I’m locked up in this place but I can’t complain
I feel this pain that I can’t explain
I’d like to understand this fear, this strain
But all I do, I do in vain
You ignore my pain, what makes you think I’d do the same?
They’re all different, but expect me to stay sane
expect me to follow through with their game
No matter what we attain
No matter what we hit, you hear?
I wanna kick and scream out my fear
I’m terrified, get me out of here
Quick, before they come back
It might be a trap
Hide: before they stab you black
No worries, they won’t stop ’til you’re dead
If you run, if you hide, they’ll find you
Shoot you through the head
Beware! I’ve made this clear
But don’t you dare start calling me “dear”
I’m drowning, this is all so confusing
Wait: do I hear screaming?
Stop. Forget. And rewind back
I’ll follow you, even off the beaten track
I’m taken aback by your lack of tact
Backtrack: can’t you see where this went wrong?
Take this paperback, I’m sure we’ll get along
Go back to your shack where you belong
I’ll go my own way, leave me alone
I suspect an imminent attack: watch your back
I’m not on crack, doesn’t mean I don’t know payback
Flashback to when we were small:
To when you didn’t know that you had it all
Hurt me, pain me, what’s it to you?
You know I’ll always be there, through and through
Right beside you
What if I stop and watch you fall?
See you crumble, shrink back against the wall?
