For far too long have you sent me astray,
Corrupting my life with a persona of gray
Here is where I'll make my stand,
Because compared to you, I personify the term grand
You don't deserve the treatment you get,
When you use me for your whim without a single regret
You know how you act, cold, heartless and abroad
Yet you seem to want me to treat you like a god
Just let these words sink into your skull,
For you deny your true self only to seem less dull
Even though all of your friends and I can see
How much of a liar you're growing to be
Open up, stop pretending and be yourself
Don't sit there and try to act like the devil himself
I can see through your guise, with that heartless mentality
You'll wind up destroying your life with a crude lethality
I've torn myself to pieces trying to sympathize
Getting myself lost in your ocular sunrise
What do I get in return for my care?
You use me in ways my fragile heart cannot bear
Flirting and prodding to keep me in line
Losing yourself in a bottle of wine
Do you think I can't see that you know what you do?
Your little act has become nothing more then see-through
Tearing me apart, piece by piece
Looking inside for some form of release
My question is, how much does a lie cost?
Is it worth it when you're alone and lost?
Just be you, let it all come clean
Give up this toxic routine
You're hurting yourself and those you hold close
Maybe then you'll feel a sense of repose.
