    Cast member of it gets better, Sacha Sacket, was badly bullied in high school. Born in Iran, Sacha didn't disclose the harassment with his family and experienced severe alienation and depression. Years later, he discovered the story of Jamey - a young man who made a video for the It Gets Better Project documenting his own similar bullying experience. Tragically, Jamey took his own life in the fall of 2011 at age 15. Sacha wrote this song in one sitting in response to this tragic news, and he graciously shares it onstage as part of our performance.

    This version was recorded live in the Shatto Chapel at the First Congregational Church in Los Angeles - the same space where we held development workshops and rehearsals for the project.

    Mixed and Mastered by Mike Castonguay

    Lyrics:
    He tries to understand
    He turns the pages
    They say he's not a man
    It burns in stages
    And so
    Here's how the story goes
    He dies to let you know
    That the kids won't quit
    And his heart don't fit
    And his life is shit

    They say it's such a shame
    The war and wages
    They find some kids to blame
    And turn their pages
    But no
    Here's how the story goes
    He died to let you know
    That the kids won't quit
    And his heart don't fit
    And his life is shit
