Is there any sense in me trying to stunt your pointless debate?
No, I'd rather lay back and let your vocal chords gyrate
While your words used to lock me up like an inmate on death row,
I now stand tall in front of you, while you hold nothing over me, not even a shadow.
So speak all you want, but know your words will fall on deaf ears
Now that you've left a mark on my life that'll persist for years
Maybe when none of your peers will hear you out, you'll have a reason to ponder what you did,
As you've taken advantage of a heart that was devout, with those piercing knives you hid behind your eyelids
I'd tried to keep myself off the grid to run from this problem
Kept my opinions to myself and attached my demeanor to something more solemn
But when you've treated a man wrong, don't expect a damn love song
For I'd rather inhale my pain and show myself that I'm strong
Because I don't need a lover to realise my capabilities
I've got a plethora of reasons to trust in my abilities
A track record of heartbreak is nothing more then a poor strain of luck
It's no reason to allow myself to get stuck
Being nostalgic might have it's perks, but I don't need to tint my glasses for you
As a rose to represent your persona is unfitting, of that much I can construe
Out of all the things I put up with to aquire your love
You've quickly become the thing I'm the most sick of.
