The words that escaped my mouth
I regret them now, but the damage is done
I can’t escape your lies
They’re our burden now, our history told.
If you could release my soul
I would turn around, and face life on my own
But I can’t escape your eyes
Under lock and key, I just want to be free.
I don’t know where I should be
I'm hanging on to your sympathy
Grasping to your words of sand
Washing through your hollow hands.
Morality, blurring wrong from right
I’m a hypocrite, being brought to the light
No need to apologise
I’m a vengeful soul, so bear the fruits that you’ve sewn.
I will tear through all who I know
No inhibition now, crown of thorns on my throne
Its all hollow I realize
A mild distraction from the truths I dare see.
Forgiveness please come knock on my door
There’s no room in me to hate anymore
Let bitter scent subside
This isn’t me, not what I want to be.
