Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


I'm here again.
Chained down by my anger,
bound by my hopelessness,
Charged by my pain,
to find a purpose.

Where were you,
when I came tumbling down?
Where were you,
when my wings were broken,
with all my words unspoken,
you were close by,
and stood without a sound.

You aren't here at this trial,
weren't there at that tribulation.
If it ever comes back around,
I hope you realize what you did.
I wish you would understand.
I wish you no pain,
just to understand this...

Where were you,
when I came tumbling down?
Where were you,
when my wings were broken,
with all my words unspoken,
you were close by,
and stood without a sound.

I'm through with this now,
I can't keep it together anymore.
I'm sick of you acting like I owe you something.
I'm sick of the ways you can anger me with one word.
I'm no longer your beast to control.

Where were you,
when I came tumbling down?
Where were you,
when my wings were broken,
with all my words unspoken,
you were close by,
and stood without a sound.
