You hid yourself
Upon simpler days
Now let the tracking
Of the mistakes have its way

Taught them how to fight
But not to resist
The single adoring thoughts
It’s knives against a kiss

Lost my trust fund
But no one stops smiling
Now the wolves have
Found their scent
Due to lack of priority

You can enjoy whoring out your time
Suggest one thing and then another
You finish nothing and say there’s tomorrow

I’m so happy we aren't good friends
I’m so tired I can’t read
And you said you’d be okay
But I know that in a few weeks
I’ll get nothing, get fucked over
And you’ll have your way
Is it too much to ask for?

It’s so different now
If I told you would say
“No, I don’t believe you, not a word you say”.
My thoughts, surely scrambled
It’s a bit forced don’t you think?
Don’t you think? Of course not.
