves as "bad-@$$," like many rock fans.)
